CertainTeed’s Sereno Fine Fissured High NRC/ CAC provides performance in both flexibility as a material, for application, and acoustics. With this introductionm CertainTeed Ceilings now offers an entire spectrum of fine fissured mineral fiber acoustical solutions.
“The Sereno Fine Fissured panel represents our continued commitment to making improvements in the ceilings marketplace for increased sound absorption,” says Kelly Hicks, panel product manager for CertainTeed’s ceilings business. “This high-performance ceilings panel offers a smart substitution, as it gives contractors an advantage with cleaner cutting and rabbeting for faster installation, while meeting high acoustical standards for classrooms and other spaces that require complete acoustical performance.”
Sereno Fine Fissured improves efficiency, requiring up to 20 percent fewer knife passes per cut than competitors’ standard boards and up to 37 percent fewer passes than competitive fire-rated boards. Each cut results in a smoother, cleaner finish with minimal dust. Its 100 percent non-directional fissure pattern further contributes to its quick and efficient installation process.
It has superior acoustical combination providing high in-room sound absorption with room-to-room sound blocking capabilities for privacy, making it ideal for education and office environments. With a rating of .75 NRC/40+ CAC, Sereno Fine Fissured out-performs comparable ceiling products in Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) and Ceiling Attenuation Class (CAC) and exceeds recommended acoustic ratings for classroom use.
