  • Bafl-Sorb™ - Sound Absorbing Ceiling Baffles

    IAC  Bafl-Sorb™ sound absorbing ceiling baffles are a very cost-effective way to reduce reverberation time and eliminate sound reflections from the ceiling in any environment resulting in dramatic improvements in overall acoustics. IAC offers a complete line of Bafl-Sorb Sound Absorbing Ceiling Baffles to treat any space that are suitable for industrial, commercial and institutional applications.  By eliminating built up sound due to noise reflections, overall sound exposure (TWA) can be dramatically reduced!  Installing absorptive ceiling baffles is an easy, economical way to create a safer and more productive workspace. 

    Baffles can be installed in rows, egg-crate grid or other patterns for optimal distribution and appearance. We offer a wide variety of styles, materials, colors and sizes to meet just about any desired performance, budget and interior design.  Most styles meet ASTM-E84 Class I fire ratings.

  • Installation Guidelines & Accessories

    IAC Bafl-Sorb baffles install quickly and easily.  You can arrange the baffles in almost any pattern without compromising the acoustical performance so long as the baffles are evenly disbursed throughout the area to be treated, generally in a density one baffle for every 10 to 15 square feet of ceiling area.  The most common arrangements are either a grid or “egg-crate” pattern, or simply a straight row pattern.  Typically, baffles are installed above any existing lighting and sprinkler systems by simply stringing non-stretch galvanized steel aircraft cables perpendicular to your ceiling support bar joists, trusses, or beams using a series of turnbuckles, clips and hooks (all available from IAC).  The cable is fastened taught and the baffles are suspended from the cable using the included hanging wires attached to the grommets in the baffles.

    Installation Hardware

    IAC also offers all the hardware and tools you will need to install your Bafl-Sorb system.  Accessory Items include non-stretch aircraft cable, connector sleeves and crimping tool, turnbuckles, beam clamps, etc. Your IAC Sales Engineer is ready to help you sort through all the details of your unique situation.
