I find acoustic ceilings ugly and boring. Are there no other solutions you can replace them with?

Acoustic ceilings are generally used to absorb sound energy in order to create a better acoustic environment in the room. There are of course lots of different solutions that absorb sound, e.g. upholstered furniture, screens, wall decorations, carpets, etc. So there are certainly a number of possibilities for avoiding boring acoustic ceilings. However, we would like to come with an alternative comment, as we have created an acoustic ceiling that does not look like an acoustic ceiling, where you as a customer should have full control over what the ceiling looks like. Take an extra look at Even Better before

My building has a preservation order. Can I install seamless acoustic ceilings?

If the building is protected, changes in appearance and choice of materials must be made in consultation with the authorities/organisations concerned. Some brands of seamless acoustic ceilings have wide customization options, which increases the opportunity for finding an approved solution. Often, a physical sample is needed as a reference when developing a customer-specific surface texture. Photos are of course helpful, but are usually not enough. We also recommend that you construct a test installation so that you can ensure that the solution meets the set requirements, something which can often be difficult to determine simply by looking at a small

Which environments are suitable or unsuitable for installing seamless acoustic ceilings?

Seamless acoustic ceilings are generally intended for indoor environments with controlled temperature and humidity. Make sure that the ceiling can withstand the indoor environment in which the ceiling is to be installed. Dusty environments and premises where there is the expectation of washing ceilings and wall surfaces with water and detergents are less suitable environments for most seamless acoustic systems.

How does a seamless acoustic ceiling work?

There are a few different technologies here, but in very general terms, the ceiling works by converting sound energy into heat. The technology for achieving this varies at different sound frequencies. Few if any sound absorbers are able to absorb sound equally well across the entire audible sound spectrum and it is usually easier to absorb sounds with higher frequencies than with lower frequencies. The best effect is thus achieved by combining different types of absorbents.

Why do you need to be certified to install ceilings and how do you become a certified installer?

Since virtually all seamless acoustic ceilings are built on site, the certification of installers is our way of ensuring that the quality of the ceiling installed is similar to that shown in the images and samples. Certification can be done in slightly different ways, but normally you attend a training course at the supplier’s premises to acquire the necessary knowledge.

What should you bear in mind when procuring a contract for seamless acoustic ceilings?

Actually, a very big and wide-ranging question that is difficult to answer briefly, but please contact us and we will be happy to provide more extensive advice.

How do you maintain a seamless acoustic ceiling?

Ceilings generally require very little maintenance as the surface is well protected from mechanical damage. Normally the biggest problems come from dirt and dust circulated by air currents from the ventilation systems. Loose particles such as dust and dirt are most easily removed by vacuuming the surface with a soft nozzle. More stubborn stains can be removed with a special type of stain-removing sponge. As a rule, you cannot wash the surface with detergent or rub off stains and dirt with a cloth or ordinary sponge. The earlier you act, the better the result will usually be. Therefore, expect a

Which scaffolding type should you use?

Good access is important in order to achieve a satisfactory end result, while at the same time there are major cost differences between full platforms and the various types of mobile solution. The choice of system will also play a major role here, as total installation times vary greatly. Generally speaking, the more demanding a surface structure you choose, the greater the scaffolding requirements will be. Feel free to contact us for help and advice when choosing scaffolding for your project.

How long does it take to install a seamless acoustic ceiling?

Seamless acoustic ceilings often consist of several layers that need to be dried before the next layer can be applied. The total installation time can therefore vary greatly from project to project, depending on how large the areas are, how these are arranged in relation to each other, your manning levels and also the type of system you choose to use. With an Even Better system, an installation of 100 m2 takes a total of 8-9 days, while the same area can be installed in 2 days when Straight Up is chosen. Most makes on the market land somewhere between
