Optima L canopy range launched by Armstrong Ceilings

05 November 2013

In line with the trend for exposed soffits, a designer canopy system that is said to combine acoustics and light reflectance with cost-effectiveness has been launched by interior solutions provider Armstrong Ceilings

The Optima L Canopy range has, it is said, also been enhanced with the addition of two circular options (800mm and 1200mm) to complement one square (1200mm x 1200mm) and a small (900mm x 1800mm) and a large (2400mm x 1200mm) rectangular option.

''Quick to install through spiral anchors under plasterboard ceilings, existing grid systems or exposed concrete soffits in either new spaces or existing areas, the 40mm thick mineral panel is white on all six surfaces for continuity of visual,'' the company says.

Because sound is absorbed from both its front and back surfaces, the Optima L Canopy claims to give greater sound absorption than a continuous ceiling of the same visible surface area, providing between 1.00 and 5.75 sabines of sound absorption per piece, calculated as an average of 500-4000 Hz (EN ISO 354:2003), depending on its size.

Manufactured from 80% recycled content and with 87% light reflectance to minimise reliance on artificial light, the panels are said to be fire resistant to Euroclass B-s1, d0 and resistant to 90% relative humidity.

This level of performance, combined with their aesthetics, makes them suitable for new-build and refurbishment applications in the commercial, retail, leisure, education and healthcare sectors.
