Acoustic Solutions

Armstrong can provide product specifications for a complete range of acoustic solutions (Intelligibility, Concentration and Confidentiality) such as mineral, wood, metal tiles and canopies to invisible in-ceiling speaker systems.

We also have a number of useful acoustic tools on our acoustic micro site. A ‘reverberation simulator’ which compares the different reverberation times of various tiles to help specifiers make the best choice for their desired sound quality and a ceiling selector, complete with in-situ tile images, to assist in making decisions about style and material. For further acoustic solutions visit www.acousticalceilings.co.uk

Sustainable Solutions

Armstrong sustainable innovations include the following recycling schemes:

  • End Of Life (EOL) Recycling Scheme - Armstrong offers a free collection programme for refurbishment / strip out projects anywhere in the UK. The ceiling tiles are 100% recycled into the mix and are processed into new ceiling tiles.
  • Off Cut Recycling Scheme (OCR) - Off-cut ceiling tiles from new ceiling installations are stored on site in specially supplied bags and collected by Armstrong to be recycled into new ceiling tiles.
  • New Ceilings - All Armstrong metal ceilings are recyclable and contain up to 30% recycled material. Mineral Ceilings can contain up to 82% recycled

Armstrong Ceilings was the first European mineral tile manufacturer to win Cradle to Cradle® certification for ceiling systems that comprise high recycled content to start. It also helped pioneer ceiling recycling worldwide. Its two schemes – for ceiling off-cuts and for tiles at the end of their life divert increasingly large amounts of waste from landfill every year.

Orange Armstrong Ceilings help the sun rise on a regeneration first

Orange Armstrong Ceilings help the sun rise on a regeneration first

Orange ceiling and wall systems by Armstrong feature on a flagship office building.

Ceiling and wall systems by Armstrong have provided form AND function for an award-winning Grade A office building at the heart of one of the largest regeneration projects in the UK.

Armstrong's R-H 200 standard perforated metal hook-on planks with acoustic inlay within a concealed grid, were specified by regular Armstrong users Falconer Chester Hall Architects for the feature ceiling of the atrium of the Kingsgate building at Birkenhead in Wirral Waters which was built at a cost of £11.4 million.

They are complemented by Armstrong's W-H 1000 standard perforated metal wall system on the four-storey walls, hooked on in a vertical brickwork pattern to match the ceiling. Both of these systems were supplied by Armstrong in bespoke sizes to aid installation ... and in bright orange!

The metal tiles in the atrium are complemented by Ultima+ OP Tegular mineral tiles and Ultima+ SL2 planks in the open-plan offices and circulation areas. This ceiling system (and the suspension grid too) is Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certified in line with Kingsgate's BREEAM "Excellent" rating.

Manufactured with up to 64% recycled content, the Ultima+ range is available in three core densities that allow specifiers to engineer sound absorption and attenuation for optimum acoustic performance - standard Ultima+ giving medium density, Ultima+ OP giving low density (both of these variables were used at Kingsgate) and Ultima+ dB giving high density, up to 41 dB.

Stephen Fieldsend of Falconer Chester Hall said the Armstrong systems were specified to reduce acoustics in the open plan office areas which serve as the core business for The Contact Company in its role as a contact centre and in the main atrium with its feature wall and ceiling.

"We have worked with Armstrong continually on office developments. On this one particularly the Armstrong materials interface fantastically well with the other materials used on the project. We had continual help from Armstrong for the visual aesthetics to the main atrium space," said Mr Fieldsend.

Their brief had been to design an office building of almost 5,000m2 that would set a standard for future development within the regeneration area and also meet the aspirations of both the developer (Longmeadow Estates) and their prospective client.

Flexible open-plan office spaces allow greater flexibility for the call centre which takes up three of the four storeys, with offices and meeting rooms on the top floor.

While its design concept references Liverpool's past and the trading vessels that once negotiated the waters on its doorstep, the building remains forward focused on sustainability.

A heavily glazed façade reduces the building's reliance on artificial light and this element is further helped by Armstrong's Ultima+ tiles which feature an even brighter whiter smoother surface that gives 87% light reflectance to help achieve 16% cost savings compared with indirect lighting*.

FCH added: "The building has transformed a plot of empty derelict land into a modern, environmentally friendly office development, having been designed to meet the BREEAM Excellent standard for sustainability. All specified materials have significant green credentials.

"It has been described as a `strategic flagship development', and is the new home of one of Wirral's leading employers - helping to secure their future in the locality and providing a statement of confidence in a new enterprise zone. Another indication of its success is that it was finished on budget and two weeks early, demonstrating a rigorous approach to providing value for money and to construction timetables."

