Form and Function

Today, building owners and occupants desire high-performing acoustical solutions with clean, elegant finishes. The ceiling is a critical surface that can manage the acoustical performance and enhance the overall aesthetic.

With USG’s combined expertise in wallboard, joint finishing, ceilings and sound performance engineering, we’ve created a new integrated system that offers the uninterrupted look of drywall with the high-performance acoustics of traditional lay-in ceiling panels. Key features include:

  • NRC .70 and CAC 44
  • LR .85, from the spray-applied fine texture finish
  • Class A rated
  • Low VOC-emitting material
  • Meets or exceeds minimum ceiling performance requirements for traditional acoustical ceilings
  • Ideal for high-end applications, including lobbies, atriums, executive/board rooms, museums — or other spaces with multiple hard surfaces

Installation

The USG Ensemble™ Monolithic Acoustical Ceiling System is constructed using methods similar to conventional drywall installation and finishing techniques, and is installed by USG certified contractors.

How It Works

USG Sheetrock® Brand Ensemble™ panels are highly engineered gypsum panels specially modified to allow the ceiling to both absorb and block sound energy. The joints are finished using USG Sheetrock® Brand All Purpose Joint Compound for embedding USG Sheetrock® Brand Paper Joint Tape, and USG Sheetrock® Brand Plus 3® Joint Compound for joint finishing. USG Ensemble™ Spray-Applied Finish is installed as the final surface and is acoustically transparent, allowing sound energy to pass through the perforations into the plenum where it is absorbed by the USG Ensemble™ High-NRC Backer Panels. All system components are designed to work together so that NRC and CAC performance is optimized.
