PARAFON Decibel 40

Parafon Decibel 40 Open Ceiling Edge A
Decibel is a series of suspended ceiling products with sound reducing and sound absorbing properties whose primary area of application is sound reduction between rooms in buildings where the intermediate walls do not extend all the way up to the rafters. PARAFON Decibel 40 is an acoustic tile with 40 dB sound-reducing capacity – "room to room". Core of noncombustible stone wool and gypsum wallboard on the rear; Classic surface layer.
