Ceilings for Healing Environments

Addressing COVID-19 Concerns

          Shown above: ULTIMA Health Zone (r)

Healthcare

The COVID-19 crisis has placed an unprecedented burden on our healthcare infrastructure. As hospitals are working to adjust to the needs of an infectious disease pandemic, it's more important than ever to select the right products for the right spaces. 

How Ceilings Can Help:  Armstrong recommendations are based on FGI Guidelines.

  • Existing ceilings: Ensure you are following cleaning guidelines. See ours here.
  • Existing suspension systems: Some systems can be retrofitted with gasketing in areas needing a negative pressure environment.
    For more information, please contact TechLine

Not sure what ceiling you have?

  • Specifying new ceilings: Smooth, scrubbable ceiling panels meet FGI guidelines for areas where patients are being treated. 
  • Specifying suspension systems: Consider Clean Room Suspension Systems for the best performance in any healthcare space.
     

We’re ready to help with your new build, expansion, or retrofit. Contact your local Armstrong Sales Representative to get started.

Challenge:

Hospital laboratory and classroom spaces need acoustical, yet cleanable surfaces.

Solution:

Select from hospital ceiling products that offer washable surfaces, Total Acoustics performance, and high light reflectance to create high performance spaces.

Challenge:

If you’ve ever had even a short hospital stay, you have firsthand knowledge of just how overwhelming noise can be. Research confirms that noise levels in patient rooms often exceed the World Health Organization guidelines of 35 dBA during the day and 30 dBA at night, creating more stressful environments for patients and disrupting sleep.

Solution:

To create a space that results in optimum patient recuperation, consider Total Acoustics hospital ceilings, which can help create peaceful and quieter places to recover, while meeting healthcare privacy requirements. Product and material choices throughout our portfolio can help you create ceiling designs that range from natural and restorative to flavorful and uplifting.

Challenge:

MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) suites, where strong magnetic fields exist, require a non-corrosive ceiling suspension system that meets the needs for non-magnetic environments.

Solution:

Health Zone Optima hospital ceiling panels are a perfect fit, paired with our aluminum grid and perimeter trim suspension systems. These ceiling panels are moisture resistant and come with standard maintenance and sound-absorbing features.

Challenge:

Corridors in healthcare are busy, often with shallow plenums that require frequent access. Corridors are also sources of unwanted noise that can take away from positive patient experiences. It's important to accommodate HVAC and medical equipment, while also keeping corridors quiet.

Solution:

Hospital ceilings designed for acoustics and frequent access can help keep corridors functional and quiet.

Challenge:

These hectic and multi-functional spaces require a ceiling that's very versatile. Key ceiling criteria in an emergency room includes water-resistant surfaces that are easy to clean to prevent infection, sound absorption and blocking to control unwanted sound, and light reflectance.

Solution:

Health Zone hospital ceiling tiles with Total Acoustics performance can improve patient outcomes and interactions between doctors and staff while providing the durability and performance emergency rooms demand.

Challenge:

Keep the nurses stations quiet, while providing a space for doctors and staff to meet and collaborate effectively.

Solution:

Health Zone ceiling tiles provide the ideal combination of sound absorption and sound blocking for nurses stations to control noise from adjacent spaces plus enable private or easily heard communications.

Challenge:

The facility’s main lobby can set the tone for the entire design theme and personality of a building. Waiting areas also play an important role in alleviating the stress and anxiety that often accompany a visit to the hospital.

Solution:

Create a sanctuary for patients and families with hospital ceiling solutions that offer soothing and uplifting design while providing noise control. Whether the goal is to inspire, decrease stress, or simply to cause a person to stop and take a deep breath – our full portfolio of hospital ceiling products come in a variety of materials and colors to achieve the effect you want.

Challenge:

Spaces reserved for critical care require cleanability, among other things, to help prevent infection. Acoustics help provide a more peaceful setting in which to receive care.

Solution: Armstrong recommendations are based on FGI Guidelines.

Ceilings
Installing a ceiling with the right mix of cleanability and acoustical performance is an important part of a healthy environment to increase comfort for patients in these critical care spaces. 

Suspension Systems
Clean Room Suspension Systems should be considered for the best performance in any healthcare space. Existing Suspension systems can be retrofitted with gasketing in areas needing a negative pressure environment.

Challenge:

Re-purposing existing spaces for testing and isolation to address patient needs is a current need. The ability to clean these spaces to protect healthcare workers and patients is more important than ever before. 

Solution: Armstrong recommendations are based on FGI Guidelines.

Ceilings 
Key ceiling system criteria in these spaces call for scrubbable, water-resistant surfaces that are easy to clean. Smooth, scrubbable ceiling panels meet FGI guidelines for areas where patients are being treated. Porous acoustical ceiling panels should be replaced with nonporous ceiling panels.

Suspension Systems
Clean Room Suspension Systems should be considered for the best performance in any healthcare space. Existing Suspension systems can be retrofitted with gasketing in areas needing a negative pressure environment.

Penetrations
Mechanical or electrical penetrations in the ceiling membrane must be sealed.
