As design trends shift toward larger spaces with exposed ceilings, piping, and HVAC systems, many architects and designers are challenged to find ways to insulate these spaces so they meet code without losing the aesthetic appeal of the original design. Learn about the materials that are available that can help control acoustics, improve building efficiency, and even offer improved functionality in the space for building occupants. This webinar will cover materials that are designed to be left exposed, help target and control acoustics, and contribute to an improved visual and acoustical experience for the building occupants.
