300C - Linear Plank Ceilings / Hunter Douglas Contract

Ceilings have the power to increase design potential for architects by defining, maximizing and even dramatizing interior space. For decades, Hunter Douglas has engineered its ceiling systems for design versatility, as well as ease-of-installation, with industry-leading sizes, options, and colors, as well as an exclusive universal carrier system that lets architects mix and match widths and panel depths.

One of the most versatile, consistent ceilings in the industry, 300C metal panels, creates a distinct, smooth look for any interior. These panels offer a subtle, long span design featuring a butt-joint, “bevel edge” that moderates panel-to-panel connections for an orderly, finished design. Hunter Douglas experience in designing and manufacturing ceilings is shown in every detail of their products.

Perforation Patterns / Acoustics

Sound Absorption

In order to improve interior sound control, the metal ceiling panels can be perforated and also fitted with non-woven acoustic tissue or an acoustical pad. Two different perforations are available: The diameter of the holes in mini perforated panels is .059″ (1.5mm) in a .118″ (3mm) triangular pattern; the apertures represent 23% of the perforated area. The diameter of the holes in standard perforated panels is .078″ (2mm) in a .196″ (5mm) triangular pattern; the apertures represent approx. 15% of the perforated area. Fiberglass encapsulated acoustic pads can be used to achieve acoustic absorption. Also non-woven acoustic textile is available which is adhered to inside the panels automatically during production.

Sound Absorption (NRC) Summary*



*Acoustical Tests performed in accordance with ASTM C423 and ASTM E795, in a type E400 mounting.
