Typically, we do not add additional support. The reason being most of the ceiling grid that we encounter is in the commercial environment. So, the typical ceiling grid we encounter meets or exceeds weight requirements.
The material we use is an EVA polymer: Ethylene Vinyl Acetate. The basic chemical formula is (C2H4)n(C4H6O2)m. No Cl (chlorine). Inorganic fillers are used to gain mass. Typically, Calcium Carbonate (chalk), as well as non-toxic and organic processing aids. Typically, we use re-claimed mineral oils. The compounds this polymer are manufactured in a way that it is fully compliant with REACH standards. All EVA PrivacyShield® products supplied are manufactured from 100% reclaimed materials and is 100% non-toxic as well as 100% proudly manufactured in America by Americans. It is the term Vinyl that concerns most consumers. The name Vinyl as it is often associated with Poly Vinyl Chloride(PVC). Even though the term Vinyl, in chemistry, specifically identifies the orientation of Carbon and Hydrogen on a functional group (−CH=CH2). There is significant misinformation about PVC in the market place.

The PrivacyShield® Ceiling Tile Barrier is installed over existing ceiling tiles in a suspended ceiling grid to block sound. These mass loaded ceiling tile backers reduce the amount of sound and noise that is able to enter and exit the ceiling plenum. Ceiling tile barrier backers can be installed in both new and existing spaces to reduce the amount of sound transmitted from one space to the next. These are used when wall partitions do not extend up above the ceiling grid to the roof deck and offer an economical alternative to building full partition walls.
