Why Should You Use USG Frost High-NRC CAC Acoustical Panels?
USG Frost High-NRC CAC Acoustical Panels are designed to control and suppress the sound that reverberates in the room by preventing sound waves from bouncing off the ceiling, reducing flutter echoes and absorbing sound better. In the past, acoustical ceiling panels were not as popular as they are nowadays because they were merely designed to quiet individual spaces and they came in primary colors that were not pleasing to the eye.
Today, acoustical ceiling panels are not only design-friendly; they are also more readily available in many several colors and a wide range of vibrant colors. In fact, you can mix and match these to achieve beautiful spaces and still produce the highest level of acoustics and the best sound. On the other hand, if you don’t like plain panels and want to be more creative, you can buy and install custom acoustic panels. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, many eco-friendly acoustical panels are made from recycled materials.

USG Frost High-NRC CAC Acoustical Panels are biobased products that contain a significant amount of renewable raw materials. It is imperative if an increase in CO2 emission and the depletion of non-renewable resources. Therefore, these products work on developing a more sustainable economy based on biobased materials. Besides transforming production of acoustical panels and other products, industrial biotechnology also aids in reducing energy use, improving bottom lines and reducing environmental impact.
On the other hand, consumers also prefer ‘green products’ that are made from renewable sources because they have proven to be an economic preference and environmentally sound choice. Production of acoustical panels using biotechnology can significantly cut both greenhouse gas emissions and petroleum use.
USDA certification confirms that USG Frost High-NRC CAC Acoustical Panels comply with USDA organic certification requirements.
