Not content with having one of specifiers’ favourite ceiling tiles in its portfolio, Armstrong has re-engineered the Ultima+ range to offer a host of enhancements.
The next-generation Ultima+ range of mineral tiles and planks now features an even brighter whiter smoother surface, with 87% light reflectance to help achieve 16% cost savings compared with indirect lighting*.
Durability, as well as aesthetics, is also enhanced with fully-painted edges, while the addition of a re-engineered MicroLook 90 edge detail enables a better fit and improved visual finish when used with standard or designer grids. The lightly textured surface also features a new easy-to-clean scratch resistant finish for easier handling and longer life.
The new Ultima+ range features the world’s first Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certificate for an entire ceiling range. Manufactured with up to 64% recycled content, it is available in three core densities that allow specifiers to engineer sound absorption and attenuation for optimum acoustic performance – standard Ultima+ giving medium density, Ultima+ OP giving low density and Ultima+ dB giving high density, up to 41 dB.
As well as being Class A acoustically sound, the Ultima+ range also performs in terms of air quality, being rated VOC A+ for ultra-low emissions and ISO 5. It is also resistant to fire and humidity (95%) and available with a 30-year system warranty.
The Ultima + range is 100% recyclable through either of Armstrong’s two recycling programmes – End-of-Life for all mineral fibre ceiling tiles (even if they are not Armstrong’s) from refurbishment and strip-out projects, and Off-Cut scheme for diverting waste from the installation process from going to landfill.
