Acoustical tiles are available in dozens of different textures and styles, and three different profiles: square edge, notched edge, and, most attractive, beveled notched edge. As an alternative to the traditional metal grid systems, interlocking tiles can be purchased that staple to wood furring strips, which are typically spaced at 12-inch intervals.
Care is need when choosing ceiling tiles for sound-proofing because some may look very similar in style and pattern to acoustical tiles without having their special property. Avoid problems by carefully checking labels and product literature.
