Square One in Hollywood uses egg crates as ceiling tiles. A creative way to ease the noise common in crowded restaurants.

    For the EcoGeeks like me out there, one thing I would like to point out is that most likely, to comply with health code, there is a standard 2×4 ceiling grid with ceiling tiles behind those egg crates. And my money is on these ceiling tiles being brand new. Being a food service establishment, recycling used foam that could have absorbed bacteria from transporting material, would not permitted. So my educated guess would be that this method uses more virgin materials than the traditional method.

    I know, I can be a pessimist sometimes.

    I want to attach them to a 'tin roofing sheet" in a simple cottage in Africa which will get a lot of heat on the bottom side of the roofing. Do you have any suggestions as to how to attach them?

    As a scientist, I am not sure anymore that life can be reduced to a class struggle, to dialectical materialism, or any set of formulas. Life is spontaneous and it is unpredictable, it is magical. I think that we have struggled so hard with the tangible that we have forgotten the intangible.

    I have heard about using egg crates as a sound barrier but not in a busineee environment. Due to the fact this is a restaurant coudl the egg crates be a potential fire hazard?