Built on former dockland in less than a year by Eric Wright Construction of steel frame and concrete floors, the building's ceiling and wall systems were installed over three months by a team of eight from specialist sub-contractor CLM Drylining.

Kingsgate (formerly the Tower Wharf project) is one of the first flagship schemes to be constructed within the 500-acre Wirral Waters regeneration scheme, part of the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone which was one of the first four locations established by the Government designed to attract investment and accelerate growth.

The £10 billion development comprises two schemes led by the Combined Authorities and local authorities - Wirral Waters and Liverpool Waters. Located on either side of the River Mersey at Liverpool's famous docklands, the two projects are among the largest regeneration schemes in the UK.

Kingsgate won Best Commercial Building in the 2016 North West RICS awards which said: "This high-quality office development, built on a former derelict land site, has added much-needed Grade A office accommodation to the Wirral Enterprise Zone and brought around 400 jobs to the area. Judges praised the project team — Longmeadow Estates, Eric Wright Construction and Falconer Chester Hall — for kick-starting the Wirral Waters Regeneration Project with such an exemplary building whose design echoes the shipping heritage of the area."

TechZone™ from Armstrong Ceilings is now simpler to use

September 2016

TechZone™ from Armstrong Ceilings is now simpler to use

Armstrong Ceilings' TechZone™ system has been enhanced

Armstrong Ceilings has further simplified its ground-breaking TechZone™ system, which was the industry's first easy-to-specify-and-install ceiling solution with integrated technical services, to be offered as a standard solution.

TechZone™, which was pioneering when it was launched in 2009, is now available as four standard layouts which easily organise lighting, air diffusers and returns into 100mm and 150mm wide technical zones.

A range of compatible fixtures from Armstrong's partner companies for the building services elements (Trox for air diffusers and XAL and Zumtobel for lighting) have also been prequalified for fit and finish to give a clean, monolithic look using standard ceiling panels and suspension systems.

All specifiers have to do is design the layout from either Armstrong's CAD/Revit library or their own imagination, then choose the field panels, technical panels, suspension systems and perimeter treatments.

Field panels are Armstrong's Ultima+ and Ultima+ OP, Perla and Perla OP 0.95 and Optima mineral tiles and planks with Microlook 90 or SL2 edge profiles. These tiles and planks deliver environmentally and acoustically as Perla OP 0.95 was the first mineral tile in the world to be Cradle to Cradle certified, the Ultima+ range was the first mineral ceiling tile range in the world to be Cradle to Cradle certified, and the suspension system - the Prelude 15 XL2 grid - is now also Cradle to Cradle certified, making the complete system (tiles and grid) the ultimate green ceiling system. In addition, Perla OP 0.95, Ultima+ OP and Optima all deliver to sound absorption Class A.

The improved TechZone™ system has enabled Armstrong to meet the growing trend for linear lighting.

At the same time, Armstrong has teamed up with XAL Lighting to launch the On Centre linear lighting solution. It makes it even easier for architects and specifiers to create inspiring ceiling designs with higher ceiling heights, zero plenum interference and on-centre continuous or non-continuous layouts.

The unique solution is designed to be installed as a full new system but it can also be retrofitted to existing 600mm by 600mm ceiling modules to bring an even cleaner monolithic visual to open and closed-plan spaces in buildings such as offices, schools, hospitals and retail outlets.

The integrated system allows the high-performance XAL Leno Grid Led luminaire to be installed from below to eliminate the requirement for ceiling re-work when it is specified with factory-finished Armstrong ceilings panels (Ultima+, Ultima+ OP and Perla OP 0.95) and the Prelude 15 XL2 suspension system. It also integrates with Axiom pre-engineered perimeter systems and transitions and can be incorporated into canopies.

Architects and designers simply follow the TechZone™ specification phases of choosing a standard layout or creating their own, then choosing their panels, suspension systems, perimeter treatment and accessories. Armstrong's 600mm by 600mm mineral tiles are typically used throughout, with the 600mm by 550mm brought in when there is a linear light to fit. Lighting strips can be as long as 2,400mm.

The new premium system gives an ultra-contemporary visual with the narrow 100mm linear lighting centred on the grid using standard ceilings and suspension systems to create custom looks. The lighting goes between and parallel to the grid main runners so only requires an additional hanger for installation, making it as quick and easy to install as standard systems.

TechZone™ incorporating linear lighting has its own dedicated CAD drawings available from Armstrong's Architectural Specialities office and is covered by Armstrong's 30-year system warranty*.
