Hear the Difference of our Acoustical Steel

March 8, 2021

Whether for buildings that house heavy machinery or provide care for animals, Morton’s acoustical steel is the ideal solution for reducing the level of noise inside your building. Morton’s Hi-Rib™ acoustical steel is perforated and then roll-formed at one of our manufacturing plants. It is then applied during the construction of your building with sound-absorbent materials in the wall and ceiling cavities.


When it is applied to your building interior, sound passes through the perforations to the vapor barrier and insulation, which provides a quieter, more sound controlled environment. The superior interior finish of acoustical steel results in a one of the most efficient sound insulation systems in the construction industry.

We put our acoustical steel to the test against other interior finishes such as concrete or steel:

We measured sound absorption using Noise Reduction Coefficients. NRC is figured on a scale of 0 to 1, with 1 indicating that all sound is absorbed. Morton’s acoustical steel on the sidewalls and ceiling performed the best.
