What is Speech Guard ?
Speech Guard is a patented sound control system for reducing noise and increasing speech privacy in drop tile ceilings. Developed as a result of years of acoustical experience, Speech Guard is a light hood and tile system designed to block noise pathways in drop tile ceilings while still maintaining airflow and meeting fire codes. The system consists of the Speech Guard Light Hood, Shield Guard Tile Backer, and most recently the Plenum Return Silencer. Lights are often the biggest culprit when there are issues with noise as there are often completely open pathways. The Speech Guard light hood sits comfortably over 2×2 and 2×4 light fixtures, as well as odd sized lights, to block sound. To address noise that flows through the tiles Shield Guard lays over ceiling tiles integrating with the pre-existing grid. Completing the system the Plenum Return Silencer fits over plenum air returns stopping noise from traveling through the ceiling while still allowing air to pass through the plenum return. When used in conjunction these components cap all direct pathways for sound, greatly improving privacy and reducing noise. For acute problems various individual parts of the system can be utilized to meet the needs of a specific space. Contact us with any and all inquiries!
