When designing an energy-efficient building, people tend
to focus on everything from insulation to window
placement.
But, in fact, ceiling systems can also play a major role in
effective energy conservation. Here are a couple of key
things to consider for your next green-building project…

WASTE MANAGEMENT
A light reflectance of 90% or more achieves 20% energy
cost saving when used with indirect lighting, helping to yield
total building energy savings of up to 11%.
A well designed ceiling with high light reflectance improves
space illumination, allowing for fewer light fixtures, a
reduced electrical light output, lower maintenance costs
and a reduced cooling load.
Whatever your ceiling project, Armstrong helps you
to reduce your environmental impact with responsible
solutions, from product design & raw material selection to
manufacturing & logistics.
Recycling can be as good for you as it is for the
environment. It reduces waste, saves money and is a smart
alternative to our dwindling landfill capacity.
For more information, please contact us.
• Acoustical comfort
With acoustics, you need to determine whether intelligibility,
concentration or confidentiality is required? Armstrong can
help you find the right acoustic solution for your space.
You can choose from a wide portfolio of products such
as Armstrong canopies or standard suspended ceiling
solutions.
• Raw material
Raw materials for our ceilings are renewable and abundant
in nature - Biosoluble mineral wool (the wools used in our
products meet the classification “exempt” as defined by EC
directive 97/69/EC 1997), perlite, natural starch, recycled
paper, recycled tiles and clay. None of our ceiling products
contain asbestos.
Launched in the UK, France, Benelux and expanding across
Europe, we now offer a full acoustical ceiling recycling
service during demolition, construction and renovation
stages of your project.
• Air quality
Increasing attention is being given to the quality of the
indoor environment and the presence of Volatile Organic
Compounds (VOCs) within it.
In this respect, Armstrong offers a wide selection of ceiling
systems with safe and low emissions.
Contact us for performance details.
• Recycled content
A significant proportion of our ceiling tiles are produced
using recycled raw materials and recycled ceiling tiles (both
during the manufacturing process and more recently postconsumer suspended ceilings returned to the plant). These
recycled contents will now be indicated on all Armstrong’s
published literature in accordance with EN ISO 14021:2001.
With COOLZONE, the phase change material encased in
the cassette stores and releases large amounts of energy,
reducing cooling costs and maintaining a comfortable
temperature in which to work, live, learn and play.
The thermal mass of the buildings structure absorbs
daytime thermal gains and then, during the night time, the
heat stored in the thermal mass of the building is released
back to the room. There needs to be ‘contact’ between the
air within the room and the buildings thermal mass in order
for thermal transfer to occur.
Island ceilings provide an ideal solution in these instances
by adding design elements to a space and helping to
maintain acoustical and visual comfort.
• Cradle to Cradle®
In achieving Cradle to Cradle® certification Armstrong has
become the first ceiling tile manufacturer in Europe to be
recognised for using environmentally safe and healthy
materials designed for material utilisation.

ARCHITECTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL TRENDS
Design trends are a direct result to changing
social, economical and ecological influences.
Today’s architecture is eco-responsible
and sustainable, combined with a design
spectrum ranging from “minimalist” to fully
exposed.
The consideration of energy efficiency and
environmental impact (CO2 footprint, waste,
recycled content, recyclability) of building
materials is paramount in the design and
construction phases of the building.
Interior finishes equally set the levels of
comfort and work efficiency when the space
is occupied.
Ceilings, representing the largest exposed
interior finish in a building, are a key
contributor towards defining the aesthetics,
acoustics and lighting performance of building
interiors.
Whether considering an exposed structure
that utilises the thermal mass properties
of the concrete slab or creating a wall to
FABRIC Canopy X
wall ceiling surface, Armstrong offers ceiling
designs, materials and performances to
complement architectural concepts, ranging
from monolithic to discountinous visuals.
OPTIMA CURVED Canopy
DISCONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS WITH THE CANOPY
In response to new architectural trends calling for acoustical and design solutions
using exposed soffits and to address the increasing focus on end users’ well
being, Armstrong has designed a range of discontinuous ceilings, Canopies and
Baffles to deliver the highest quality of workplace standards whilst supporting the
original architectural concept.
Available to be designed in an exposed structure project or to complement an
existing wall to wall ceiling solution, canopy elements may be:
■ Visually striking for a contemporary accent;
■ Aesthetically integrated and non obtrusive with an emphasis on performance;
■ Coloured to create contrast and rhythm;
■ Shaped to coordinate with furniture;
■ Grouped to replicate key architectural features;
■ Curved to create a cocooning effect and an intimate setting;
■ Textured or microperforated to suit design themes;
■ Retrofitted under an existing wall to wall solution;
■ Intelligent, loaded with technology and service elements;
■ Environmental friendly, with “no waste” on site;
■ Custom because …you are one of a kind!

ACOUSTICAL PERFORMANCE
Armstrong OPTIMA Baffles can significantly reduce background noise levels and reverberation times within spaces and enhance speech intelligibility.
They provide absorption on all surfaces of the product either as a ‘planar’ absorber (αw), when installed as a linear array; or as a ‘discrete’ absorber
(EAA) when installed as separate decorative elements.

ACOUSTICAL PERFORMANCE
EN ISO 354
Armstrong METAL Baffles will significantly reduce background noise and reverberation time, and enhance speech intelligibility.
Sound is absorbed via regular full depth perforations across the faces and edges of the panels, into the high performance glass wool acoustic
filling – thus providing a greater level of sound control than a continuous ceiling of similar area.

MINERAL SOLUTIONS
BPM Vita Milano (I) – TECH ZONE
■ LAMINATED
■ NON

■ DECORATIVE
MONOLITHIC SOLUTIONS...
Suspended ceiling systems have moved from providing mainly
functional features (masking the building’s infrastructure whilst
providing accessibility) to contributing on a much greater scale
to the interior design, acoustics and overall environmental impacts
with such innovations as TECH ZONE. Daylight optimisation with
high ceiling tile light reflectance values has led to the increasing
consideration of whiter and larger modules with finer textures.
Aiming at minimising aesthetical intrusions in the ceiling plan,
Armstrong has further developed Vector, an edge detail producing
a concealed grid and more monolithic look. In spaces where eye
catching visuals are the main drive, Armstrong’s research in designer
grids has also exciting new avenues to generate rhythm in the ceiling
plane with the Interlude range.
ULTIMA+ Vector
28
LAMINATED
The Armstrong range of laminated products provide clean, bright, non
perforated visuals which have been designed for today’s challenging
interior requirements.
These durable surfaces, such as ULTIMA+, provide very high levels
of scratch resistance along with up to 87% light reflectance.
Our laminated range also provides superior acoustical control.
Depending on whether the end user requires intelligibility,
confidentiality, concentration or a balance of these, Armstrong has a
solution.
■ The OP range provides up to 1.00 W of sound absorption, helping
to control the acoustical environment in open plan spaces.
The dB range is designed to offer up to 43 dB of sound attenuation,
helping to provide improved confidentiality within closed office areas.
■
The standard range provides both good sound absorption and
good levels of sound attenuation to provide the perfect blend of
acoustical comfort in general room spaces.
■
PERLA OP
DUNE Vector
NON LAMINATED
DECORATIVE
This classic range of products provides a blend of performance, quality
and affordability for which the Armstrong ceiling brand is famous.
The range of DUNE finishes highlights the core line of ceilings from
Armstrong. These finely textured visuals, either plain or perforated,
provide good levels of sound absorption and sound attenuation.
DUNE MAX offers increased levels of absorption whilst the
DUNE dB range provides high levels of sound attenuation.
The Armstrong Decorative range recognises that there are many areas
within a building where a designer or end user would like to express
a theme, or use the ceiling to create added interest within a space.
From the modern geometric designs of the GRAPHIS range or by
using colour such as the COLORTONE ranges through to the subtle
CIRRUS texture and designs, Armstrong has a wide range
of designs and colours to help sculpt the light in a space.

