Why use
OPTIMA baffles?
Armstrong Optima Baffles are engineered acoustical
products with an all-round scrim facing, finished with a new,
factory applied, high white paint finish giving exceptional levels
of acoustic performance and light reflectance.
Ideal for noisy environments where traditional acoustic ceilings
are either not possible for structural design reasons, or cannot
provide the high level of performance required, Optima
Baffles provide an economic solution with an attractive
linear visual to enhance modern building interiors.
Available off-the-shelf in standard white or in bespoke colours
and sizes to match individual project requirements, they are
ready to fit and come complete with pre-screwed spiral
anchors, making them the easiest and quickest baffle
solution around.

Absorption
Armstrong Optima Baffles can significantly reduce background noise levels and reverberation times within spaces
and enhance speech intelligibility. They provide absorption on all surfaces of the product either as a ‘planar’ absorber
( w), when installed as a linear array; or as a ‘discrete’ absorber (EAA) when installed as separate decorative elements.

Typical Applications
Typically used to provide high levels of acoustic absorption in schools, offices, leisure centres, transport hubs, etc.
Ideal for use in low energy buildings utilising high thermal mass construction techniques, naturally lit areas with
skylights, locations where normal suspended grid fixing is not possible, and in lower profile applications requiring
a more economical solution.
