About the Course
“Suspended Wood Ceilings: Design to Delivery” presents the key factors that inform and influence the specification of a suspended wood ceiling.
- Recognize the benefits of wood ceiling suspended by t-bar: technical requirements for specifying this common assembly type in order to provide acoustic and environmental performance and durability along with desired aesthetics.
- Discuss the different types of materials that go into suspended wood ceilings: evaluating the types of solid wood, engineered wood, veneers, finishes and other related materials for their acoustic, environmental, and fire safety performance and their long term durability.
- Identify critical design and functional considerations when designing, specifying and installing wood ceilings, including those with direct bearing on safety, environmental performance, access and acoustics, especially in demanding environments such as education and healthcare.
- List the sustainability attributes of wood ceilings, including use of recycled fiber, FSC certification for responsible chain of custody in materials, LEED contribution, HPDs and EPDs, Red List Materials requirements, indoor air quality through use of low-emission binders, finishes and related materials.