SECURITY
METAL Ceilings products are naturally
strong and impact resistant due to their steel
construction. For additional security,
Axal Vector, Q-Clip, R-Clip, T-Clip F,
R-H 200, R-H 215 and R-H 220 products
can be secured to their supporting grid
structures making them suitable for areas
where preventing unauthorised access
to the ceiling plenum is a requirement.
Q-Clip, R-Clip and R-H 200 products
can also be back coated and secured
for use in semi-external areas.
SEMI-STANDARD DETAILS
The ability to integrate building services
equipment is a major feature of METAL
Ceilings systems. Metal tiles can be
engineered with cut-outs, apertures and
special details to accommodate the
proliferation of services utilised in today’s
modern building projects. Whether the
specifier selects a standard metal tile or a
more customised solution for his project,
lighting fittings, air conditioning grilles
and fire protection equipment need to be
harmonised with the ceiling system. For us,
this is standard practice, and the advanced
manufacturing capabilities of our METAL
Ceilings facilities enable METAL Ceilings
products to be offered complete with
engineered solutions for the incorporation
of building services. Special size and half
module tiles can also be produced when
necessary to finish ceilings at perimeters and
other junctions.

Non-woven acoustic fleece provides a cost
effective solution for general sound absorption
requirements. As a solution that is bonded to
the reverse of the metal tile it helps eliminate
pattern staining issues that may occur with
loose laid solutions.
Premium B15 solutions have been developed
to achieve a wide range of performance values
for both sound absorption and high sound
attenuation performance. It combines the nonwoven acoustic fleece with a 15mm mineral
infill board as a factory fitted acoustic solution.

THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY
EN 12667
& ISO 8301
When using Metal perforated metal suspended ceilings,
the cavity above may be used as part of the mechanical air
distribution system when it is used as a supply plenum. With
this arrangement the air pressure in the plenum is always
positive in comparison to the pressure in the room below.
Specific tiles can be selected as open (active), and these
will become air diffusers, while the remaining tiles will have
their perforations blocked (inactive). In this way the air flow
supply volume to the room can be controlled and balanced
dependent upon the pressure differential and the air change
requirements.
Armstrong conducts extensive tests of air flow on a range
of its more common Metal products, in accordance with
EN 12114 and EN ISO 13829, by third party accredited
laboratories. Please contact your local ATS/MSC centre for
further details of these results.

CONFIGURABLE SOLUTIONS
Armstrong offers a large selection of configurable solutions. Please contact us for further information.
Corridor Ceilings
Corridor ceiling systems use rectangular panels which are
fixed to the side walls perpendicular to the walking direction.
100 % of the ceiling cavity can thus be used for installations
such as ventilation channels or cables. The individual ceilings
elements can be easily disassembled at any time and thus
ensure optimum access to the ceiling cavity.
Island Ceilings
Based on a clear modular concept, the D-Clip, D-H 700
opens up a new segment in the ceiling sector. The individual
island ceilings meet the highest standards of acoustic
qualification, both for the entire room and also for creation of
acoustic focal points. Lighting of all types can be integrated
into the islands and thus underline maximum system flexibility.
Linear Grid
Linear-grid systems, used especially in office complexes,
are designed for large rooms with flexible partitioning. Partition
walls can be easily positioned and moved within the grids.
Visible support profiles set striking accents, a line is visually
emphasised. Rectangular panels combined with different
lighting make extremely cost-effective, efficient lighting
possible and also offer many possibilities of visual
and functional interior design.
106
Tartan Grid
Tartan grid systems are designed for large rooms
in which a longitudinal and transverse sub-division is
required. Various partition walls can be easily installed
and removed under frames and enable individual
square or rectangular room designs. The grid effect
can be additionally emphasised with appropriate
colouring of the crossing boxes and trim strips.
Decorative accents can be set with pyramid or large
area panels or also emphasised with lights.
Vertical Baffles
Vertical baffle systems are the ideal combination of perfect
sound absorption and attractive design. This ceiling
system is particularly suitable for rooms with a high sound
level such as entrance halls, airports, restaurants or
machine rooms. Also with regard to additional functions
such as air conditioning, lighting etc., this aesthetic ceiling
cladding allows almost limitless design possibilities.
For more details on this product, please see page 26.
Open Cell Ceilings
CELLIO, Armstrong’s open cell metal ceiling, is suitable for
all types of areas and is available in a number of cell sizes.
The monolithic appearance of CELLIO is achieved by the
integration of the grid into the ceiling design.
This concept allows for unlimited design scope and flexible
functional benefits. Detailing at the junction of wall and ceiling
is a good example of this flexibility.
CELLIO is particularly ideal for refurbishing projects where
a 15 mm exposed grid is already in place or in large areas
where a perfect cell alignment is required.
Wall Cladding
The main advantages of the wall cladding systems
are the variety of designs and applications and the
simple assembly and disassembly. The system range is
characterised by their simple planning, versatile uses and
impressive appearance in any shape of room.
Areas of application: as acoustic elements and
architectural design elements.

DESCRIPTION
For timeless natural beauty and elegance – there’s simply nothing to
match it. Countless generations of building designers have turned
to wood to bring richness and texture to their creations. No other
material can provide the range of colours and patterns of this most
natural building material. No two pieces are ever identical - every
single piece is unique.
It can make a structure simple and elegant, sleek and modern,
classic yet cool - skilfully used it can create exactly the ambience
needed to make any space special.
Now Armstrong has harnessed the enduring beauty of wood in a
range of ceiling tiles, giving you an almost endless choice of high
performance linings for your building.
The Armstrong wood range – ceilings you’ll look up to.
Armstrong wood ceilings – your choice
Designers are increasingly choosing Armstrong wood ceilings
to provide an extra level of luxury for their buildings. In the US,
wood already accounts for one in five of all Armstrong specialty
ceiling installations – whilst in many other markets, our systemised
wood ceilings have quickly become an established option
amongst architects keen to bring quality and opulence to prestige
environments.
■
114
It’s not surprising when you see the benefits that Armstrong wood
ceilings have to offer:
• Style and elegance for any interior
• Wide choice of real wood veneer finishes and design formats
• Meet all performance requirements
• Easy-plan, easy-fit grid system solutions
• Natural materials – solvent-free and fully recyclable at the end of
life
• Engineered by Armstrong, the innovator of modern ceiling design
For looks that say something special about your interior - Armstrong
Wood Ceilings have the edge.
Armstrong wood ceilings are available in tiles and planks and in
laminate (Concealed, Vector, MicroLook and Board edge) for a
durable and more affordable option, or veneer (MicroLook edge),
where real wood gives a particularly prestigious, high-class solution.
Coloured suspension systems are available on request.
Our Wood Ceiling products are made with a medium density
fibreboard (MDF) or chipboard base material specially selected to
contain no allergic ingredients.
The surface is plain or perforated with an acoustical black tissue
fleece on the back and all surface finishes are protected using
solvent-free lacquers for long life.

