Interior building solutions provider Armstrong Ceilings has enhanced its portfolio of island systems, or canopies, with the launch of curved and circular versions of its popular Axiom Classic range.
The curved and circular variants were previously offered as specials but increasing demand for them from specifiers and architects keen to balance clever and innovative designwith the need for good performance has led to them being offered as standard monolithic modules in addition to the original square ones.
The new, easily relocatable modular system comprises an aluminium grid with a choice of highly light reflective mineral or soft fibre tiles in up to five and two standard kit options for the curved and circular canopies with Tegular and MicroLook edging respectively.
With tiles manufactured from up to 82% recycled content, the system is designed to create ceiling “clouds” and is ideal for acoustically-challenged or exposed structure spaces, such as reception areas, work stations and meeting areas within open spaces in office, retail, education and healthcare applications.
Specified either at initial design stage or as a quick-fix refurbishment solution, the Axiom canopies help to reduce reverberation time and noise levels and increase speech intelligibility. They also allow specifiers to play with different planes and levels to conceal and co-ordinate with services.
