Introduction

Acoustic Ceiling Clouds are sound absorbing materials that are suspended from a ceiling and reduce unwanted echo and reverberation in a room.

What are Acoustic Ceiling Clouds?

Acoustic Ceiling Clouds are suspended from a ceiling or other structure. They can be made from fabric wrapped panels, foam, perforated metal, polyester, or other materials. Hanging clouds from the ceiling achieves a floating look and actually increases the sound absorbing effectiveness of the material by providing an air space between the cloud and the hard reflective surface of the ceiling.

Why are Acoustic Ceiling Clouds Important?

Many commercial buildings, offices, schools, aquatic centers, gyms, and places of worship suffer from large amounts of reverberation and echo. This unwanted noise is caused by the hard surfaces of the walls, ceilings, and floors reflecting noises repeatedly. This reverb makes understanding conversations very difficult. Using the proper amount of ceiling clouds can absorb the reverb and turn the room into a more usable and comfortable space.