CONDITIONS OF INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Wood tiles should be unpacked and stocked flat in an environment
that is closed and not humid. Wood tiles should always be moved
with care. Before installation, it is recommended to open the cartons
and stack the tiles flat for 3 to 8 days in the room where they will
be installed in order to stabilise the tiles in their future environment
and conditions of use. Possible dimensional variations in a humid
environment are those from typical wood-based tiles i.e. the differential
between the driest and the most humid conditions can be up to
5 mm/m. The installation of Wood tiles should take place during
the last phase of the job, in closed, and sometimes heated, rooms.
No additional work potentially increasing the level of humidity in the
room should be undertaken after the tiles are installed (concrete and
plasterboards should be dry). Wood tiles should never be installed
in rooms whose relative humidity is greater than 80% at 20°C.
The optimum installation conditions are reached when the room
temperature is between 12 and 24°C for a relative humidity between
45 and 70%. In rooms where relative humidity is kept below 45%
or above 70%, additional care should be given for installation.
Wood Veneer ceiling tiles are made with natural wood veneers.
As they are natural products, their colour and structure regularity
cannot be guaranteed. In order to obtain the best decorative effect, we
advise you to follow the points below:
1. Order all wood material at the same time.
2. Check the visual of all tiles before fitting.
3. Arrange them aesthetically with regard to their shade and grain.
4. Install the ceiling tiles accordingly.
With each order, it is recommended to allow for some extra tiles to
accommodate for visual variations, as it will be very unlikely that similar
looking tiles can be ordered later.

■
QUALITY
Suspension systems are manufactured for
Armstrong both by its joint venture company
WAVE (Worthington Armstrong Venture)
and through various alliances with other
companies who are regarded as specialists
in their fields of engineering. WAVE operates
on a global basis, and brings to its various
European operations world class practice

■
SERVICE
Armstrong suspension systems are
manufactured in three European plants,
strategically located to serve all our European
customers. Additionally, both Armstrong
and WAVE can draw upon their global
manufacturing capabilities for both speciality
products and manufacturing support.
In addition to WAVE’s manufacturing sites,
Armstrong stocks suspension systems in
distribution centres throughout Europe.
This allows our customers the convenience
of mixed product shipments, combining
suspension systems with other Armstrong
ceiling products, optimising bulk shipments
direct from their manufacturing locations.
■
THE SUSPENSION SYSTEMS RANGE
The Suspension Systems range includes a full range of solutions for all ceiling suspension requirements:
. General applications, a range of standard Prelude 35 mm, 24 mm and 15 mm grid systems, Bandraster and Prelude Sixty2 for longer spans.
. Designer options including the minimalist grid Silhouette, Interlude HRC (High Recycled Content), Microline and the Axiom range.
. Specific applications, for clean room and higher humidity environments (Corrosive Resistant Grid or Clean Room Grid).
. Perimeter trims and accessories, for most applications.
. Seismic accessory range, for seismic areas
We also include our comprehensive programme of special size options that is available in most ranges. A range of either stab or hook systems are
available to meet the mechanical preferences of the installer. To complete the portfolio we also offer a technical test programme that provides fire and
loading performance and environmental accreditation. Suspension systems are designed for use with a wide variety of Armstrong ceiling products,
mineral, soft, metal, wood and our special solutions.
The Armstrong suspension systems range is covered by fire reaction and fire resistance testing to meet all the European standards (like EN 13964).
You can find further information in the suspension systems mainline brochure on our website.

PRELUDE UNIVERSAL MAIN RUNNER
The Prelude Universal Main Runner supports the installation of either hook/butt cut or stab/joggled Cross Tees from one simple inventory
of Main Runners. The universal system is available in Peakform design in 35 mm, 24 mm and 15 mm widths. The Peakform Universal Main
Runners with Superlock clip provide a quick and easy assembled Main Runner to Main Runner/ bulb-to-bulb connection. Metric sized Main
Runners are slotted at 100 mm centres for more flexibility. Slots are machined to receive positive and accurate assembly of either Prelude
TL, Prelude TLX (hook installation) or Prelude XL2 (stab installation) Cross Tees. The staked-on Superlock clip allows for Main Runners to be
disconnected and reconnected laterally in low-clearance areas or in the middle of a room.

“HOOK” INSTALLATION
Prelude XL2 Cross Tees in 35 mm, 24 mm
and 15 mm widths feature an advance stab
system that locates with an audible “click”,
ensuring a solid installation at all times.
The stab end is precision stamped from
a separate piece of high grade steel
permitting an increased accuracy and
economy of production over the more
conventional integral forming of the Cross Tee
ends. The Cross Tees are inserted to the right
of each other through the Main Runner slots
and easily pushed home.
Prelude TL Cross Tees in 15 mm widths
feature an integrally formed hook nose.
This popular installation system has been a
feature of Armstrong suspension systems
for over 20 years and its proven ease of
assembly and precise butt cut joint has been
a favourite of installers. Cross Tee alignment
is ensured by locating the Cross Tee to the
right hand side of the adjoining section.
The patented TLX clip is a new highly
engineered staked-on hook detail designed for
24 mm cross tees.
Its unique steel-based composite material
and shape provide a stronger and level
connection, an improved fire performance
and an increased overall stability.
TLX Cross Tees are quicker and easier to cut

Cross Tees are inserted to the right of each
other through the Main Runner slots, the TLX

INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE
The following pages provide a general overview and outline information relating to the installation and maintenance
of Armstrong Ceiling Systems. For more detailed guidance and product specific information please consult our website
or contact Armstrong Technical Sales on 0800 371 849 (UK) / 1800 409002 (ROI) or at [email protected]
SITE CONDITIONS, STORAGE & HANDLING
It is the responsibility of the ceiling contractor
to ensure that materials delivered to the
installation site are safeguarded from the time of
purchase until the finished ceiling is handed over.
However, it is usually the main contractor who
is responsible for the conditions on site and so
both parties must be aware of the requirements
of suspended ceilings for flat, dry, clean and safe
storage conditions.
Armstrong packaging of ceiling tile and grid
varies from material to material, but all is
designed to withstand careful site handling.
However, poor or rough handling, rolling
or dropping of cartons on their corners
or edges may cause damage to the product or
the product to deteriorate, irrespective
of the material.
All cartons may be stacked on wooden pallets
and secured with shrink-wrapping
for transportation but when on the installation
site they should never be stacked higher
than when originally delivered to the site.
critical as an appreciable drop in the temperature
may create humidity conditions which could be
detrimental to the ceiling materials both installed
and uninstalled.
During winter months, heating of the jobsite may
be necessary and the use of ‘dry’ heating should
be considered because the burning of fossil fuels
produces additional water vapour. Increased
ventilation to eliminate the risk of condensation
may be appropriate and also in summer months
to control the temperature fluctuation due
to solar gain.
The use of thermal insulation on the back of
a ceiling tile will alter the temperature gradient
within a construction and its effect on the
position of the dew point must be considered. If
there is a risk of condensation, ventilation
of the ceiling void and the use a vapour control
layer between the suspended ceiling and the
insulation may be necessary.
Advice on these matters can be obtained from a
specialist thermal engineer.
Standards, COSHH and health & safety
regulations and the use of the correct personal
protective equipment (PPE).
Care is necessary when handling and installing
tiles, especially metal and soft fibre tiles, to
prevent finger marking of the surface from soiled
or greasy hands, and where appropriate, clean
cotton gloves should be worn.
Ceilings that are required to provide structural fire
protection must be installed in accordance with
the relevant fire test report (see fire resistance
page for further information).
the ceiling is being used to provide passive fire
protection to the building.
Attention must also be paid to ensuring that the
internal conditions are not allowed to exceed
those that the ceiling tiles are designed to
withstand. Heat build up due to solar gain may
need dispersing by ventilation to reduce the risk
of condensation occurring as the temperature
falls. The effect of insulation on the back of
the tile or in a roof construction also needs
consideration and sufficient ventilation may be
required to prevent surface condensation and a
vapour control barrier to control the effects
of surface or interstitial condensation.
Consideration should be given to the advice of
the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) regarding
the manual handling of heavy cartons. An
assessment should be made of any associated
risks and if necessary mechanical lifting
equipment should be used.
INSTALLATION CONDITIONS
Armstrong suspended ceilings are interior
finishes and the site conditions during installation
should reflect this.
Ceiling system components should be
stored for 24 hours before they are installed, in
the area in which they are to be fixed, within a
temperature range of 11º-35ºC.
The stability of the temperature range is
important as this can have a great affect
on the relative humidity within a space and
for products with lower humidity resistance in
particular, the stability of the temperature is
INSTALLATION
Installation of Armstrong ceiling tiles should
be conducted in the appropriate site and
environmental conditions as described above
and as per Armstrong’s manufacturer’s
recommendations. Due consideration should
be given to the relevant British and European
AFTER COMPLETION
Once a building is handed over to the client,
it is not always occupied at once.
In this situation heating and ventilation may
sometimes be decreased or switched off to save
energy costs. In these circumstances conditions
above and below the ceiling should be equalised
and it may be necessary to temporarily remove
tiles to facilitate this. This may not be possible if
MAINTENANCE, REPLACEMENT, REDECORATION & CLEANING
Armstrong mineral fibre tiles are marked on the
back for ease of identification and maintenance.
Maintenance on suspended ceilings should only
take place after the effect of the work
on the technical characteristics of the installation
has been fully considered.
Ceiling tiles should require no more maintenance
than a painted plasterboard ceiling, however,
when maintenance is necessary, certain
procedures should be followed to ensure that
the performance and appearance of the ceiling
is maintained.
Minor damage to mineral fibre tiles can
be repaired using commercially available fillers
and Armstrong touch-up paint, although due to
natural aging of the installation an exact colour
match may not be possible.
Similarly when replacing tiles, new material is
likely to introduce colour variation. This effect
can be substantially reduced by redecoration
of the entire ceiling, or by replacing all tiles in a
particular area and using the re-usable existing
tiles for refurbishment elsewhere.
Most ceiling tiles and grids can be redecorated,
however, consideration should be given to the
appropriate type of paint to be used and to
the effect on the reaction to fire and acoustic
performance. Redecoration by spraying is the
preferred method, using the minimum amount
of paint applied in an even manner. Ceiling tiles
should be removed from the grid and laid on a
flat surface prior to painting, whilst grid can be
repainted in situ, but with the tiles removed. Tiles
should only be moved or replaced once dry and
the grid must dry before replacing the ceiling
tiles. If a professional firm of decorators is used,
assurances should be sought that the necessary
performances will be maintained. It should
be noted that any repainting would invalidate
Armstrong’s warranty for the product.
Different ceiling tile materials have different
requirements for cleaning.
the relevant British and/or European Standards
and The Control of Substances Hazardous
to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002. When
ceilings are installed in accordance with these
instructions, no excessive dust or hazards
should be created. However, if excessive dust
is created, approved respiratory protection
complying with EN 449 FFP1 or FFP2 should be
worn. Such protection is deemed to be required
if the total weight of inhalable dust exceeds 5mg/
m3, or 2 fibres/ml, when averaged over an 8
hour TWA reference period.

