Armstrong Adds Five More Partners Offering Components Compatible With TechZone Ceilings
Armstrong Ceilings announced that it has teamed with five industry partners in lighting fixtures, air diffusers and chilled beams to create components that are pre-qualified for fit and finish in the company’s TechZone Ceiling System.
TechZone is the first and only acoustical ceiling system that places lighting, including LED lights, diffusers, and sprinklers in a narrow 4 or 6 inch wide technical zone, or new chilled beam technologies in a 12 inch wide technical zone, organizing all the services in the plenum to help create an uncluttered ceiling visual.
When installed with a special TechZone yoke component, the 6 inch wide technical zone can also accommodate continuous linear lighting and air diffusers for even more of a clean, uninterrupted look. The new partners are the Kurt Versen Company, Litecontrol, and Lunera Lighting Inc. all of which manufacture lighting fixtures; Price Industries, which manufactures air diffusers; and TROX USA Inc., which manufactures chilled beams.
By teaming with the nation’s leading lighting, diffuser, sprinkler, and chilled beam manufacturers, Armstrong is able to provide an engineered, totally integrated, easy-to-specify ceiling system that uses standard components but creates a clean, custom look in a space, without the long lead times and cost often associated with custom materials to achieve the same look.
The system eliminates the need for penetrations in the ceiling panels, making them more aesthetically pleasing and easier to install. Maintenance hassles and panel damage are also limited since all services are housed in the technical zone.
In addition, all ceiling panels, technical panels, light fixtures, and diffusers are available in lay-in and tegular versions to ensure that all components align precisely for a uniform look. The technical zones also coordinate visually with both Armstrong Optima and Ultima fine textured ceiling panels.
Easily installed in standard suspension systems, Optima and Ultima ceiling panels both provide exceptional noise reduction and light reflectance. And, in terms of sustainability, the combination of TechZone and High Light Reflectance Optima or Ultima ceiling panels can contribute to LEED points for recycled content, daylighting, and energy consumption.
