Modern open spaces create a unique set of challenges when it comes to acoustics, particularly because many new buildings are designed with open plans, and open plenums. Fortunately, there are innovative open plenum ceiling systems on the market that can help to overcome these challenges. This course will discuss customizable acoustical solutions for open plenum design, including baffles, beams, clouds, and acoustical wall panels, which are available in a variety of materials like metal, wood, fiberglass, and felt. The course will explore the importance of acoustical design and how these open plenum ceiling systems can transform a space aesthetically while maximizing acoustics.