MANUFACTURER’S RECOMMENDATIONS
Many specifications call for the ceiling to be installed in accordance with the “manufacturer’s recommendations”
and this approach is now adopted in BS EN 13964:2004 + A1:2006 “Suspended ceilings – Requirements and test
methods” which, within Annex A, refers to “Supplier’s instructions”. The following comments are given as a guide to
such requirements which should be consulted prior to installation. Where a specific point is not mentioned or for further
information on those that are, please contact Armstrong Technical Sales on 0800 371849 for UK / 1800 409002 for ROI
or [email protected]
NB BS 8290: Part 3 (1991) has now been withdrawn and superseded by BS EN 13964:2004 + A1:2006 but the advice it
contained may still be found useful.
1) Armstrong recommends that the ceiling
should be set out so that the layout is as
symmetrical as possible and that perimeter
tiles are in excess of ½ a module. In the event
of irregular shaped rooms or a dimensional
conflict the specifier shall indicate their
preference prior to installation.
2) Some Armstrong tiles exhibit
directionality in their face texture or pattern.
It is recommended practice that square
module tiles, with directional fissured face
patterns, are installed with the direction
of the pattern alternating from tile to tile,
creating a ‘chequerboard’ effect. For other
directional products, the specifier should
indicate if the pattern is to be linear, alternate
(chequerboard) or random in layout,
or to follow a specific design.
3) Installations required to give structural
fire protection must be installed in
accordance with the details shown in the
relevant fire test report, and supersede any
conflicting information contained with these
manufacturer’s recommendations.
4) Exposed grid systems should be installed
in the ‘ladder’ formation with main runners
at 1200mm centres (1200mm or 600mm
modules) and 1200mm cross tees spanning
between main runners at 600mm centres.
600mm cross tees then span between the
1200mm cross tees and run parallel to
main runners. The ‘H’ formation grid layout
(1200mm cross tees at 1200mm centres and
600mm cross tees perpendicular to main
runners) should not be used, as this will result
in a greater grid deflection from a given tile
load, unless intentionally specified and the
consequences understood. All Armstrong
loading information is based upon grid
installed in the ‘ladder’ formation.
142
5) The minimum cavity depth necessary
to install a modular suspended ceiling will
normally be determined by considerations
such as any service fittings, ducts and pipes
which are present or which will have to be
accommodated. For exposed grid lay-in tile,
which have to be lifted diagonally upwards
through the grid before being laid down onto
the grid flanges, a minimum clear height of
about 150mm is required. For Vector edged
tiles which are only engaged from below the
grid, or where there are no cavity services
present, then practical considerations of
handling and fixing short hangers will prevail.
6) Suspended ceiling grid systems are
primarily intended to support the distributed
load from the ceiling tiles, which is typically
between 1.2kg/m2 and 8.5kg/m2. This will
ensure a deflection of the grid, between
points of support, which is visually
acceptable.
7) The maximum distributed load that
Armstrong grid systems can support can be
found in the Armstrong Suspension Systems
brochure and is calculated based on the
Class 1 deflection criteria (table 6) of BS
EN 13964:2004 + A1:2006 (span/500,
but not greater than 4mm).
8) In certain instances it may be possible to
extend the centres of the hangers supporting
the main runners. This will be dependent
upon the type and the layout of the grid,
the weight of the ceiling tile and whether
additional loads are being supported by
the grid. See the Armstrong Suspension
Systems brochure.
9) The maximum weight of flange or bulb
supported service fittings, or the maximum
point loads that can be supported by
the ceiling grid will depend upon the type
and layout of the grid, and the weight
of the ceiling tile. Calculations for specific
circumstances can be obtained from
Armstrong Technical Sales.
10) Dynamic fittings, such as air diffusers
or grilles, should be independently supported
to ensure that vibration is not transferred
to the suspended ceiling system.
11) Other than very light weight halogen
fittings, spotlights, luminaires and other
service fittings should not be supported
directly onto the back of ceiling tiles,
otherwise damage or excessive deflection
could occur. A pattress or other suitable
method must be used to ensure that the load
is transferred back to the grid system.
The overall load of the tile, fitting and pattress
must not exceed the maximum load for the
grid system. Alternatively direct independent
suspension should be employed.
12) Where perimeter trims are to be fixed
to surfaces or substrates which may be liable
to shrinkage, such as timber or wood based
battens, allowance should be made
to prevent deformation or distortion of the
trim occurring.
13) Perimeter trims should be neatly jointed
at all external and internal angles. Overlapped
sections or ‘dummy’ mitres (the overlapped
lower section only mitred) are considered
acceptable methods. Butt mitred joints
should be specified prior to installation if
required.
14) Suspension wire must always be
mechanically pre-straightened prior to use
and should not be less than 2mm diameter.
Wire hangers should be straight and free from
kinks.
15) The maximum length of any wire
hanger is governed only by the ability
to pre-straighten it.
16) When ‘tying off’ wire hangers,
there should be at least 3 complete turns
of the wire forming a tight coil.
17) Suspension hangers should be vertical
or nearly vertical wherever possible. However,
a hanger can be used at up to 45º from
the vertical provided that there is a second
adjacent hanger up to 45º from the vertical
that opposes the lateral force of the first
hanger. Any rigid braces used to provide
lateral restraint should be less than 45º from
the horizontal.
18) Main runners should have a hanger within
150mm of joints between abutting main
sections.
19) It is generally considered good practice
to stagger main runner joints for aesthetic
reasons.
20) Any grid section (main runner or cross
tee) that bears onto the perimeter trim
requires support within 600mm, so that
excessive loads are not transferred onto
the trim. This dimension should be reduced
to 450mm or less if heavy overlay materials
are used or service fittings supported by the
tile and grid system are located near
the perimeter.
21) Armstrong Corrosion Resistant
Grid System should be specified where
atmospheric conditions regularly exceed 90%
relative humidity. Corrosion Resistant grid is
not recommended for environments where
condensation has the potential to form on
the grid itself i.e. where there is inadequate
thermal insulation and/or vapour control
layer in the ceiling void. Corrosive liquids
and cleaning materials should not be exposed
or applied directly to any grid system.
For specialist Armstrong ceiling products
which can be high pressure cleaned,
Corrosion Resistant grid would also be
appropriate.
22) Ceramaguard is hygroscopic,
and as such may absorb moisture from
the atmosphere (but without detriment
to the mechanical stability of the tile) in a high
humidity environment. The possible increased
weight of the tiles should be considered
in relation to the layout of the grid and
the possible need for 600mm main runner
centres and/or additional hangers.
23) At perimeters, two alternative details may
be considered for cut mineral fibre Tegular
and MicroLook tiles. If the face of the grid
and the perimeter trim are at the same level,
the tiles should be site reformed to the basic
rebated detail using appropriate sharp craft
tools. However, if the face of the tile and the
perimeter trim are at the same level (i.e. the
grid face is higher), then the tiles do not need
to be reformed, but the ends of the tees must
be supported. This can be achieved by the
use of the appropriate ‘shadowline’ perimeter
trim. Alternatively if a ‘flat’ trim is used the
end of the cut tees can be supported by the
use of Armstrong border clips or Armstrong
perimeter fill-in blocks which are also
designed to fill the gap between the perimeter
trim and the grid that is left between the tiles.
See the Armstrong Suspension Systems
brochure for details.
24) Reformed cut edges of Tegular and
MicroLook mineral and soft fibre tiles should
be hand decorated where the cut edge is
clearly visible. This is generally not necessary
at perimeters, where the cut tile edge cannot
easily be seen, unless specified prior to
installation.
25) For metal tiles, cut perimeter tiles must
secured to ensure the face of the metal
tiles sits evenly upon the perimeter trim.
This is normally achieved by the use of a
perimeter channel with border wedges or
extruded aluminium trims with cut tile spring
wedges. Cut tiles with a Premium B15 or
OP19 acoustic infill do not normally require
securing, providing they are correctly and
carefully cut with an appropriate high speed
jig or bandsaw.
26) Unless specifically accepted by the
specifier, pop rivets and screw heads should
not be visible.
27) Except for ceilings required to provide
structural fire protection or fire resistance,
hold-down or retaining clips are not normally
required unless specified prior to installation.
28) Armstrong will be pleased to provide
a list of specialist ceiling contractors that
have achieved OMEGA or GREEN OMEGA
status.

FIRE
REACTION TO FIRE
The harmonisation of technical standards
within Europe, and the integration of
EN13964 (Suspended ceilings – requirements
and test methods) into national legislation,
means that there is now one series of
harmonised European test methods and
classifications for the reaction to fire of
suspended ceilings.
As reaction to fire is one of the essential
safety requirements identified for suspended
ceilings, the Euroclass classification is one of
the mandatory elements on the CE mark for
suspended ceiling tiles and grids.
These new reaction to fire classifications, or
‘Euroclasses’, are made in accordance with
EN13501-1:2007.
The ‘Euroclasses’ replace the old national fire
reaction ratings for showing the performance
of ceilings in order to meet the Construction
Products Regulations and national building
regulation requirements for internal linings.
Each member state then sets the
performance level required for different areas
and building types within their
own building regulations.
The ‘Euroclasses’ rate from A1 through to
F, with A1 being the best reaction to fire
performance and F the worst.
Depending upon the reaction to fire test(s)
conducted, the rating may include an
additional classifications for smoke production
and flaming droplets.
Smoke and flaming droplets are regulated in
some European countries.
Smoke production is rated from s1
(the least smoke produced) to s3
(no limit to amount of smoke produced).
Flaming droplets is rated from d0
(no flaming droplets) to d2 (no limit
to flaming droplets).
STRUCTURAL FIRE PROTECTION
Throughout Europe, there is a requirement
for a building’s structure to be protected
from fire. This is primarily for the structure
to remain stable during a fire to allow the
occupants to escape and also to enable
fire fighters to work without threat of the
building’s collapse. The duration of the
required protection will usually depend upon
the height of, and location within, the building
(i.e. typical floor, basement, roof construction
etc), whether there is any active methods of
fire protection (sprinklers etc) and the type of
construction to be protected (steel beams,
timber or mezzanine floors etc).
A fire protecting suspended ceiling system is
one of several important methods of providing
the fire protection which fire degradable
elements of the structure require. Ceilings
can be used to enable a floor construction to
meet the duration of protection required by
the building regulations that it could
not necessarily provide on its own.
There are many national test methods for
establishing the structural fire protection
performance of a suspended ceiling system,
as well as several European norms which
are acceptable in most European countries.
The performance achieved during testing
will be classified in terms of the duration of
protection given, typically this in accordance
with EN13501-2:2007 for European tests.
However, there is not yet one single European
test method which is acceptable to all
member states.
Untested products may be assessed by
reference to the product attributes and
comparison to similar tested products,
provided this is supported by an assessment
report from a recognised fire expert and
should be provided with the base test
report that details how the product should
be installed to achieve the assessed
performance.
144
The location and type of various service
elements such as lighting fittings, smoke
detectors etc, are infinite and the designer
and installer must satisfy themselves that they
can be integrated without reducing the tested
performance of the ceiling system. This will
usually require a test report from the fitting
manufacturer or an assessment issued by
the fire authorities. Without these documents
the designer or installer may assume an
everlasting responsibility for the fire safety of
the building and occupants.
The complete construction and assembly
of the test installation is important to the
success of the test, and Armstrong test
many ceiling tiles for their structural fire
performance, but always on Armstrong grid.
There are many other details of the test
construction that must be understood and
adhered to. These include:
• main runner and hanger centres
• the type of top fixings and how the hangers
are attached to them
• the minimum depth of the ceiling void
• what % of the floor design load is tested
• whether ceiling tile hold-down clips were
used.
These details must be included in the
installation if the tested performance
is to be realised and they should be taken
into account when writing specifications for
ceilings intended to provide structural fire
protection.
The fire performance of floor structures
protected by Armstrong ceiling tile and grid
systems is given in the fire assessment
document 173816.
This document is based on a large number
of fire tests conducted on various Armstrong
ceiling tile and grid types. It provides an
assessment of the performances attainable
when various Armstrong tile and grid
systems are installed in accordance with the
appropriate base fire test and the permitted
installation variations from that base test.
The tables opposite give a summary
of the performances achievable as stated in
the assessment document and are correct at
the time of going to print.
As products may be modified or retested
it is essential that their validity is always
checked prior to installation. Therefore,
the current version of the assessment

