More about this product

Decoustics Clean-Air Claro® is a coated finish that is specifically formulated to provide acoustical transparency and exhibits a very white flat painted gypsum board/plaster appearance. When applied to both the face and edges, Clean-Air Claro® acoustical panels attain Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) values of up to 0.9, and thus provide excellent sound absorption. The finish is suitable for flat, shaped and two-dimensional pre-curved ceiling and wall panels above head height.

Technical Features

  • Virtually no Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions detected
  • No-Added Urea Formaldehyde (NAUF) components (ASTM 5116)
  • Highest Class A fire rating for composite product (ASTM E84)
  • Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.9
  • Clean-Air Claro® Standard White (CSW-100) achieves up to 94% light reflectance
  • Certification for High Seismicity

Customization Capabilities

Decoustics offers a full suite of project management services to deliver ultimate design flexibility. Clean-Air Claro® stipple textured acoustical ceiling and wall panels are custom-engineered to a wide range of shapes and sizes: panels can be pre-curved and custom engineered to attain custom designs. Cut outs, different thicknesses and add-on elements are also available.

Resembling the classic appearance of drywall or plaster, Clean-Air Claro® panels come in Standard White (CSW-100) acoustically transparent finish and can be matched to any paint chip to meet specific design requirements. Decoustics has the capability to custom color match to a wide range of paint chips, and also offers Metallo Silver or Copper finishes to mimic the look of a metal surface.

Suspension systems

For added design flexibility, Clean-Air Claro® panels can be integrated into Decoustics' suspension and mounting systems, including Ceilencio® system. Customizable Ceilencio® grid utilizes a unique torsion spring mechanism which permits individual panels to be "hinged" down for easy access to mechanical and electrical services. Five other systems are also available:
