Decoustics has earned a reputation of continuously delivering high performing, innovative architectural ceiling and wall products that exceed clients’ expectations. Striving to deliver the best product on the market we invest many resources into research and development. All of our products are subjected to rigorous testing to ensure industry standards are met or surpassed, as well as being backed by our excellent customer service practices. Amongst other great benefits which vary by each individual product, part of the DNA of ALL of our products are the main 6 Pillars:
High-level noise levels have been scientifically proven to pose adverse effects on persons’ physical and mental health. Today noise control is a major factor in the planning process and architects, interior designers and acoustical engineers are searching for creative ways to eliminate or greatly reduce noise levels. The challenge lies in attaining desired sound levels while simultaneously maintaining or enhancing the visual environment.
Decoustics has been perfecting the art of decorative acoustical solutions and the science of noise mitigation for over 40 years. Our range of custom products delivers exceptional acoustical performance reaching industry’s top Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) levels while combining both the art and science of acoustics.
Fire safety design of the building is crucial to minimize consequences of a fire by preventing injury to people and limiting damage to surfaces and structures. Residential and commercial codes for safe construction vary according to state, type of room and building where they are to be installed. The general requirements for suspended ceilings - and they should be regarded as compulsory in all premises - are that ceilings make only a negligible contribution to the fire development and to the production of smoke and they must not break and collapse during the early stages of the fire when evacuation and rescue operations can still be carried out.
Human safety is a subject that we take very seriously and that is why Decoustics’ products achieve Class A fire rating for a fully finished product in accordance with ASTM E84 and CAN/ULC S102. We test our products not as individual components, but as a composite: fully finished and assembled product. This test result guarantees the lowest level of flame spread in case of an emergency, making our products a safe and reliable choice for all applications.
With over 40 years of knowledge, research and innovation we offer a world of possibilities when it comes to decorative acoustical treatments for interior finishes. Like architecture itself, Decoustics is the product of science and art working together. Engineering harnessed to meet the demands of creativity. Ceiling solutions designed to transcend the predictable, ignore the ordinary, and assume the shape of imagination.
Realizing a complex design intent while retaining functionality can be a challenging task. We deliver both through full service project management and top of the line products. Create freely and experiment with materials, colors, shapes and sizes. All of our products are fully engineered for a precise fit and delivered on-site ready for installation.
Ease, speed and accuracy of installation as well as access to the plenum for maintenance and repairs thereafter are important aspects to be considered when choosing the right ceiling system for the space. We offer a range of custom suspension and mounting options to best suit your project objectives.
For added flexibility in your design most of our products can be integrated into our proprietary Ceilencio® ceiling suspension system. Ceilencio® is a concealed extrusion grid that allows for geometrical and radial shapes, multi-level ceiling construction and integrated LEDs that lock onto the grid itself. It is customizable, fully-engineered and 100% downwardly accessible through the use of a unique torsion spring mechanism permitting individual panels to be "hinged" down for easy access to the plenum without the need to take them off the grid, thus preventing potential damage and soiling. When maintenance is complete, guiding fins on the extrusions lock panels perfectly into place and ensure meticulous alignment throughout the entire area of the ceiling.
Additionally, this system is certified for high seismicity in accordance with test protocol of ICC-ES AC-156 and is a dependable choice for regions with frequent earthquake activity.
With a growing demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly products, we strive to continually improve our materials and processes to use fewer resources and generate less waste. Our ceiling and wall products are responsibly sourced, constructed with high post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content, achieve energy savings with light reflectance products, and use natural or LED lighting with our translucent products amongst other benefits. We incorporate sustainability at every step from the product’s raw material content to how it is handled through manufacturing and shipping, as well as through the product life cycle.
In collaboration with accredited bodies we offer a number of certifications that vary from product to product, with a bottom line of delivering value-added solutions for LEED accreditation and green building objectives.
Ensuring the health, safety, and wellness of occupants should be a high priority when designing an interior, especially when selecting materials that may contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), such as Urea Formaldehyde which is a known carcinogen. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), VOCs cause eye, nose, and throat irritation, frequent headaches, nausea, and can also damage the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system. Indoors the VOC concentration is up to ten times higher than outdoors and is proven to cause short and long-term negative impact on the human health.
Exploring numerous options Decoustics has come up with a way to deliver safe products that are manufactured with No Added Urea Formaldehyde (NAUF), discharge minimal VOCs and enhance indoor environmental quality. Rest assured the finished products you are receiving from us hold human health to a higher standard and are the top products on the market today.
