Imagine dancing underneath thousands of pumping speakers while only metres away people are working, dining or holding normal conversations with ambient background music.
Ideal for marquees, bars, restaurants, hotels and nightclubs, the Sound Ceiling is a revolutionary sound system that solves noise disturbance problems faced by entertainment venues while still delivering quality high-level sound.
The Sound Ceiling is a modular-based speaker system installed in or suspended from the ceiling above the dance floor, or any required area, that directs sound straight down to the audience where it is needed. With the Sound Ceiling, sound pressure drop-off can be heard as soon as you step outside the column of sound created, not only lending itself to the reduction of noise escaping the site but allowing zoning of areas within any venue.
With a guaranteed 10db reduction only 1-2m from the dance floor, the Sound Ceiling allows you to increase volume, improve sound quality and abolish complaints by providing high-quality sound in specific areas whilst leaving adjacent areas free from excessive noise. By using the Sound Ceiling you are able to confine the area of high-level sound and reduce the volume heard only a few metres away by up to 50%.

Sound Ceilings UK
Through plane wave technology and directional control, the Sound Ceiling reduces unwanted sound distribution, confining sound within specific areas. In numerous entertainment venues, Sound Ceilings UK has been able to reduce sound levels at the bar to approximately 84db (depending on the size of the room). In most cases, by the time the sound has reached the foyer of the venue, it can be barely heard. This is in dramatic contrast to a traditional sound system, which pumps sound towards the bar and into the foyer at levels of approximately 96db or greater.
When installing a sound ceiling, the size of the venue and dance floor is calculated to determine the number of modules required over the given area. The sound ceiling is invisible by virtue of the fact that it is positioned flush with the ceiling line and can be camouflaged with the colour of the ceiling. It offers the dancing guests high-quality, powerful sound, while allowing for those outside the dance area to have a normal conversation without shouting, and provides employees with an excellent noise at work atmosphere.
Suitable for both live and reproduced music, the Sound Ceiling guarantees a 10db noise reduction outside the venue and has enabled operators to extend operating hours and profits by meeting council noise regulations whilst improving sound quality inside the venue.

With the use of this revolutionary sound system, Sound Ceilings UK has been able to overcome noise abatement notices, noise complaints and licensing restrictions relating to sound. The sound ceiling offers an alternative to expensive soundproofing methods with a guaranteed 10dB reduction (15dB for marquees) in sound escaping any venue, allowing entertainment to prosper and leaving surrounding tenants unaffected.