ACOUSTICAL COMFORT
From performance to acoustical comfort
DID YOU KNOW...
Acoustical treatment is not always sound absorption.
The right acoustical environment is essential and the way to achieve this is to focus on:
Intelligibility
Confidentiality
Concentration
I want to be
understood
I do not want
to be overheard
I do not want
to be disturbed
INTELLIGIBILITY, CONFIDENTIALITY
AND CONCENTRATION
To meet acoustical regulations,
it is generally sufficient to provide the
performance measures in unoccupied
spaces, without office equipment
switched on. Acoustical regulations
usually recommend values to be
achieved for reverberation times (within
a space) and sound insulation (between
spaces or from outside the building).
This approach isn’t satisfactory any
more to meet the expectations
of occupants, in particular with
the development of open spaces
in offices and the increasing hearing
problems of students in the education
sector.
On a day-to-day basis, any activity
disturbs the initial acoustical balance,
as for example group discussions,
ringing phones, copier machines, music,
open windows or road traffic noise.
Occupants of an office, a classroom,
a shop, a hospital or any other space,
need a comfortable and healthy
environment to carry out their activity
under the best conditions.
The acoustic quality of a room
in a building is governed by major
design criteria which require close
monitoring:
■ Intelligibility
(I want to be understood),
■ Confidentiality
(I do not want to be overheard),
■ Concentration
(I do not want to be disturbed).
WHAT INFLUENCES PERFORMANCE?
The acoustical properties of mineral ceiling tiles vary depending upon the material,
surface and the combination of density, porosity and thickness.
For metal and wood tiles it depends on the perforation and the density, porosity
and thickness of the acoustic infill that influences the acoustic performance. The
following table shows the impact on acoustical performance when increasing each
of those parameters.
Sound
absorption
Density
Porosity
Thickness
Armstrong offers a wide range of materials, product densities and acoustic infills
combining the necessary acoustical performances with an extensive range of visuals
to meet customer aesthetic and acoustical demands.
The effect of acoustical control from ceilings on the occupants of spaces can be
summarised as follows:
Sound

Sound attenuation
and reduction

ACOuSTICAl TECHNICAl GlOSSARy
WEIGHTED SOUND ABSORPTION COEFFICIENT, w
WEIGHTED SOUND REDUCTION INDEX, Rw
A single-number rating for random incidence sound absorption
coefficients calculated by reference to EN ISO 11654. With this
method measured values obtained in accordance with EN ISO 354,
are converted into octave bands at 250, 500, 1000, 2000 and 4000Hz
and are plotted onto a graph. A standard reference curve is then
shifted towards the measured values in steps of 0.05 until a “best fit” is
obtained. The derived value of w will vary between 0.00 and 1.00 but is
only expressed in multiples of 0.05, eg w = 0.65.
A single-number rating of the laboratory measurement of (vertical)
airborne sound reduction of a suspended ceiling. It is determined by
reference to EN ISO 717-1 from measurements of sound reduction index
made in accordance with EN ISO 140-3.
SHAPE INDICATOR
With reference to EN ISO 11654, the calculated value of w may be
qualified by one or more letters (in brackets) to indicate if the product has
excess sound absorption at low (L), medium (M) or high (H) frequencies.
SOUND ABSORPTION CLASS
With reference to EN ISO 11654, the calculated value of w may
additionally be allocated into one of six descriptive classes in accordance
with the following table:
Sound absorption Class

WEIGHTED SUSPENDED CEILING NORMALISED LEVEL
DIFFERENCE, Dncw
A single-number rating of the laboratory measurement of room-to-room
(horizontal) airborne sound insulation of a suspended ceiling above
adjacent rooms sharing a common ceiling plenum. It is determined in
accordance with EN ISO 717-1 from measurements made in accordance
with EN 20140-9. Note: EN 20149-9 has now been withdrawn and
superseded by EN ISO 10848-2. (see Dnfw), although Dncw test results still
continue to be valid.
WEIGHTED SUSPENDED CEILING NORMALISED
FLANKING LEVEL DIFFERENCE, Dnfw
A single-number rating of the laboratory measurement of room-toroom (horizontal) airborne flanking sound transmission of a suspended
ceiling above adjacent rooms sharing a common ceiling plenum. It is
determined in accordance with EN ISO 717-1 from measurements made
in accordance with EN ISO 10848-2. This has now superseded EN
20149-9. (see Dncw).
148
RAIN NOISE SOUND INTENSITY LEVEL, LI
The laboratory measurement of the sound intensity in a room below a
roof construction when subjected to rainfall. It is determined by reference
to EN ISO 140-18:2006 – laboratory measurement of sound generated
by rainfall on building elements. The roof’s performance can be tested
with or without a suspended ceiling beneath. The intensity of the
rainfall tested can be selected from the options given in the standard. A
combined A-weighted single-number (LIA) can also be determined.
Unlike Dnfw and Rw data, where the higher the value the better the
insulation provided, the lower the intensity value (weighted LIA) the better
the insulation performance of the ceiling and roof combination.
SOUND ATTENUATION
A term used in relation to the horizontal transmission of sound through
a suspended ceiling above adjacent rooms sharing a common ceiling
plenum.
SOUND REDUCTION
A term used in relation to the vertical transmission of sound through a
suspended ceiling.
NOISE REDUCTION COEFFICIENT, NRC
A single-number descriptor of random incidence sound absorption
coefficients. Defined in ASTM C423 as the arithmetical average, to the
nearest multiple of 0,05, of the measured sound absorption coefficients
for the four one-third octave band centre frequencies of 250, 500, 1,000
and 2,000 Hz.
SABINE / EQUIVALENT ABSORPTION AREA (EAA)
A Sabine is a measure of the total sound absorption provided by discrete
objects (canopies, screens, furniture, etc) when installed in an architectural
space. Because these types of absorbers have more than one surface and
may be irregular in form, it is not meaningful to assign sound absorption
coefficients to them. Hence the Equivalent Absorption Area per unit
(measured in Sabines) is preferred to characterise the absorption provided
by an individual ‘space absorber’.

