Sabine per unit is preferred to characterise the absorption provided by an individual ‘space absorber’. Existing suspended ceilings do not always meet the stringent acoustical requirements set by such applications as call centres. When relocating a business to new premises or reconfigurating an existing office plan to suit new organisational requirements. in combination with today's office interior design trends with extensive use of glass partitions. retail outlets • Corridors / lobbies Factors that may affect the installed acoustical performance relative to the published results are: • Size of Canopies • Number of Canopies and their layout • Suspension distance below a finished ceiling • Location and horizontal overlap of Canopy • Ceiling tile selection (for Axiom Canopies) Did YOU KNOW.

Office space planning is a balance between optimising the area available and producing a comfortable and productive working environment. WHAT IS "RETROFIT"? An acoustical retrofit consists of fine tuning the acoustical performance of an existing space to meet the end users' desired levels of intelligibility. Renovation and "retrofit" solutions Recycling new ceiling tiles. retrofitting an existing ceiling with design focussed lightweight acoustical The role of Island Ceilings in building interiors absorbers or canopies. An acoustical retrofit will therefore consider: • changing existing surface materials.6 m 96. Secondly it can improve the acoustic performance of the ceiling by using more modern ceiling products.

One of ways to renovate a space is through the renewal of a ceiling. higher comfort levels and an increase in occupant productivity. 14 Latest information available on our website 15 . open plan offices. Whether it is to upgrade the office space to improve the likelihood of letting it. Canopies can provide greater sound absorption than a continuous ceiling of the same visible surface area because sound can be absorbed on both the front and the back surfaces. renewing the ceiling will make a big difference. Armstrong will collect waste ceiling tiles from site and transport them back to the nearest Armstrong manufacturing location and sort and reuse them in the manufacture of Example of acoustical treatment in an empty space: 3 2. Armstrong has a scheme to recycle the waste ceiling tiles created when a renovation project is undertaken. Canopies can provide greater sound absorption than a traditional wall to wall ceiling of the same visible surface area because the sound is absorbed from both the front and back surfaces of the Canopy. Treating sound directly above workstations. Armstrong recommends that acoustical fine tuning be considered as early as possible in the design scheme. Under challenging architectural and acoustical configurations. ■F  unctionality: act as light reflectors to minimise energy consumption. •  complementing the existing room configuration with discontinuous ceiling solutions (Canopy range).

There are many other details of the test construction that must be understood and adhered to.FIRE REAcTION TO FIRE The harmonisation of technical standards within Europe. These include: •  main runner and hanger centres •  the type of top fixings and how the hangers are attached to them •  the minimum depth of the ceiling void •  what % of the floor design load is tested •  whether ceiling tile hold-down clips were used. black tissue faced acoustic pad 22 Latest information available on our website 23 . Abridged versions must be regarded as undesirable as they will not show the full test details and construction. This will usually require a test report from the fitting manufacturer or an assessment issued by the fire authorities. the current version of the assessment document 173816 and the relevant base test report should always be consulted prior to the installation of a floor construction to be protected by an Armstrong ceiling system. the Euroclass classification is one of the mandatory elements on the CE mark for suspended ceiling tiles and grids. As products may be modified or retested it is essential that their validity is always checked prior to installation. These new reaction to fire classifications. and Armstrong test many ceiling tiles for their structural fire performance. The ‘Euroclasses’ replace the old national fire reaction ratings for showing the performance of ceilings in order to meet the Construction Products Directive and national building regulation requirements for internal linings. whether there is any active methods of fire protection (sprinklers etc) and the type of construction to be protected (steel beams. Each member state then sets the performance level required for different areas and building types within their own building regulations. This document is based on a large number of fire tests conducted on various Armstrong ceiling tile and grid types. These details must be included in the installation if the tested performance is to be realised and they should be taken into account when writing specifications for ceilings intended to provide structural fire protection. and location within. but always on Armstrong Trulok grid.

As reaction to fire is one of the essential safety requirements identified for suspended ceilings. Untested products may be assessed by reference to the product attributes and comparison to similar tested products. Without these documents the designer or installer may assume an everlasting responsibility for the fire safety of the building and occupants. there is a requirement for a building’s structure to be protected from fire. This is primarily for the structure to remain stable during a fire to allow the occupants to escape and also to enable fire fighters to work without threat of the building’s collapse.

CE MARKING ■ What is it ? CE stands for Conformité Européenne. To meet these requirements Armstrong offer a wide range of standard products suitable for installation in conditions of up to 95% and 99% relative humidity. Armstrong products have been tested to the harmonised European fire reaction standards and meet the minimum performance criteria. within a space. In this way the air flow supply volume to the room can be controlled and balanced dependent upon the pressure differential and the air change requirements.Definition of technical performance icons Fire reaction National Building Regulations (where applicable) require that buildings meet the appropriate Euroclass fire reaction performance depending upon the area of application. provided by the suspended ceiling. Specific tiles can be selected as open (active). The CE mark is a products “passport” for entry into the EEA (European Economic Area) and indicates that the product complies with the requirements of the applicable European Directive. Armstrong conducts extensive tests of air leakage on a wide range of its products. use and as specified in national building regulations. Air Quality Armstrong offer a number of specific tile and grid solutions to limit the number of airborne particles in a clean room environment. ■ What does this mean? This standard identifies how the ceiling components must be tested against the essential requirements to identify a performance classification.

All products can at least be cleaned with a dry cloth or vacuum cleaner. this is being replaced by the Construction Products Regulations (305/2011/EU) which will come into full force on 1st July 2013. Rain Noise Is the intensity of sound (LIA) generated by rainfall on building elements. Air Leakage The cavity above a suspended ceiling may be used as part of the mechanical air distribution system. as well as specialist products which excel in extreme conditions of up to 100% relative humidity. With this arrangement the air pressure in the plenum is always positive in comparison to the pressure in the room below. to escape the egress of pathogens the room may be kept at a lower pressure relative to the surrounding areas. as well as helping to reduce excessive electrical energy consumption. dictates that buildings should be as energy efficient as is compatible with their function. The light reflectance values indicated on each product data page are as determined by these tests. and the air pressure in the plenum will be either positive or negative in comparison to the pressure in the room below.
