To meet the growing trend for monolithic ceilings as well as sustainable interior solutions, Armstrong Ceilings has enhanced its Ultima+ range with a new fully-concealed ceiling system solution.
Called Finesse, the fully-concealed, fully-painted edge detail is said to combine the uniform visual popular in contemporary design with the key benefits of suspended ceilings.
Its sleek monolithic visual has been designed to appeal to architects and interior designers, while its ease of accessibility for maintenance will be equally attractive to building managers. This is complemented by ease of installation for contractors who can pre-define accessible tiles when planning the installation.
Available in 600mm x 600mm and 1200mm x 600mm modules, the tiles can be installed in standard and staggered layouts. Ultima+ Finesse ceilings feature all the advantages of the Ultima+ system, but with no visible grid.
The Ultima+ range offers acoustic and aesthetic advantages such as its Class C sound absorption performance, ISO 5 Clean Room Classification, and a bright-white finely-textured surface. This surface finish not only provides high light-reflectance but also excellent cleanability, scratch-resistance and a longer life.
Manufactured with up to 36% recycled content, it is also 95% humidity-resistant and the tiles’ 87% light reflectance helps achieve 16% cost savings compared with indirect lighting. These factors help to make the Ultima+ Finesse edge detail particularly suitable for open and closed-plan spaces such as lobbies, reception areas and corridors in offices, healthcare and education establishments, and retail outlets.
With Ultima+ Finesse, specifiers can now choose healthy materials for their next interior project as both the tile and grid are Cradle-to-Cradle certified. The Ultima+ range is also fully recyclable and can be re-used continuously, helping architects and interior designers meet sustainable targets.
