An MF (Metal Furring) ceiling system is a suspended metal frame, and it lets you fix plasterboard sheets directly to it for a smooth and seamless finish. You can pair it with acoustic fittings, and it will provide you with acoustic insulation. There are several different sound insulating solutions that help reduce sound from travelling through your ceiling.
Acoustic Metal Furring System
You can use an MF ceiling system to handle any acoustic issues. When you install this type of ceiling, you can pair acoustic fixings with plasterboard on a suspended metal frame. This gives you high performance acoustic insulation, and it helps reduce noise. You can often find a premade kit that comes with everything you need to build this type of ceiling.
Ceiling Sound Insulation
One of the best ways to reduce the amount of sound that travels through your ceiling is to use sound insulating solutions. You start with an MF ceiling system, and then you can add different solutions to create the insulation you need.
You can add ceiling tiles to office space, education facilities, or healthcare settings, and they are more common in multi-story buildings. They offer a minimalist yet effective way of reducing the sound that can travel through ceilings. Ceiling tiles provide a simple and clean design, and they work well on a suspended ceiling system.
Another way to insulate sound is with downlight covers. They are used to cover downlights and hold their position. They are able to prevent heat from escaping in case of a fire. You can get downlight covers that are made from sound insulating material, and they are both great acoustically and in terms of safety. This is a great multi-purpose solution for a space that has downlights.
Sound Insulating Polypads
This type of sound insulation gives you fibre-free thermal insulation, and they can effectively insulate sound. They help prevent it from travelling through ceiling voids. It is an insulation quilt that is cut into pieces and sealed in bags to seal the fibres without reducing the thermal benefits of the quilt. You can use this type of sound insulation in manufacturing facilities, food prep areas, and more.
When you use an MF ceiling system, you have options for sound insulation. There are different solutions that easily affix to the plasterboard or the light fixtures, and it helps to reduce sound that travels through the ceiling. This gives greater confidentiality for those using the rooms, and it improves the sound quality.
