pinta acoustic, a manufacturer of wall panels, ceiling tiles and acoustical materials, announced that its SQUARELINE Metal Ceiling Tiles were installed at the new National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia.
The ceiling tiles are made of galvanized powder-coated steel, which comprises 35%-55% of recycled material. They are available in three mesh patterns such as Standard, Medium and Ultra and in sizes measuring 24x24”, 24x48” and 48X48”. pinta acoustic offers the tiles in sleek white, black and chrome metal with optional acoustical backers. The tiles have a Class 1 fire rating.
The SQUARELINE Metal Ceiling Tiles were deployed in a five-story open atrium and on top of the elevator vestibule areas in the museum. To achieve a 70% open rate, the tiles were stretched. This feature allowed the installation of sprinkler heads above the tiles. Concealed Z-channel rows keep the tiles in place that appear to be floating.
