Successful Acoustic Ceiling Tile Replacement at Darwin High School School Acoustic Ceiling Tile Case Study | Darwin High School
Acoustic excellence at Darwin
The Northern Territory Government recently worked on an extensive project with long-term CSR Gyprock customer and Australian Plaster Acoustics, to help solve a recurring issue with failing ceiling systems.
This project was considerably large in scale, replacing approximately 3000 square metres of ceilings in the administration building of the high school, all whilst working with a limited time frame during mid-term school holidays.
There was a need to manage the sound reverberation and reduction of noise within the learning environments at Darwin High School, so an acoustic ceiling tile was a necessary inclusion

Australian Plaster Acoustics put forward the high quality Shadex option of custom made ceiling tiles - a 600mm x 600mm acoustic bespoke ceiling tile made with Gyprock Casting Plaster – a grit free speciality plaster that produces a strong moulded product with a clean cast face.
Incorporating a 3D grid pattern of tiny square blocks randomly aligned on the tile, Shadex provides a rigid, faceted diamond appearance once installed.
I wanted to ensure that the ceiling tiles created were unique in style, aesthetically pleasing and most importantly, offered excellent sound absorption capabilities
