Ceiling systems from the American company Armstrong are most often found in modern office interiors. However, due to the unique technical characteristics, they are suitable for the decoration of a variety of rooms.
Initially, Armstrong suspended ceiling was created just for finishing offices. But soon a presentable appearance, combined with ease of installation and low cost made this type of ceiling structures extremely popular.
Armstrong type ceiling is a modular suspension system, which consists of a supporting frame and facing panels. This device allows you to solve several problems at once, including hiding the defects of the room and various types of communications.
There are several classes of Armstrong suspension systems, depending on the type of construction and additional characteristics.
Armstrong designer ceilings allow you to embody a variety of interior design ideas. Plates for such ceilings can be made of polycarbonate, wood, steel, glass, etc. For heavy glass plates or stained ceilings, fixing systems with increased strength are used that can withstand heavy loads.
The panels can have different colors (including black), a single-color coating or pattern, a matte or glossy surface, texture, perforation and embossing. One of the popular options is Armstrong's mirrored ceiling.
It is important to bear in mind that Armstrong's ceiling does not allow creating a curved surface, which may limit the possibility of implementing some design solutions.
The standard set of accessories includes the following elements:
- wall profiles;
- load strips;
- longitudinal and transverse profiles;
- suspension system;
- parts for fasteners;
- decorative plates.
The main advantage that Armstrong-type suspended ceilings provide is the ability to place various communications under the ceiling panels. The mobility of the harness always gives access to them for routine inspection or repair.
