Acoufelt’s Soften-up Ceiling System, released this year, offers effortlessly installed, slatted acoustic tiles that can be dropped into a new or previously installed 15/16” or 9/16” T-grid ceiling framework. The drop-in installation requires no special tools, and hides the ceiling grid as it creates a span of sound-absorbing beams or slats. The system achieves up to a .95 NRC value, effectively quieting any space where quiet is needed.
The ease of installing SoftenUp accommodates lighting and mechanical systems, reducing work, time, and labor costs when compared with other acoustic ceiling products. The tiles are lightweight and shipped in boxes, rather than on palettes, lowering transportation costs and waste, while eliminating the need for specialized machinery to install them.
While easy to install, adding SoftenUp to any space creates a dramatic change in both aesthetics and acoustics. The system allows the specifier a wide range of design options as it conceals the grid, creating an uninterrupted overall plane. The underside of the system defines the look, creating beams at 2” and 4” widths, each available in 1” and 3” depths. Designers can choose a sleek, modern, textural effect, or an inviting, sound-absorbing alternative to a wood beam ceiling, choosing from Acoufelt’s deep palette and printed designs.
