ASC invented a great way to take advantage of an
open web truss ceiling. Acoustic engineers often specify baffle
systems in large open spaces where the walls can’t be used
for acoustic control. Baffle systems maintain bright local ambiance
while limiting noise from across the room. Typical baffles are grommet
mounted on wires or cables and work well for informal spaces such
as gyms, pools, etc.
applied the baffle principle using an open truss ceiling as the
support system for the Panels. ASC Engineering will design an acoustic
plan based on your needs and calculate how many TrussPanels are
required. For restaurants, we want to maintain a lively, natural
sounding room ambiance while minimizing "crosstalk". A
side benefit is that the acoustics are hidden from view. People
don't even know the acoustics are there, but they certainly do notice
the improved acoustics.
The ASC TrussPanel is grooved to rest firmly on
the angled legs of the truss, making them virtually disappear, yet
improving the sound dramatically. ASC custom sizes the TrussPanel
to fit your truss ceiling perfectly. ASC also invented a tool that
enables easy installation without having to leave the ground.
