vocal booth ceiling


Hello, I am building a room inside a room, a vocal booth, I need help with the ceiling, it cannot be attached to the existing room, only put on top of the walls. what kind of products/ or building techniques are available in the market to prevent the ceiling from having a "belly" in time... something that will help me build a strong ceiling. (sorry for the non professional language )

If someone can point me in the right direction Thank you!

This really should be in the 'building and construction' forum, but anyway...

Sheetrock. Or better, quietrock. The building techniques for your decoupled room are the same as normal construction. You need to run some kind of ceiling joists on top of the walls. The Quietrock gets attached to the joists.

As an alternative to a full-on room-within-a-room, have you considered using a resilient channel system (metal hat channel w/ sound-isolation clips)? http://decibeldropadhesive.lamvin.com/
