Dampen Sound with Hanging Acoustics

If you have a large room or open space that hasn't been treated acoustically, your office may be struggling to stay focused. Conversations bounce around, phones ring, and voices carry; so it's necessary to put something in place that helps reduce the amount of ambient and reflected sound. Give your employees some of their focus back by covering your ceiling with Rectangular Acoustic Ceiling Clouds.

These 1.2" thick clouds are constructed from two UPLIFT Desk acoustic panels, so they're stout and firm; like our other UPLIFT Acoustics, they do an excellent job at dampening sound and decreasing echo. Even so, they're lightweight and can hang from any ceiling, no problem. In addition, the added thickness makes for an attractive side profile and provides another sound-dampening surface: all six sides of this panel capture noise.

To top it off, these panels are also friendly to the environment, consisting of polyester fiberboard made from 50% recycled material.

Sound Reduction and Design Flair

With a noise reduction coefficient of 0.86 (or possibly greater), the Rectangular Acoustic Ceiling Cloud can have an impressive impact on your space (and your employees' ability to focus). That number means 86% of the sound that reaches the clouds is absorbed from the room.

Hang the panels in any arrangement you like—they are meant to be seen from all angles and serve just as well in a single-level space as they do in an atrium. And since they're available in five sizes, you can create as many configurations as you can think of. These panels were made to complement the Circular Acoustic Ceiling Cloud and the 3D Acoustic Ceiling Waffle Cloud, so you can mix and match them for a more dynamic aesthetic.

Speaking of mixing and matching, let's talk about colors. These hanging clouds are made by combining two of our acoustic privacy panels, so you can choose from the same five colors you may be using on your desks or walls, to coordinate your room design. Contact us for color swatches.

Simple Installation at any Length

Installation is quick and easy. Once you decide what your panel configuration should look like in your space—including how far down each one should hang—you're ready to go. Just attach the four clips to the ceiling. You have over 8' of cable, and the cable attachment clips are easily length adjustable, so you can choose to stagger your arrangement or line it up exactly.

These panels have a fire safety rating of Euro Class B and have been tested according to ASTM E84-08 (Class A).

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What sizes do these panels come in?

    Because the Rectangular Acoustic Ceiling Clouds are made from our Acoustic Privacy Panels for Desks, they're available in all of the same sizes. They're all 22" H and 1.2" thick, but you can choose from these widths: 15.5", 40", 52", 64", and 72".

  2. Do I have color choices?

    You have five color options: light gray, dark gray, lagoon blue, green, and brown. These are the same colors featured on our desktop privacy panels and several of our acoustic treatments, so you can match or coordinate your design between them. Please contact us for color swatches.

  3. What heights can I hang the panels at?

    The mounting clips are length-adjustable and you have 8.2' (2.5 m) of cable to work with, so you can set your own panel height.

  4. How much sound will this absorb?

    These panels are 1.2" (30mm) thick, so they effectively have six different surfaces that can catch sound and absorb it. With a noise reduction coefficient of 0.86 (or possibly greater), they will eliminate 86% of all sound that hits them.

  5. Does this go with other UPLIFT Desk acoustic products?

    In addition to the desktop acoustic privacy panels, room partitions, and rectangular wall-mounted acoustics, these clouds are meant to coordinate with the Circular Acoustic Ceiling Cloud and the 3D Acoustic Ceiling Waffle Cloud. Try putting all three together in your space to add design variety.

  6. How many ceiling clouds should I purchase for my space?

    A good rule of thumb for cloud placement is 30-60% of the square footage and have the panels closer to the sound source than farther away. For example, a cloud positioned lower to the ground will absorb more sound than one positioned closer to the ceiling. Keep in mind that sound absorption is best optimized checkerboard patterns or rows of panels are spaced at a minimum of 24" apart.
