Newmat's 'NewAcoustic' Stretch Ceilings Reuce Noise in Large Spaces
Chicago, December 4, 2007. The NewAcoustic stretch ceiling system is designed for high acoustical absorption for ceiling or wall applications. Designed by Newmat, a specialist in stretch ceilings, this system consists of a patented microperforated PVC membrane that can be installed by itself or over an acoustical core.
NewAcoustic, one of many Newmat lines, is a flexible PVC membrane cut to order and stretched onto a PVC or aluminum extruded rail with a semi-rigid perimeter harpoon pre-welded on the membrane. The maximum size for each ceiling section is 250 sq. ft. to 1250 sq. ft. depending on the selected color and finish. Large projects may require a divider or double rail to create manageable-sized sections. NewAcoustic provides a noise-reduction coefficient (NRC) from 0.5 to 1.0, a range that can be customized depending on a selected acoustical core (if desired) and the mounting type. Special grommets and rings are available for any fixture that needs to penetrate the membrane such as lights, vents, smoke detectors, or sprinklers. This installation is performed after ceiling installation.
This material has been installed in numerous large-scale, well-known facilities in the United States such as the Olympic Club in San Francisco, St. Louis Zoo's "Penguin and Puffin Coast," The Gym in Englewood, N.J., and the Apple Store in multiple locations
Since 1986, Newmat Stretch Ceiling Systems have provided the acoustical, architectural, design, and lighting communities with a creative and technically advanced ceiling system. Developed over 30 years ago in Sweden as a remedy for damaged plaster ceilings, PVC stretch ceiling have become an ideal solution for this situation. However, through years of advancements and continuing development, the stretch ceilings' numerous technical and aesthetic advantages have made them the ideal choice for unlimited applications.
