Armstrong CAD Components
CAD components are available three dimensional view as well as system cross section in both dwg and pdf formats.
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.
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.
Armstrong Ceiling Solutions has simplified its recycling scheme
The pioneer of ceiling recycling schemes, Armstrong Ceiling Solutions, has fine-tuned its award-winning* programme to make it as simple and as accessible as possible.
It is now even easier for contractors to reduce their environmental impact and divert waste from landfill which also saves them money from the subsequent taxes as well as from skips and transportation costs.
All contractors are now required to do is simply take down the old Armstrong acoustic mineral ceiling tiles** and stack them on pallets. In partnership with the local distributor, Armstrong will arrange collection free of charge*** and the old tiles will be 100% recycled into new ceiling tiles at the company's production facility in Gateshead.
The scheme for the UK and Ireland, which has been in place since 2003, enables Armstrong to minimise its impact on the environment by not only diverting its old products from landfill but also producing mineral ceiling tiles with even higher post-consumer recycled content, currently up to 82%.
As well as the support it gets from distributors, Armstrong has also developed a "green" branch of its Omega network of approved sub-contractors, specifically for those installers with proven recycling expertise .. and they claim that as well as saving them landfill tax it also makes then more attractive for main contractors to use.
Armstrong's recycling programme for demolition, construction and renovation schemes has saved 15 million m2 of old ceiling tiles globally and diverted 61,000 tonnes of waste from landfill. And with 2,000m2 of recycled ceiling tiles equating to 7.6 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill, that is a 14,000 kWh saving on energy.
Projects have included the headquarters of main contractor Kier Construction, the temporary beach volleyball venue at Horse Guards Parade in London, and the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow.
A member of the UK Green Building Council, Armstrong also a partner in the Ceilings Sustainability Partnership, a working party of the AIS (Association of Interior Specialists) technical committee, which delivers on the actions within the Mineral Wool Ceiling Tile Resource Efficiency Action Plan (REAP). The REAP plan is intended to help the sector reduce the amount of mineral wool ceiling tiles going to landfill.
Armstrong recycling case studies also feature as WRAP exemplars, including Birmingham University Hospital where almost 43 tonnes of ceiling tiles were diverted from landfill and an estimated 19.5 tonnes of embodied CO2 were offset.
A new recycling programme leaflet, which has all the criteria information and steps to follow, is available from https://www.armstrongceilingsolutions.co.uk/en-gb/performance/sustainable-building-design/recycling-programmes.

Additionally, products can be searched by performance criteria such as acoustics, light reflectance, humidity and VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions, all of which contribute to building users’ well-being.
Users can access technical documentation and resources including data sheets, installation and warranty files, CAD drawings and BIM objects through the ‘Technical Library’ and get added inspiration from the latest images, videos and case studies in the ‘Project Gallery’ area.
