Armstrong® Ceiling and Wall Solutions has introduced Tectum® DesignArt™ ceiling and wall panels, a new portfolio of 46 mix-and-match sustainable, acoustical panels that transform interior spaces by combining texture, shapes, linear designs, patterns, and colors.
The new portfolio includes Tectum DesignArt Shapes, which features 30 standard shaped panels for direct attachment to ceiling and walls, and Tectum DesignArt Lines which features eight standard precision-routed linear designs for direct attachment to ceilings and walls. The same eight linear designs are also featured on tegular ceiling panels.
Available in 24 new nature-inspired colors as well as unpainted natural, the portfolio features over 100 variations of pre-designed patterns with unlimited customization possibilities. The ability to mix DesignArt Lines with DesignArt Shapes offers one-of-a-kind design opportunities. All direct-attach panels in the portfolio are made to work together. Precision routing of lines allows for seamless connections between different panel face designs. Color-coordinated suspension systems are also available.
Made from sustainably harvested Wisconsin aspen trees to help bring nature inside and enhance biophilic design, Tectum DesignArt panels are part of the Armstrong Sustain® portfolio and meet the highest sustainability compliance standards in the industry today. The ceiling panels also feature UL® Certified acoustic performance and are part of the Armstrong CleanAssure™ portfolio of cleanable, disinfectable panels.
In terms of installation, Tectum DesignArt panels can be directly attached to a wide variety of interior wall and ceiling surfaces using the same simple screw attachment as standard Tectum panels. A glue up method can also be used for wall applications while DesignArt Lines tegular ceiling panels can be easily suspended on color-coordinated grid.
