‘Exceptional acoustics’ from canopies and baffles
UK manufacturer, Zentia, has launched what it dubs ‘a market-leading range’ of mineral ceiling canopies and baffles.
It says the new ‘ceiling solutions’ will give specifiers further design flexibility on projects. Zentia said: “The canopies and baffles are also quick and easy to install, and therefore ideal for contractors working on both new-build and refurbishment projects.” Both the canopies and baffles are said to offer ‘exceptional acoustics’, with double-sided sound absorption making them ‘the product of choice for areas with high footfall and user volume’. The canopies can also be used as wall absorbers, adding style and sound absorption performance to interior walls in open plan, high traffic areas. In these instances, they are easily installed onto walls with spiral anchors and L-type screws.
Available in white as standard, both the canopies and baffles feature 80% light reflectance to help bounce natural light around a space and reduce the use of artificial light. Manufactured with an 85% recycled glass fibre core, and a scrimmed, laminated finish for ease of cleaning to maintain hygiene standards, they also feature 90% relative humidity resistance, maintaining their shape and structure in warm, humid environments.
“For contractors,” Zentia added, “both are supremely simple and speedy to install, the baffles featuring an integrated suspension anchor, and the canopies a spiral anchor hanging kit.” Both perform to fire safety standard EEA Euroclass A2-s2, d0 EN 13501-1.
Zentia Sales and Marketing director, Graham Taylor, said: "We are delighted to now be able to introduce the new canopies and baffles range to help secure our mineral tile offering to specifiers and contractors, and give them ultimate design and installation flexibility."
