Curve Acoustical Gypsum Panels

September 2016

CertainTeed Ceilings is bending the rules of ceiling design with the introduction of Gyptone® BIG™ Curve, the industry’s only perforated acoustical gypsum panel that can achieve highly curved ceilings without the cost and time associated with custom fabrication. It seamlessly integrates with the company’s other revolutionary Gyptone products to create dynamic, sweeping interior surfaces without any breaks or grid.
At only 6.5mm thick, Gyptone BIG Curve can be easily dry bent to a 10' radius, and can achieve up to a 5' radius by wet bending. The panels are fitted with an acoustical backing tissue and are available in a variety of striking perforation patterns, each with varying degrees of sound absorption and eye-catching beauty. With an NRC up to 0.70 and the ability to fine-tune acoustics based on placement and curve radius, Gyptone BIG Curve is ideal for calming healing environments, inspirational learning spaces and engaging workplaces.
Gyptone BIG Curve comes in modular 2400mm x 1200mm panels. The panels can be easily painted with a short nap roller to complement any palette or add an attention-grabbing burst of color.
Also, Gyptone BIG Curve ceilings are designed for simple integration of lighting elements, creating harmonic interplay where ceiling and light naturally blend into the collective architecture. Light fixtures and ventilation can serve as breaks in the ceiling surface, or can be pulled back into the recesses for a simple backlit design. Again, the only limit is the designer’s imagination.
Made of 85% recycled content and certified for low-VOC emissions, Gyptone BIG Curve contributes to sustainable building standards and helps maintain high indoor air quality. It is also covered by CertainTeed’s industry-first collection of Health Product Declarations for ceilings solutions.
