Application

Installed in suspended ceiling voids between a concrete slab soffit and the top junction of a plasterboard partition. One pack of Martini Easy Baffle is designed to fit a ceiling to a soffit height of 600 mm. To work effectively, Martini Easy Baffle must be compressed by 30%.

Acoustic performance

 When placed between a concrete slab soffit and the top junction of a plasterboard partition wall, Easy Baffle can achieve a sound transmission reduction of up to 9–16 decibels across a range of frequencies including general speech range frequencies – the most common nuisance noise in commercial buildings.

Easy Baffle has a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.9 as tested in accordance with AS/ISO 354-2006.

Installation

Martini Easy Baffle Illustration

Martini Easy Baffle is easy to install in ceiling voids. The product is packaged in a compressed form to a thickness of 450mm. One pack of Martini Easy Baffle is designed to fit in a ceiling to soffit height of 600mm. To work effectively, Martini Easy Baffle must be compressed by 30%.

If the void is greater than 600mm in height, add one extra batt for every 65mm over 600mm. The product can be made to order to suit other void heights subject to minimum quantities.

Installed in five easy steps:

  1. Cut off both ends off the pack leaving the batts in the remaining sleeve.
  2. Insert the batts in their sleeve into the void.
  3. Centre the pack length-ways to follow the partition centre line.
  4. Slit the remaining plastic sleeve and remove; the batts will then expand to fill the void. At 600mm void height, 30% compression is achieved.
  5. Adjust batts to form an even stack for the next pack to adjoin to.

Where services such as HVAC ducts, pipes and cable trays run through the void then batts should be installed individually under, over and around the obstruction to a suitable compression.
