New Acoustical Ceiling Tiles Help Dampen Sound & Enhance Interiors

The noise in the basement from a loud movie playing on the TV or the sound of someone practicing in your music room - you've probably known there are ways to soften that noise and reduce how much it travels. 

Technology in sound absorption has been advancing and now you don’t have to worry about background noise when you’re on an important call or just enjoying quiet time.

And with Dakota Tin's new Acoustical Ceiling Tiles, you can add a really unique look to a room while absorbing noise.

What Are Acoustical Ceiling Tiles?

Acoustic ceiling tiles are tiles designed to suppress background noise in a room. 

The fine perforations within Dakota Tin's metal acoustical ceiling tiles produce a remarkable acoustic performance, therefore making them great for noise reduction in a wider choice of environments, including music rooms, home theaters, restaurants, government facilities, bars, airports, coffee shops, lecture halls, offices, music venues, recording studios, and even commercial buildings.

Acoustical ceiling tiles are good soundproofing materials. Soundproofing through absorption is a sound insulation technique where sound waves hit a surface and get absorbed within the material. Unwanted sound as a result of resonances, reflection of echoes, or reverberations, is restricted from either exiting or entering a room. 

Dakota Tin's Acoustical Ceiling Tiles have been found to absorb 80% of sound. Through testing, our acoustical tiles have been rated for a NOISE REDUCTION COEFFICIENT (NRC) of 0.8. This is significantly higher than most common fiber ceiling tiles at around 0.55!

Why Acoustical Ceiling Tiles Are a Great Choice

Plenty of ceiling tiles exist on the market today and there are even many choices in how to dampen sound with tiles. But there are few choices that give you such a unique look as our rustic metal tiles.
