The main considerations for a gym would be acoustics and humidity resistance.
A high sound absorbing tile (Class A 0.85-0.90 and above) would be suggested as this will ensure a good proportion of the noise is taken out of the room and doesn’t bounce back in, creating an unpleasant environment.
Humidity resistance is also important to ensure the ceiling tiles remain rigid and don’t sag, reducing the risk of a hazard.
Along with the performance requirements above, the image of the ceiling is ultimately important to create the right overall image. Bright, white tiles are very popular and often meet the performance criteria. However, we have noticed that ceiling canopies can help create a more industrial look by leaving pipes exposed, whilst also serving an acoustic benefit.
