Soundproof Your Ceilings
Are you not the biggest fan of the acoustics throughout your home?
Stretch fabric ceilings have become increasingly popular in today’s residential market; however, one specific type has stood out among the others as a fan favorite, acoustic stretch ceilings.
Continuous background noise in our everyday lives can cause not only an annoyance but also potentially ear strain or worse and stretch fabric can be a simple acoustical solution.
What are Acoustic Stretch Ceilings?
Acoustic stretch ceilings are practically the same as the traditional stretch fabrics we’re used to seeing, but the materials are slightly different. Acoustic ceilings are different in that they are perforated throughout to allow for the perfect absorption of sound vibrations.
The perforations in acoustic stretch ceilings not only prevent sound waves from passing through them but also stop them in the tracks and keep them from spreading further.
Pros of Acoustic Stretch Ceilings in Homes
With acoustic stretch ceilings, you can take your room acoustics to the next level. The pros of acoustic stretch ceilings include their:
- Modern appearance
Stretch fabrics can be digitally printed with any design you desire to match your home’s aesthetic.

- Ease of care
Stretch fabric ceilings are simple to clean. Simply take a rag and spot clean with soap and water as needed.
Things to Consider
The extent of your room’s acoustic stretch ceiling will depend on:
- The thickness and type of fabric being used
- The thickness and the material of the soundproofing or sound-absorbing fabric
- The diameter of the holes in the perforated membrane
- The distance between the perforations
- The distance between the ceiling and the stretch fabric
Perhaps the most important aspect when considering an acoustic stretch ceiling is your acoustic objective. These ceilings can be useful in resisting both the penetration of external noise into the room (soundproofing) as well as reducing the acoustic pressure created by the sound waves inside the room (reducing indoor noise).
