You know home entertainment has gone completely high tech when home theater ceiling tiles have become common in the average living room. It is all about a very technical thing called acoustic isolation, which basically means reducing the transmission of sound out of the room and containing it within the room for enhancement of sound quality.
Acoustic isolation also means that other members of the house are not afflicted with the crash, boom, bang of your favorite rock band DVD or special effects-rich movie. The purpose of home theater ceiling tiles is to reduce the sound reverberation and absorb the sound within the room.
Home theater ceiling tiles are graded according to their acoustic qualities. They are constructed of high-density glass wool, are fully encapsulated and feature a painted finish. There is a range of finishes, sizes and edge details so any home theater will be greatly enhanced, not just acoustically but aesthetically with the addition of ceiling tiles.
In addition to their acoustic qualities, home theater ceiling tiles possess other attributes as well, such as moisture resistance, cleanability, light efficiency, fire safety and suitability to indoor climate. Many clients favor suspended ceiling applications.
The grid system, manufactured in galvanized steel, can be installed so that it is concealed from view and the individual panels can easily be demounted if the room purpose alters or if the homeowner relocates and wishes to remove the ceiling tiles.
Home theater ceiling tiles can be installed in existing or new homes. They are quick to install and lightweight, so they will not create intolerable loads on the ceiling.
Turn your sound system up as loud as you like when your home theater ceiling tiles are installed. Audio-visual equipment is meant to remain under five decibels above background noise levels but even if you pump up the volume in your home theater, your ceiling tiles will keep your environment within approved guidelines. The neighbors will not complain and you can enjoy your movie or Superbowl party without worrying that the boys in blue will be around to spoil your fun.
There is one drawback, however. Just as your inground swimming pool attracted all your friends, neighbors and family members to your home for the greater part of the summer, your home theater ceiling tiles will bring them all back again for the remainder of the year to enjoy the high quality sound and the cinematic ambience of your entertainment room.
