Mayo Correctional - Mayo FL
Designed to meet the specific security and acoustical requirements in confinement areas, the Tectum Direct Attachment Ceiling/Wall System has been successfully used in hundreds of correctional facilities across the country. The system is ideal for large, open areas such as dormitories and dining halls, as well as corridors where one long, steel-backed panel can span the corridor width. To install, simply attach the panels in an Ashlar pattern directly to the ceiling, furring, or drywall suspension grid using tamper-resistant screws.

NRC/Mountings - Noise Reduction
Up to 1.00 NRC can be achieved depending on mounting style. Furring strips installed horizontally (when using
vertical panels) are recommended and should be a maximum of 24" o.c. when using 1"-thick panels.

Light Reflectance


Tectum ceiling and wall panel measurements are plus or minus
1/8 - 1/4". Thicknesses are nominal. Panels that are to be butted must be beveled and will require field fitting or molding can be used to cover edges.


Tectum Acoustical Panels can be used over swimming pools and in open construction such as breezeways and open garages. They should not be installed where they will come in direct contact with water or condensation. Reveal edge panels (Tonico) should not be used for this purpose.

1" panels should not be used where the relative humidity will exceed 85%. Panels 1½" or thicker are not restricted by humidity conditions.

In all cases, the plenum must provide cross-ventilation to prevent condensation.
