Acoustic Suspended Ceiling

WhisperCloud® is an acoustic hanging panel solution that suspends from ceilings to help control noise.

WhisperCloud is a tracking system used to enable tightly stretching fabric over an acoustic absorber on ceilings.

The panels are designed to provide noise control in large spaces that don’t allow for dropped ceilings or require additional sound treatment. The panels are suspended from the ceiling, providing acoustic absorption and an appealing spatial aesthetic.

The Detail

The acoustic absorbers are manufactured from thermally bonded polyester fibre with up to 80% recycled fibre content from post-consumer PET packaging such as empty drink bottles.

A range of flame retardant fabric with a modified weave is used for our art, allowing air to freely pass through, whilst maintaining printed integrity. CorfuArizona and Linen Look are some of the most popular.

There are no standard or pre-fabricated panels as we manufacture based on instructions from designers, architects or acoustic engineers.  This may include determining a certain amount of meterage needed to reduce noise levels to required specification.

Due to the increased tension that results from mid-air suspension, we use aluminium reinforcement on each panel.

WhisperCloud panels are supplied fully assembled and ready to hang, just like normal artwork.

The panels are hung from 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.

1) Ceiling material (e.g. Gyprock, brick, timber etc.)
2) Ceiling 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.
