WhisperCeiling®

Acoustic Ceiling Solutions

Three acoustic ceiling panel options with vast customisation opportunities. An effective and impressive solution for every space.

WhisperCeiling®

Site-built acoustic installations offering increased flexibility and custom design options.

WhisperBaffle®

A vertically suspended panel solution that provides increased acoustic absorption and spatial aesthetics.

WhisperCloud®

Hanging panels that suspend from ceilings to provide increased acoustic absorption and spatial aesthetics.

WhisperCeiling®

WhisperCeiling® is an upholstered panelling system that is built directly into the wall or ceiling and constructed on-site.
The panels can be customised to the given space or used to add acoustic elements that blend into the existing surroundings. They are available in a vast range of colours and patterns and our custom art and design options allow for a huge range of possibilities.
The materials consist of a PVC track profile encasing a sheet of core acoustic foam. The sheet of core material is porous so as to absorb sound vibration and thus reduce unwanted noise.

TRACK PROFILE*
30mm square panel end cap.

POLYESTER ACOUSTIC FILL*
Thickness: 25mm
Weight: 2300gsm
NRC: 0.85
Constructed from 100% polyester fibres and thermally bonded to form the structure of the panel.

*50mm profile with 48mm acoustic fill is also available (NRC 0.9)

FIRE TESTING
NCC Specification C1.10-4 Fire Hazard Properties.
ISO 9705 Fire Test – full scale room test for surface products.
Group Number: Group 1.
Smoke Growth Rate: Less than 100.
NCC Classification: Group 1.

FABRIC
Various acoustically transparent fabrics are available, allowing for better absorption and increased noise reduction. We recommend their use after confirming acoustic transparency and stretchability through rigorous testing and years of experience.
The polyester acoustic fill is manufactured under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Quality and Environmental Management Systems, without chemical binders and using minimum 60% already recycled polyester fibre (from PET plastic)

Panels are manufactured based on instructions from your technical team who has tested the space and determined the most suitable locations for noise control. This may include determining a certain amount of metreage needed to reduce noise levels to desired specifications, or to meet legal requirements.

Each panel is wrapped tight with the chosen acoustic fabric and tucked into the appropriate groove in the track profile. 100mm of bleed is used for tucking the fabric and for proper alignment of artwork.
Installation is done in-situ and is completely customised to fit the space.
Our team can adapt to constructional irregularities and build around objects, switches and other intrusions which may be problematic.
Certain spaces might require scaffolding or rigging to be set up. Particularities in installation are relative to each space and should be discussed in detail to guarantee safety and efficiency.

Since the system is built directly into the architecture, installations have to follow the restrictions of printers and fabric dimension, not panel size. Large images can be split into numerous sections across the ceiling, allowing for unlimited size options so long as the content and construction is engineered accordingly (and the image tolerates pattern matching)
There are important factors that must be considered for a smooth ceiling installation such as:

1) Wall material (e.g. Gyprock, brick, timber etc.)
2) Wall penetrations (e.g. powerpoints, smoke alarms, light switches etc.)
3) Site accessibility
4) Ceiling height (is a forklift or scaffolding needed?)
5) Working hours for installation (day/night?)

It is crucial that these details are communicated early on in the process in order to minimise complications during engineering and installation.

WhisperBaffle®

WhisperBaffle® panels are vertical panels, either suspended from a ceiling or held in position through a third-party infrastructure such as a divider. They are designed to provide noise control in spaces that don’t allow for dropped ceilings or require additional sound treatment.

The vertical panels are versatile and applicable in many different areas, providing acoustic absorption and an appealing spatial aesthetic.
Custom design options allow for an almost unlimited choice of colour and design. Choose from any of our existing high resolution art and photographs, or supply your own.
Maximum panel size: 1.2 x 2.4m

MATERIALS
Track profile (square end cap): 2.6m/stick
Split batten (Z clip): 3 panels/stick
25mm Core: 2.88m2/sheet
Corners: 4/panel
Wirelocks*: 2-4/panel
Integral eye bolts*: 2-4/panel
MDF backing (6mm)**: 2.88m2 max per panel

* Materials only used in panels suspended from ceilings.
** MDF only used in panels requiring greater reinforcement. Quantity used is equal to the core (m2)

TRACK PROFILE*
45mm square panel end cap.

POLYESTER ACOUSTIC FILL*
Thickness: 25mm

This may include determining a certain amount of metreage needed to reduce noise levels to desired specifications, or to meet legal requirements.

WhisperBaffle panels vary in construction depending on their final application. Panels that are to be hung from ceilings consist of a PVC track profile encasing two sheets of core acoustic foam. The foam is made of thermally bonded polyester fibre specifically designed for noise reduction. The sheet of core material is porous so as to absorb sound vibration and thus reduce unwanted noise. An MDF backing is placed in the centre to stabilise and reinforce the panel. This backing also serves as the medium through which the integral eye bolts are added and the wirelocks thus added for suspension.

WhisperBaffle may also come as a simple wrapped panel which consists of the base foam with the track profile and fabric wrapped directly onto the sheet.

Each panel is wrapped tight with the chosen acoustic fabric and tucked into the appropriate groove in the track profile or adhered directly to the panel surface. 100mm of bleed is used for tucking the fabric and for proper alignment of artwork.
WhisperBaffle panels are supplied fully assembled and ready to hang, just like normal artwork.

WhisperBaffle panels are attached to the ceiling using a wirelock mechanism, with the number of wirelocks used relative to the requirements of each panel. Larger, heavier panels use more wirelocks due to the increased weight stress.

Some panels are instead held up by third-party infrastructure, such as a divider. They might even consist of a frameless wrapped panel stuck directly onto the surface using adhesive. It is a flexible option and the possibilities are varied.
There are important factors that must be considered for a smooth ceiling installation such as:
