Armstrong has launched a new high-performance dirt-resistant coating, TrioGuard, for metal ceiling tiles.

Transport projects can often begin to look shabby, quickly. Armstrong ceilings has a solution for ceilings which are difficult to clean and maintain and therefore quickly become dirty and fade.

Armstrong has created a unique dirt-resistant powder painted finish with a lasting “just like new” appearance, which means lower maintenance costs and ease of cleaning, and is also colour fast, keeping its original colour for up to 10 years.

TrioGuard coating was developed to minimise the difference between the transport project as designed and how it looks after it is opened when it has been subjected to the dust and dirt generated by traffic flows unparalleled in any other sector.

Armstrong research showed little cleaning actually takes place in this sector due to the logistics and costs. TrioGuard allows ceilings in healthcare and commercial environments to be easily cleaned.

A German institute for manufacturing engineering and automation tested TrioGuard for multiple exposure, longevity/fluorescence and dust repellency.

TrioGuard was developed for both new-build and refurbishment applications after research with 360 architects and designers found that dirt resistance figured in the Top 6 of their wish list for ceilings.

The coating is available in both Armstrong’s standard and custom ranges of Hook-On, Clip-In and Lay-In metal ceilings, in plan, perforated and micro-perforated options as well as baffles and walls.

For areas with low ceiling voids the Clip-In systems are downwardly demountable and come with an optional swing-down function. The Hook-On panels can be stored vertically in the ceiling when specified with the hinge-down swing function. Both systems are also lockable, with a separate security clip.

TrioGuard systems are manufactured from up to 30% recycled content and up to 85% light-reflecting and are covered by Armstrong’s 15-year product warranty and industry-leading 30-year systems warranty.

Armstrong’s architectural specialities product manager Jeremy Sumeray said: “TrioGuard helps our customers deliver better-looking ceiling for longer, resulting in happier passengers, and because of the reduced cost of maintenance and cleaning, happier operations.”
