Wood ceiling portfolio
Armstrong Ceiling & Wall Systems
Designed to add the warm, rich look of wood while still imparting a feeling of openness, new WoodWorks Open Cell Vector ceilings are available in three standard designs, two panel sizes, and four natural solid wood finishes. The Vector edge produces a sleek 1/4-inch reveal that minimizes the suspension system, creating a ceiling that is more monolithic in appearance, yet still downward accessible. By mixing and matching different sizes and designs, WoodWorks Open Cell Vector panels can be patterned in a variety of ways to create the look of a custom, one-of-a-kind ceiling using standard panels. The open cell design also allows the use of pendant lights and other hanging fixtures without the need to cut the panels. Infill panels are available to add acoustics to a space or to cover plenum obstructions. The new addition is well-suited for use in applications ranging from retail, hospitality, and healthcare to higher education and commercial office environments.
