Nothing says “summer” quite like swimming. Now, for those who prefer a quiet, leisurely swim indoors, a new stretch ceiling system made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is available designed to absorb unwanted noise.

Manufactured by ceiling specialist Newmat USA, the NewAcoustic stretch ceiling system consists of a flexible PVC membrane cut to order and stretched onto a PVC or aluminum extruded rail with a semi-rigid perimeter harpoon pre-welded on the membrane.

The maximum size for each ceiling section is 250 square feet to 1,250 square feet, depending on the selected color and finish. Large projects may require a divider or double rail to create manageable-sized sections.

The NewAcoustic system provides a noise-reduction coefficient from 0.5 to 1.0, a range that can be customized depending on a selected acoustical core (if desired) and the mounting type.
