The Features of Acoustic Decking
Designed to serve as a sound-absorbing ceiling as well as a structural roof deck, acoustical roof deck is identical to its standard deck counterpart, except the webs of the flutes are perforated. The perforation pattern on acoustical deck is 5/32” diameter holes staggered 3/8” on center. Structural properties are negligibly affected by the web perforations in fluted acoustic deck.
The sound absorbing elements consist of rolls of glass fiber, available at Keystar. These insulation batts are placed in the ribs between the perforated webs of the acoustic decking. The roofing contractor installs the glass fiber on the job site.
Additionally, the insulation batts field installed on top of the acoustic deck in the low flutes diminish echoing within the building. Also, perforations in the webs of this deck provide addition sound abatement.
Finally, Acoustic Decking provides a support surface for various roofing materials. Besides this benefit, the sound-absorbing traits appeal to building designs that require noise abatement. Acoustical roof deck is manufactured with perforations in the vertical ribs.
