Acoustical Ceiling Solution

Thornton Creek RV Community

Kanopi helped the RV community with an acoustical solution for their clubhouse. We were able to guide them through a robust product selection and are elated with how the ceiling project turned out.

The challenge

The community of Thornton Creek, an RV golf community nestled in between Punta Gorda and Arcadia in Florida, had severe echoing issues in their recently updated clubhouse. The nearly 5 year old drywall ceiling wasn’t helping control the noise when there were events and gatherings for the residents of the community in the hall. With almost 100 RV and rental property lots, the community gets a lot of use out of their hall.

The clubhouse has a pool, screened outdoor lanai, gym, laundry and mail room. A pickleball court and storage lot for boats or trailers are also available within the property. There is a driving range and 12 hole golf course adjacent to the community.

Relaxation and comfort are a must with this community. So when the center had echoes, the complaints rolled in. According to Edward Galuska, the project manager, “Our function hall had severe echo’s due to hard reflective surfaces."

The solution

To try to find a solution for the noise issue, Galuska turned to the internet. He quickly began searching for different ceiling suppliers. With his knowledge of Armstrong, that's where he went first and quickly found Kanopi.

With this being his first time purchasing ceiling tiles, Galuska needed some options and guidance. “The product selection offered was very broad. Our interest was for an acoustical product of which you offered many choices.”

With that in mind, Galuska chose CIRRUS High NRC. These tiles have excellent sound blocking and are even better with sound absorption, making them an ideal choice.

With the new ceiling in, the hall is now better than ever. “It has given us our function hall back as a very comfortable and usable space.”

“Everyone has noticed a profound improvement in acoustic reduction and appearance. It is beautiful. Without question, we would work with Kanopi again.”
