resistant acoustical ceiling tile and panels, unit
acoustical absorbers, hangers, and suspension system
grid for installation in commercial-type work.
Adhere to UFC 1-300-02 Unified Facilities Guide
Specifications (UFGS) Format Standard when editing
this guide specification or preparing new project
specification sections. Edit this guide
specification for project specific requirements by
adding, deleting, or revising text. For bracketed
items, choose applicable items(s) or insert
appropriate information.

**************************************************************************
PART 1
GENERAL
**************************************************************************
Note: Plaster or gypsum wallboard ceilings, metal
faced or ceramic-bonded mineral fiber acoustical
ceilings should be used in lieu of mineral fiber, or
fiberglass base acoustical ceiling systems, in wet
areas such as showers and bathrooms or around
grills, in kitchens, and similar facilities where
greasy vapors are a problem. Be alert to this fact,
however, gypsum board made in other countries may
contain asbestos which, of course, is unacceptable.
Drawings should indicate the following:
a.
Location of acoustical systems.
SECTION 09 51 00
Arrangement of
Page 4
acoustical units, panels, light fixtures, and
diffusers, other penetrations and exposed suspension
grids.
b. Location of systems required to have ceiling
attenuation class (CAC).
c. Location and details of system required to have
a fire resistive rating.
d. Location and details and material of fire stops
above suspended ceilings.
e. Location and details of access panels and
maximum spacing of suspension members for concealed
grid suspension systems.
f. Location of each different color and pattern
when more than one type acoustical unit is specified
for a project. Details of special or patterned
panels if necessary to describe adequately. If more
than one system is used, key to locations by using
symbols.
g. Where acoustical ceilings are provided in
conjunction with thermal insulation beneath vented
attic spaces, careful attention should be given to
furnishing the appropriate type ceiling tile,
adequate details on the contract drawings, and to
including appropriate sections in the
specifications. Details on the drawings will cover
such features as support of insulation at
flush-mounted light fixtures, conduit, acoustical
units, suspension system components, heating and
air-conditioning units, and other utilities.
Installation of insulation over the suspension
systems, light fixtures, and other ceiling
penetrations will be coordinated with Sections
06 10 00 ROUGH CARPENTRY and 07 21 13 BOARD AND
BLOCK INSULATION, and manufacturer's literature.

**************************************************************************
NOTE: When reflected ceiling plans showing ceiling
penetrations are included in the project drawings,
it may not be necessary for the Contractor to
re-draw and submit as a shop drawing; in such cases,
delete the requirement from SD-02. Details not
applicable to the project should also be deleted.
On simple projects where manufacturer's standard
printed data are sufficient, omit this submittal
category from SD-03.
Where many different ceiling systems are used, it
may be more convenient to schedule STC ratings, fire
ratings, panel and suspension types on the drawings,
keyed to finish schedules, rather than to include
this data in the specification.

Provide sound controlling units mechanically mounted on a ceiling
suspension system for acoustical treatment. The unit size, texture,
finish, and color must be as specified. The Contractor has the option to
substitute inch-pound (I-P) Recessed Light Fixtures (RLF) for metric RLF.
If the Contractor opts to furnish I-P RLF, other ceiling elements like
acoustical ceiling tiles, air diffusers, air registers and grills, shall
also be I-P products. Coordinate the whole ceiling system with other
details, like the location of access panels and ceiling penetrations, etc.,
shown on the drawings. The Contractor is responsible for all associated
labor and materials and for the final assembly and performance of the
specified work and products if I-P products are used. The location and
extent of acoustical treatment shall be as shown on the approved detail
drawings. Submit drawings showing suspension system, method of anchoring
and fastening, details, and reflected ceiling plan. Coordinate with
paragraph RECLAMATION PROCEDURES for reclamation of mineral fiber
acoustical ceiling panels to be removed from the job site.
1.2.1
Fire Resistive Ceilings
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Certified laboratory test reports for fire
resistance rating and ceiling attenuation class
(CAC) cannot be obtained for ceiling assemblies
which are nonstandard with the manufacturer.
Therefore, where a fire resistance rating and/or
ceiling sound transmission class are necessary, do
not specify a nonstandard ceiling assembly. Refer
to data in the UL Fire Resistance Directory for
details.
For Navy projects, delete this paragraph when fire
separation is not required by UFC 3-600-01, Fire
Protection Engineering for Facilities. Where
required, rating applies to total floor-ceiling or
roof-ceiling assembly, including
mechanical-electrical elements, penetrations,
structural system, and deck. If system is required
to be fire-endurance rated, show details of recessed
fixture enclosures and other penetrations on
drawings.
**************************************************************************
Rate acoustical ceiling systems, indicated as fire resistant, for fire
endurance as specified when tested in accordance with ASTM E119. Test
suspended ceiling with a specimen [roof] [floor] assembly representative of
the indicated construction, including mechanical and electrical work within
ceiling space openings for light fixtures, and air outlets, and access
panels. Provide ceiling assembly rating for [[1] [1-1/2] [2] [3] [4] hour
[concealed grid system] [exposed grid system]] [as shown on drawings].
Provide acoustical units with a flame spread of 25 or less and smoke
development of 50 or less when tested in accordance with ASTM E84.
1.2.2
Ceiling Attenuation Class and Test
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Ensure that CAC rating chosen is coordinated
with rating of walls detailed on the drawings. It
is inappropriate to have high CAC rating for
ceilings if walls nullify acoustical benefit.
SECTION 09 51 00
Page 8
Where room partitions do not extend to floor or roof
deck above, ceiling plenum path may prevent
acoustical privacy between rooms. Where required to
provide adequate room to room sound attenuation,
entire ceiling assembly, including air terminals and
light fixtures, should have appropriate Ceiling
Attenuation Class (CAC). Any penetration of ceiling
assembly will destroy integrity of ceiling in this
regard. Verify that other specification sections
and drawings include appropriate data to ensure that
these requirements are met for air terminals and
light fixtures. For standard applications, specify
CAC range of 35 - 39. A ceiling CAC range of 40-44
is recommended for all spaces where speech privacy
is required and that are surrounded or sub-divided
by partitions which do not extend to underside of
floor or roof deck above. For classified conference
rooms, executive offices, teleconferencing rooms and
other occupancies requiring the highest degree of
speech privacy, sound attenuation requirements will
have to be achieved by other means, most likely by
high sound transmission class (STC) partition
extending to the underside of floor or roof deck
above.
**************************************************************************
Provide a ceiling system with an attenuation class (CAC) of [_____] for
[_____] [and _____ for _____] when determined in accordance with
ASTM E1414/E1414M. Provide fixture attenuators over light fixtures and
other ceiling penetrations, and provide acoustical blanket insulation
adjacent to partitions, as required to achieve the specified CAC. Provide
test ceiling continuous at the partition and assembled in the suspension
system in the same manner that the ceiling will be installed on the project.
1.2.3
Ceiling Sound Absorption
Determine the Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) in accordance with ASTM C423
Test Method.
1.2.4
Light Reflectance
Determine light reflectance factor in accordance with ASTM E1477 Test
Method.
1.2.5
Other Submittals Requirements
The following shall be submitted:
a. Manufacturer's data indicating percentage of recycle material in
acoustic ceiling tiles to verify affirmative procurement compliance.
b.
Total weight and volume quantities of acoustic ceiling tiles with
recycle material.
c. Manufacturer's catalog showing UL classification of fire-rated ceilings
giving materials, construction details, types of floor and roof
constructions to be protected, and UL design number and fire protection
time rating for each required floor or roof construction and acoustic
SECTION 09 51 00
Page 9
ceiling assembly.
d.
Reports by an independent testing laboratory attesting that acoustical
ceiling systems meet specified [fire endurance] [and] [sound
transmission] requirements. Data attesting to conformance of the
proposed system to Underwriters Laboratories requirements for the fire
endurance rating listed in UL Fire Resistance may be submitted in lieu
of test reports.
e.
Certificate attesting that the mineral based acoustical units furnished
for the project contain recycled material and showing an estimated
percent of such material.
1.3
SUBMITTALS
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Review submittal description (SD) definitions
in Section 01 33 00 SUBMITTAL PROCEDURES and edit
the following list to reflect only the submittals
required for the project.
The Guide Specification technical editors have
designated those items that require Government
approval, due to their complexity or criticality,
with a "G." Generally, other submittal items can be
reviewed by the Contractor's Quality Control
System. Only add a ā€œGā€ to an item, if the submittal
is sufficiently important or complex in context of
the project.
For submittals requiring Government approval on Army
projects, a code of up to three characters within
the submittal tags may be used following the "G"
designation to indicate the approving authority.
Codes for Army projects using the Resident
Management System (RMS) are: "AE" for
Architect-Engineer; "DO" for District Office
(Engineering Division or other organization in the
District Office); "AO" for Area Office; "RO" for
Resident Office; and "PO" for Project Office. Codes
following the "G" typically are not used for Navy,
Air Force, and NASA projects.
An "S" following a submittal item indicates that the
submittal is required for the Sustainability
Notebook to fulfill federally mandated sustainable
requirements in accordance with Section 01 33 29
SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING.
Choose the first bracketed item for Navy, Air Force
and NASA projects, or choose the second bracketed
item for Army projects.
**************************************************************************
Government approval is required for submittals with a "G" designation;
submittals not having a "G" designation are for [Contractor Quality Control

**************************************************************************
NOTE: Unit acoustical absorbers should be used in
high noise areas such as bowling alleys, industrial
areas or in other locations when recommended by an
acoustical consultant. Quantity and spacing should
be shown on the drawings.
**************************************************************************
Absorbers shall be individually mounted sound absorbing plaques composed of
glass fibers or non-asbestos mineral fibers and having a NRC range of not
less than 0.60 - 0.70 when tested in accordance with ASTM C423 and reported
as a 4 frequency average.
2.2
SUSPENSION SYSTEM
**************************************************************************
NOTE: If more than one type of acoustical unit is
required, a separate paragraph for that type unit
will be used. Each unit type will be designated
with a letter or number symbol, such as A, B, etc.
Use the same letters or numbers to key unit types to
locations listed or shown on the drawings and in
Section 09 06 90 SCHEDULES FOR PAINTING AND COATING.
Each different type of suspension system must be
shown on the drawings.
Generally, lay-in panels supported by exposed grid
suspension system provide most economical
installation and allow greatest access to space
above ceiling. Where lay-in panels are subject to
displacement by building occupants or where ceiling
must be directly attached to underside of structural
system, concealed framing system may be more
appropriate. In lobbies, auditoriums, chapels or
clubs where a monolithic appearance may be desired,
greater expense of concealed suspension system may
SECTION 09 51 00
Page 20
be justified. Downward access concealed systems
should not be specified in areas of high seismic
activity.
An intermediate-duty suspension system should be
specified when the minimum load-carrying capacity of
the main runner is 175 N per m 12 pounds per linear
foot on a simple span of 1200 mm 4 feet without the
mid-span deflection exceeding 1/360th of the span.
Intermediate-duty systems are used primarily for
ordinary commercial structures where some ceiling
loads, due to light fixtures and air diffusers are
anticipated.
A heavy-duty suspension system should be specified
when the above described minimum load-carrying
capacity is 230 N per m 16 pounds per linear foot.
Heavy-duty systems are used when ceiling loads are
greater than ordinary commercial construction. See
ASTM C635/C635M for load testing methods for metal
suspension systems for acoustical tile and lay-in
panel ceilings.
Select classification required to support ceiling
load including acoustical units, lights and other
items supported by suspension system. Light duty
should be specified for residential construction
only. Load carrying capacities based on 1200 mm (4
foot) hanger spacing:
