Armstrong World Industries has introduced CastWorks Metaphors ceiling panels, a portfolio of standard, pre-cast 24- by 24-inch Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GRG) tegular ceiling panels in five modern designs and four colors. The geometric and dimensional panels provide quick access to the plenum and install on standard heavy-duty Armstrong Suprafine XL 9/16-inch grid.
The modular panel designs enable users to create many custom looks with different layouts; each panel is one solid piece to impart a high-end look. When installed with acoustic infill panels, the Botanical design achieves excellent sound absorption with an NRC rating up to 0.85. Select panels have pre-cut downlight openings or flat areas for field-cutting to seamlessly add lighting fixtures or other MEP integrations.
