Armstrong Ceiling Systems
Armstrong Ceilings, the UK's leading provider of interior solutions, has celebrated its 150th anniversary safe in the knowledge it is doing as much for environmentalists as it is for specifiers and contractors.
Having had three Ecopoint product profiles since 2004, it is still the only mineral ceiling manufacturer with a BRE Ecopoint profile for UK-manufactured ceiling tiles. Armstrong also calculates (according to ISO 14021) exactly what degree of recycled content its tiles comprise.
Armstrong runs two recycling schemes – one for off-cuts that involves storing off-cut ceiling tiles from new ceiling installations on site in specially supplied bags that are collected for recycling into new ceiling tiles.
Unlike other manufacturers, Armstrong does not charge contractors for this service, neither does it for its End Of Life recycling scheme for refurbishment/strip out projects where used tiles are 100 percent recycled into the mix and processed into new ceiling tiles.
Armstrong's long history in the production of ceiling tiles has seen it evolve from manufacturing standard mineral tiles to developing state-of-the-art aesthetic, acoustic and semi-sterile tiles and bespoke canopies.
Its Tech Zone – a partnership with industry leaders in lighting fixtures, loudspeakers, air diffusers, chilled beams and sprinkler systems – also provides customised ceiling solutions with the guaranteed integration of service elements.
Armstrong Ceilings launch a scheme to build a Green army of approved ceiling and wall system installers with expertise in recycling projects.
