Acoustical Soundproofing Ceiling Tile

ThunderTile - T-Bar Acoustic Panels

ThunderTile is a unique acoustic T-bar ceiling tile that combines the remarkable absorption characteristics of high density glass wool with the sound-blocking attributes of gypsum board. Once installed, ThunderTiles provide effective control of the reverberant field while eliminating bothersome primary reflections that make communication difficult.

T-Bar Acoustic Panels

  • Dual function composite T-Bar ceiling tile
  • Combines absorptive glass wool with gypsum board
  • Improves intelligibility by reducing room echo
  • Stops sound from entering or exiting room
  • Absolute white finish for optimum reflectivity


ThunderTiles combine high density 6lb glass wool with ½” gypsum board. The visible face features a decorative tissue with a painted latex finish. The acoustic tile is fully encapsulated in micromesh and edges are sealed to eliminate dusting during handling.

Designed to fit in standard T-bar ceilings. ThunderTile sizes are 24” x 24” (60cm x 60cm) and 24” x 48” (60cm x 121cm). Each size is available in a choice of flush-mount (trim edges) or drop-down (reveal edges) designs.

Superior acoustic performance coupled with exceptional sound blocking make the ThunderTile an ideal choice for controlling noise between offices, class rooms and entertainment areas and for controlling excessive ambiance which can affect speech intelligibility.

ThunderTiles have been independently tested for fire and smoke development to meet the rigorous ASTM E84 for use in the United States and CAN-UL S102 for use in Canada.
