Architectural spaces are there to be designed. The ideas belong to the designer. Anutone can enable the designer to capture their ideas and turn them from concept to reality. Think islands in the sky and Carnival Ceiling Floats is the reality. Yes! Whether it is for initial design or an afterthought, Carnival Ceiling Floats with SoundSkelet Infinity is for all seasons. Creating light coves, ceiling clouds, floating islands, projected transitions and design accents with modular tiles suspended on SoundSkelet T15 / O15 / U15 or a seamless finish with SoundSnazz is now so easy and simple thanks to the innovation of Carnival Ceiling Floats with SoundSkelet Infinity.

Game-change
Not only are Carnival Ceiling Floats with modular tiles or seamless panels possible but also the hitherto substitute of site-installed gypsum assemblies to create similar effect which was time-consuming, expensive, imperfect and non-acoustics is now rendered primitive and avoidable.

Benefits

And all other interior spaces that have adopted the futuristic concepts of open plenum with ceiling floats as the norm.

Acoustical Performance
Carnival Ceiling Floats provide greater sound absorption than a continuous ceiling of the same surface area because the soundwaves are absorbed from both surfaces of the float the exposed bottom surface and the non-exposed top surface. Factors to be considered for acoustical performance include Size of the float Number of floats for a given enclosed space Plenum depth of the float from the soffit Ceiling tile or panel selection Acoustical overlay (if any) on the ceiling tile or panel

Features Carnival
Very high aesthetic value and visual appeal Superior acoustical performance both surfaces available for sound absorption Flexibility in layout and sizing of ceiling floats Multi level imparts the illusion of overhead movement Integration of multi products & large format panels possible Standard or custom sizes to suit project needs

Design Considerations
Only SoundSkelet Infinity Square Edge can sport rounded corners. Steppe & Knife Edge cannot feature rounded corners. The colour matching of SoundSkelet Infinity and SoundSkelet T15 / O15 / U15 to a coloured ceiling tile will achieve 75-95% results as it represents two very different materials. Ceiling floats can only be installed in a horizontal plane. It cannot be sloped or curved along its horizontal axis. Ceiling floats like any other architectural elements located in the plenum may interfere with fire detection and suppression systems. Life safety system must be installed in the open plenum areas or penetrated through the ceiling floats. In seismic zones additional lateral supports may become necessary. These are not included in original kits. Ceiling floats is not for outdoor use.
