Armstrong Ceilings - Cradle to Cradle

Armstrong Ceilings showcases recycling benefits in new green video

  • 11 May 2017

Armstrong Ceiling Solutions’ has released a new green video, highlighting its recycling programmes for demolition, construction and renovation projects. 

The schemes have saved 15 million metres-squared of old ceiling tiles globally, and diverted 61,000 tonnes of waste from landfill.

As 2,000 square-metres of recycled ceiling tiles equaties to 7.6 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill, the result is a 14,000 kWh saving on energy.

The two-minute long video demonstrates the benefits for specifiers, contractors and installers in signing up to Armstrong’s green programme, designed to leave as small a footprint as possible. 

Armstrong already helps specifiers and contractors estimate the potential benefits of recycling through an environmental impact calculator on its website, and has also helped contractors reap the rewards of going green by forming a network of green Omegas – installers with specific expertise in recycling schemes.

Armstrong’s recycling scheme means old ceiling tiles, from those that have reached the end of their life to new tile off-cuts, are upcycled into new ceiling tiles, with at least 42% of these manufactured from recycled product.

Armstrong’s Perla and Ultima+ ranges are fully recyclable and Cradle to Cradle certified, and along with the Cradle to Cradle-certified Prelude suspension system, offer a complete Cradle to Cradle certified ceiling solution. Armstrong was the first mineral ceiling tile manufacturer in Europe to win Cradle to Cradle certification.

In addition, Armstrong does not charge contractors for its recycling schemes, nor does it specify minimum quantities, and more recently, it recycles all mineral tiles, not just its own.
