A PolySorpt™ Acoustic Ceiling Tile is a non-fibrous sound absorbing panel that can be used in a wide variety of environments to reduce ambient noise levels and excessive reverberation. Great for use both indoors and outdoors, these sound absorbent ceiling tiles are light weight and easy to install.
The ceiling tiles can be glued directly to any ceiling or fit into ceiling grid systems, and are offered in a standard flat surface pattern or a more decorative designer style, giving you aesthetic options for your sound treatment.

WHat is the difference in the flat surface versus the designer surface?
Aimee Sanford – April 28, 2015:
Hi Linda, The only difference between the flat and designer surfaces are aesthetic. I’ve attached a photo of a white designer surface panel, and a flat black panel. Please give us a call if you have any other questions! 800 782 5742

Can you paint the noise reduction tiles or will that have an adverse effect on their performance?
PolySorpt Panels can be painted, but it does effect the absorption ratings. However, a thin layer of sprayed on paint only decreases absorption marginally. If you must paint, apply it this way and you won’t notice a significant decrease in effectiveness.

What tiles would you recommend for noise reduction from upstairs neighbor? I am looking to reduce noise in my apartment from ceiling.
If you are trying to block sound transmission through your ceiling from your neighbor above, you need a product that with block noise, not just absorb it. If you have a drop tile ceiling assembly you can check out our sound blocking ceiling tiles and drop tile barrier. If you do not, you can check with your landlord and see if he would mind you using a damping compound like QuietGlue Pro and additional drywall on your ceiling. Please call in if you have any more questions about these or other soundproofing methods! 800-782-5742

Which product would you recommend for a restaurant. Trying to reduce the sound level…gets way to high on busy nights. I have a concrete floor, high ceilings, reclaimed wood walls. Nothing to help capture any of the sound. Flat surface for where the product would be applied to…. Thanks – David
We actually did an installation of Acoustical Clouds on a project that sounds very similar to yours. The clouds were chosen because like your restaurant, the surfaces were all flat and hard, and the owner didn’t wish to cover his walls (especially reclaimed wood!). So the best option was to apply sound absorbing materials to the high ceiling. Check out the case study here and the product used, our Sustainable Series Clouds.

Can the Polyabsorb style be effective if there are spaces left open in between the ceiling and tiles? I don’t want to completely cover the open ceiling. It is a metal ceiling with industrial open grid type tracks where I could place/lay tile in between at 4-6 feet at length tile. Almost in float formations. Thx
Yes, these tiles will still be effective even if the ceiling is not completely covered. The face of the tiles will absorb the noise that reaches it, and sound waves that go between will deflect off the ceiling and some will be absorbed by the back of the tiles. Of course, covering the entire ceiling would allow for the most sound absorption, but may not be entirely necessary for your purpose.

Will polySorpt ceiling stop me from hearing the kid in the apartment up stairs from me run and jump over my head?
These ceiling tiles are meant to absorb noise in the room they are being installed in, not block sound coming in from other areas. If you want to stop footfall noise entering the room from the floor above, the best thing to do would be to use a damping compound like QuietGlue Pro and additional drywall to cut the vibration transmission. You could also create a ‘floating celing’ by decoupling with isolation clips. This article from our blog explains soundproofing in more detail.
Please give us a call if you still have questions. Soundproofing ceilings can be done in a few different ways, but our experienced sales representatives have talked many customers through the process and would be glad to do so for you: 1-800-782-5742

Will these panels help in reducing the noise coming from upstairs?
These ceiling tiles will not stop noise coming from the floor above. They are absorptive, meaning they will reduce noise inside the room that they are installed. Click here to see a list of our barrier ceiling tiles, meant to block noise.
Other options commonly used for this issue are using a floor underlayment on the level above you, or creating a ‘floating ceiling’ on your level. This requires isolation clips, two layers of drywall, and damping compound like QuietGlue Pro.

Can these panels be easily cut to fit around ceiling fixtures?
Yes, PolySorpt Ceiling Tiles can be cut to fit around ceiling fixtures. The material they are made of, polypropylene, feels almost like styrofoam and can be easy cut and shaped with a utility knife.

Can PolySorpt Ceiling Tiles be installed directly to the underside of wood roof trusses spaced 2ft oc ? Glue or staple or power nail?
Eric Peters – April 28, 2015:
Robert – Yes you could direct mount the PolySorpt panels directly to the underside of the wood trusses, however I would recommend using a mechanical fastener such as a staple or nail along with an adhesive on the back of the tile such as LocTite power Grab. Also keep in mind these tiles are sized for drop in ceiling grids so the tiles actually measure 23 3/4″ x 47 3/4″ and if I were installing in this fashion I would space them out some instead of having them abutt one another. Thanks for the question!