1) All SRI tests have been conducted in an independent third party quality assured laboratory in accordance with EN ISO 140-3 with the ceiling suspended horizontally between two vertical transmission suites.
Mineral tiles were 600x600 Board (square) edge in a Prelude T24 grid.
2) Rw values are determined in accordance with EN ISO 717-1.
3) Armstrong conducts extensive and regular acoustic tests on its ceiling tiles and planks. Inevitably slight variations occur over a range of results for the same product.
The results above do not necessarily represent the highest achieved but indicate values that can be consistently and confidently offered.
Rain Noise - The acoustic performance of Armstrong ceilings with a lightweight roof construction
EN ISO 140-18:2006 is a test method for determining the sound intensity level of
a radiating surface due to rainfall. Armstrong tested a lightweight roof construction,
with ‘heavy’ intensity rain as defined in the standard, and then re-tested with a
suspended ceiling below. Different ceiling tiles were tested and the results are
shown in the table below. The performance values given below show the intensity
of sound radiating into the room below the roof (and ceiling) constructions.
Therefore, unlike Dnfw and Rw data, where the higher the value the better insulation

with Premium B15
provided, the best performing ceiling tiles are those which have the lowest intensity
levels, as less sound energy has penetrated into the room below. The results
shown give the combined performance of the roof and ceiling constructions. Any
change in the roof construction performance will affect the combined roof and
ceiling performance. We have therefore shown the improvement in dB that each of
the ceiling tiles provided compared to the roof construction on it’s own.

1) All tests have been conducted in an independent third party quality assured laboratory in accordance with EN ISO 140-18(2006).
2) The one-third octave band intensity values given are unweighted measurements in dB.
3) The roof construction was a 158mm deep profiled steel liner tray with 200mm insulation and an aluminium standing seam waterproof membrane.
4) The ceiling void depth between the top of the liner tray and the reverse of the ceiling tiles varied between 400mm and 700mm due to the pitch of the roof.
5) Armstrong conducts extensive and regular acoustic tests on its ceiling tiles and planks. Inevitably slight variations occur over a range of results for the same product.
The results above do not necessarily represent the highest achieved but indicate values that can be consistently and confidently offered.

ATElIER By ARMSTRONG
A service designed to take the relationship between
architect/designer and building interior solutions provider
to unprecedented levels.
A peerless portfolio of materials (mineral, metal, wood,
resin and fabric) and systems (including TECH ZONE which
guarantees the integration of services such as lighting, air
handling, loudspeakers and chilled beams) has enabled
the Atelier team to prove its creative flair and deliver some
stunning and technically challenging projects.
COFUNDS, WITHAM ESSEX
This stunning refurbishment includes twenty
OPTIMA circle canopies as well as bespoke
AxIOM Knife Edge canopies with ulTIMA Sl2

PADDINGTON STATION, LONDON
Some 300m2 of Armstrong’s B-H 300 linear perforated metal plank system
were installed with a low-smoke acoustlc fleece on Paddington’s low-level
concourse. This was complemented on the high-level concourse, north
entrance and taxi deck by 1200m2 of Armstrong’s V-P 500 vertical linear
metal baffles in bespoke demountable 15kg modules of 1200 x 600mm to
ease installation and maintenance as well as accommodating an
anti-vermin and bird mesh panel.
The same V-P 500 aesthetic was carried through to platforms 15 and 16
but here the system was a lighter aluminium extrusion rather than steel and
the 500m2 baffle modules using a bespoke grid with locked access
panels were also angled at 45° over the tracks to help deflect noise away
from the walkways.

OuR COMMITMENT TO RECyClING
END-OF-LIFE RECYCLING PROGRAMME - NO MINIMUM QUANTITIES
At the end of a ceilings useful life,
the Armstrong End-Of-Life Recycling
Programme provides an opportunity
to divert the ceiling tiles from the uK’s
dwindling landfill capacity.
In addition to our own tiles, we will now
recycle ALL mineral fibre ceiling tiles
– making ceiling recycling easier than
ever. Armstrong will provide pallets upon
request and the ceiling tiles must be
stacked neatly on the pallets and
be made safe for transport.
Armstrong will arrange free collection
from site using our existing transport
network. A forklift and sufficient space
on site is required to load the material
onto the Armstrong transport.
Tiles are then taken back to the
Armstrong manufacturing plant in
Gateshead to be 100% recycled back
into new ceiling tiles.
This End-of-Life programme has been
used on many projects including 236
Grays Inn Road, Farnborough Airshow
and the Olympic Media Centre.
Contact our Recycling helpline
on 0800 371 849 (UK) /
1800 409 002 (RoI) or e mail us at
[email protected]
to check if your project meets the
requirements.
OFF-CUT RECYCLING PROGRAMME
The Armstrong Off-Cut Recycling
Programme has been developed in
response to customer demand and
is designed to enable installation waste
from ceiling off-cuts to be recycled.
This offers recycling opportunities
to larger new-build projects, using
acceptable Armstrong and non
Armstrong tiles, in addition to
refurbishment projects already serviced
by the Armstrong End-Of-Life Recycling
Programme. Like the End-Of-Life
scheme, Armstrong offer a free collection
service, however, the logistics are more
complicated due to the installation
timescale and storage requirements,
so the site contractors is critical in the
co-ordination of the process.
Armstrong will provide suitable bags
for the sub contractor to fill with ceiling
tile off-cuts. Once sufficient material is
gathered to fill a truck, Armstrong will
collect the bags from site as a
‘back-haul’ collection (minimising the
environmental impact of transportation)
to be 100% recycled back into new
ceiling tiles. This Off-Cut programme
has already been a success at University
Hospital, Birmingham (see case study
opposite) and is currently being used on
several other major projects including
Peterborough, Tameside, Salford & Hope
Hospitals and and New South General
Hospital, Glasgow.
Jim Duffy (Head of Environment
and Quality), Balfour Beatty
Construction Northern,
“This major project identified ceiling
tile cut offs as an item that would
be unacceptable to send to landfill.
The project pushed the boundaries
with Armstrong and Titan and all three
parties agreed to trial the recycling
scheme. Having overcome some
initial challenges in the first year, the
trials success and failures have been
reviewed and actions put in place
to improve the volume of recycled
material in the second year of the trial.
Having the commitment to trial the
scheme on a non contractual basis
was a great step forward. Committing
to improve the recycling process is
a great testimony to all three parties.
The challenge for the future is
making this the norm within the three
businesses.”
WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR RECYCLED TILES?
Where do they go?
Armstrong’s mineral fibre ceiling tile
manufacturing plant in Gateshead.
154
What happens to them once they
arrive there?
They are screened for contamination
and then broken up into smaller pieces.
How are these then made into
new ceiling tiles?
This ‘dry-broke’ is added to other raw
materials and combined together to
create the mixture
used to manufacture
new wet-felt mineral
fibre ceiling tiles.
ARMSTRONG COOlZONE
Armstrong CoolZone is an eco-friendly ceiling system that helps
to reduce a building’s energy costs at the same time as they
maximise occupier comfort.

