Learn how we use the framework to create products that are healthy, inspirational and give back to the environment.

Tectum Ceiling & Wall Panels

The International Living Future Institute has awarded TECTUM Ceiling and Wall Panels with the Living Product Challenge Imperative Certification.


We continue to expand the plan for a sustainable future with the TECTUM family of products. TECTUM is made of fibers from one of the most sustainably harvested trees of its kind, Aspen. The TECTUM product is made of the natural fiber and binder that is turned into a unique textured panel used in ceilings and wall products.  Not only does it bring nature inside, it provides sound absorption making it an ideal solution for spaces where durability and noise control are needed.
