Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss how the acoustical aspects of ceiling baffles contribute to the well-being of occupants.
  2. Describe new design trends that create problems with sound reverberation, negatively impacting occupant comfort.
  3. Explain how ceiling baffles are manufactured and the attributes that contribute to lower costs, shorter lead times, and better sustainability.
  4. List how ceiling baffle systems integrate with other indoor environmental quality (IEQ) elements, contributing to occupant health and safety.