CoolZone incorporates BASF Micronal phase change material into Armstrong’s
plain metal ceiling tiles. This material – microscopic polymer capsules containing
a wax storage medium - is embedded in gypsum and then encased in the metal
tile. On heating during the day and cooling at night, the wax melts and solidifies. In
this way the internal temperature is regulated, ensuring a stable and comfortable
environment in which to work, whether it is commercial, retail, healthcare or
educational buildings.
Day
Armstrong CoolZone improves thermal
comfort and contributes to the intelligent
energy management and commercial
success of a building in a number of
ways:
• It reduces or eliminates the need for
air conditioning - in tests, the CoolZone
tiles delayed the onset of air conditioning
by approximately four to five hours in
an average office. Not only can this
save around 40% of the HVAC energy
costs and reduce peaks in demand
for air conditioning but it can also help
to improve the thermal comfort for the
occupants.
Night
• It is a passive solution requiring no
energy that is easy to incorporate into
existing buildings and is therefore ideal
for renovation and refurbishment.
• It is a flexible solution that can be
moved within rooms to deal with areas of
high heat load, from room to room, and
can even be switched from building to
building.

DEFINITION
of technical performance icons
Fire reaction
National Building Regulations (where applicable) require that
buildings meet the appropriate Euroclass fire reaction performance
depending upon the area of application. Armstrong products have
been tested to the harmonised European fire reaction standards and
meet the minimum performance criteria. Many Armstrong products
have also been tested for their fire resistance performance under
various floor constructions. See page 144 for more information on
how ceilings can create a safer environment
Light Reflectance
High levels of light reflectance from suspended ceilings can contribute
significantly to maintaining the correct levels of illumination for all
interior environments, as well as helping to reduce excessive electrical
energy consumption. Armstrong conducts extensive tests of light
reflectance on a wide range of its products, in accordance with
EN ISO 7724-2 and 3 (as specified in EN 13964), by third party
accredited laboratories. The light reflectance values indicated on each
product data page are as determined by these tests.
Acoustic Performance
The occupant of a space, be it an office, a classroom, a shop,
or any similar environmental needs:
• Intelligibility – to hear and to be understood
• Confidentiality – to not be overheard
• Concentration – to not be disturbed
The optimum acoustic climate will be obtained with the right
combination of sound absorption and sound attenuation.
See page 146 for more information on how acoustics can create
a better environment.
Anti-Microbial Performance
The control of bio-contamination is essential in the healthcare sector,
especially in hospitals and clinics. Armstrong ceilings do not favour
the development of fungi/mould or yeast and the products can be
used in any general area.
Sound Attenuation
Is the control of horizontal sound transmission through a suspended
ceiling and common void located above adjacent spaces.
Sound Absorption Class
A single-number rating for random incidence sound absorption
coefficients as calculated by reference to EN ISO 11654.
Thermal Conductivity
The ever increasing commitment to energy conservation, dictates
that buildings should be as energy efficient as is compatible with their
function, use and as specified in national building regulations. Interior
building products which can form part of the external structure, such
as suspended ceilings beneath a roof construction, can contribute to
minimising the loss of heat to the exterior by reference to their thermal
conductivity values. Armstrong conducts extensive tests of thermal
conductivity on a wide range of its products, in accordance with
EN 12667 (as specified in EN 13964) and ISO 8301, by third party
accredited laboratories. The thermal conductivity values indicated
on each product data page are as determined by these tests.
Sound Reduction
Is the control of vertical sound transmission through a suspended
ceiling located above a space.
Scratch Resistance
Superior level of surface scratch resistance, evaluated with the Hess
rake test.
Air Quality
Armstrong offer a number of specific tile and grid solutions to limit
the number of airborne particles in a clean room environment. These
products are tested against ISO 14644-1.
Sound Absorption
Is the control of reflected sound, provided by the suspended ceiling,
within a space.
Class A
Rain Noise
Is the intensity of sound (LIA) generated by rainfall on building
elements, such as lightweight roof constructions, which radiates into
the room below.
Humidity Resistance
Ceiling installations are facing more and more demanding humidity
conditions such as fast track programmes, buildings with intermittent
heating and cooling, areas with a high concentration of people,
structures which are open to the exterior environment, etc. To meet
these requirements Armstrong offer a wide range of standard
products suitable for installation in conditions of up to 95% and 99%
relative humidity, as well as specialist products which excel in extreme
conditions of up to 100% relative humidity.
Product Handling & Durability
Frequent ceiling tile removal, typically in areas where building service
equipment is located, means that a higher level of product durability
and resistance to handling may be desired. Products in this category
provide enhanced durability performance.
Recycled Content
Armstrong products are produced using a variety of recycled
raw materials. The recycled content of individual products, as shown
in our literature, is calculated in accordance with ISO 14021:2004.

See more details on page 141.
Air Leakage
The cavity above a suspended ceiling may be used as part of the mechanical
air distribution system, when it is used as a supply or extract plenum, and the
air pressure in the plenum will be either positive or negative in comparison to the
pressure in the room below. Similarly for ‘Clean Room’ applications, where it is most
important to prevent the ingress of airborne dust contaminants, the room will be at
positive pressure to the surrounding areas. Alternatively, to escape the egress
of pathogens the room may be kept at a lower pressure relative to the surrounding
areas. In these situations, it is necessary to know how much air leakage occurs
through the ceiling system as a result of the pressure differential. Armstrong
conducts extensive tests of air leakage on a wide range of its products, in
accordance with EN 12114 and EN ISO 13829, by third party accredited
laboratories. Please contact us for further details of these results.
Air Flow
When using Metal perforated suspended ceilings, the cavity above may be used
as part of the mechanical air distribution system when it is used as a supply
plenum. With this arrangement the air pressure in the plenum is always positive in
comparison to the pressure in the room below. Specific tiles can be selected as
open (active), and these will become air diffusers, while the remaining tiles will have
their perforations blocked (inactive). In this way the air flow supply volume to the
room can be controlled and balanced dependent upon the pressure differential and
the air change requirements.
Armstrong conducts extensive tests of air flow on a range of its more common
Metal products, in accordance with EN 12114 and EN ISO 13829, by third party
accredited laboratories. Please contact us for further details of these results.
CE MARKING
CE stands for Conformité Européenne, which
translated literally, means “European Conformity”.
The CE mark is a products “passport” for entry
into the EEA (European Economic Area) and
indicates that the product complies with the
requirements of the applicable European Directive.
For construction products the European Directive
was the Construction Products Directive (89/106/
EEC), however, this has been replaced by the
Construction Products Regulations (305/2011/EU)
which came into full force on 1st July 2013.
The CPR states that the construction works
as a whole and in their separate parts must
be fit for their intended use, and subject to
normal maintenance, they must satisfy the basic
requirements for construction works which are:
• Mechanical resistance and stability;
• Safety in case of fire;
• Hygiene, health and the environment;
• Safety and accessibility in use;
• Protection against noise;
• Energy economy and heat retention;
• Sustainable use of natural resources.
The essential characteristics for specific
construction products are laid down in
harmonised technical specifications and for
suspended ceilings these are defined in
EN 13964 Suspended Ceilings – Requirements
and Test Methods.
This product standard identifies the essential
characteristics for the different types of suspended
ceiling components and determines how they
must be tested and classified. It also indicates
how the manufacturer must declare the products
performance and ensure that their products
maintain these levels of performance on an
ongoing basis. This is achieved by the issuing of
a Declaration of Performance, a key document
allowing CE marking of the product.
Most Armstrong products are Assessment and
Verification of Constancy of Performance system
1, which means that the declared performance
is confirmed by an independent notified body
and validated by a Certificate of Constancy of
Performance.
