  • Standard 10' long blade option allows for better linear runs, minimizing seams in large installations
  • Soft visual, more quieting acoustics
  • Sound absorption up to 0.85 NRC dependent on blade depth and spacing
  • Pair with CALLA to get total noise control and design flexibility with TOTAL ACOUSTICS ceiling panels: NRC + CAC = Total Acoustics
  • Embedded threaded connectors for installation versatility including cable-to-deck independent suspension, threaded rod, and direct to 15/16" grid
  • CLEANASSURE family of products – includes disinfectable panels, suspension systems, and trim
  • Great retrofit solution
  • Made from 60% pre-consumer recycled PET fibers
  • 3/8" thick blades provide a sleek linear visual

  • Mix standard lengths and depths for dynamic visuals
  • Independent suspension now allows for sloped installations
Felt (Recycled PET)
Sound Absorption (NRC)

A measure for rating the overall sound absorption of a material when used in an enclosed architectural space where sound is reflected at many angles of incidence. A ceiling system with an NRC < 0.50 is low performance, an NRC > 0.70 is high performance.

Up to 0.85
Fire Performance
Class A
Light Reflectance

A high light reflective ceiling – LR 0.83 or greater, per ASTM E1477-98 as referred to in ASTM E1264-98 – makes lighting systems, especially indirect lighting, more effective while further reducing energy costs and consumption. LR values apply to White panels only.

Mold/Mildew Resistance

Ceiling panels with BIOBLOCK performance resist the growth of mold and mildew on the panel surface.
Ceiling panels with BIOBLOCK Plus performance resist the growth of odor and stain-producing bacteria as well as mold and mildew on the ceiling panel surface.

Sag/Humidity Resistance

Ceiling panels maintain humidity and sag resistance.

Impact Resistance

Surface impact based on the Striking Ball Impact Test, modified ASTM D1037 procedure.

Scratch Resistance

Excellent resistance to surface scratching, scuffing or chipping as per Hess Rake Test.


May be sprayed following CDC recommendations using EPA disinfectant​ cleaners per Armstrong Cleaning & Disinfecting Guidelines​
