Airport passengers find their way with the help of decorative ceiling panels

The ceiling panels, from CertainTeed Ceilings, help with wayfinding, noise mitigation, and help with the overall aesthetics of the airport’s design.

CertainTeed Ceilings

The Calgary International Airport needed a modular ceiling to assist with wayfinding and to mitigate noise for the 13 million passengers that pass through the facility each year. More than 200,000 sf of Decoustics wood panel ceilings were used throughout the airport in conjunction with perforated metal ceiling panels.

The wood panels are hung from a suspension system that gives the illusion of floating in air, which ties in with the open and airy design theme for the airport. The bright finish of the panels creates juxtaposition with the matte finish of the wood.

For acoustics, Sand Micro mineral fiber ceiling panels and Symphony ƒ fiberglass ceiling panels were installed throughout the terminal. Both products provide differing acoustic performance with a consistent visual, allowing the design team to mix and match the products based on specific needs.
