Office ceiling tiles, acoustic panels, grid and suspended ceiling systems come together to provide a complete solution for modern workplaces that both inspire and perform. With more than 90 percent of an organization's operating costs linked to employee efficiency, office ceiling systems can have a positive effect on the bottom line.
Effective ceiling designs for offices include optimizing their acoustics, enhancing their interior design and appearance, supporting their sustainability and wellness, and contributing to their employees’ accuracy, wellness and job satisfaction.
Selecting ceiling materials for an office matter for every person on every floor and in every room – from an open office floor plan to enclosed private offices, from the front lobby to the back hallways and corridors, from the kitchen to the restrooms, from the conference rooms to the executive suites.
Sustainable office design and worker wellbeing
Sustainable office design is a balanced, holistic approach to creating spaces that are healthy, safe and resilient not only for those working inside them but also for the surrounding community, the planet and the generations to come. Seeking to attain the benefits of environmental and economic sustainability, many office buildings are pursuing such market-driven guidelines as the LEED® Green Rating System and The WELL™ Building Standard.
These sustainable guidelines and standards include criteria addressing numerous aspects and attributes. As examples: materials are reviewed for their ingredients, recycled content and sourcing to their longevity and safe disposal/re-use. Energy-efficient building performance is evaluated with consideration of such factors as a ceiling system’s light reflectance to maximize natural daylight and to reduce the use of electric lighting and associated costs and emissions.
Beyond office ceiling materials’ contribution to the built environment, these products also can have a positive impact on employees’ wellness.
