CHICAGO, June 12, 2006 -- Armstrong Ceilings has introduced the broadest
range of metal mesh lay-in panels in the industry. The new MetalWorks™ Mesh™
portfolio totals 13 standard patterns, seven of which are unique to the ceilings
Featured among the portfolio’s designs is a woven wire pattern that
features a Tartan look, and another that features a Linear Weave look. No
specialty manufacturing is required for any of the 13 new patterns, reducing lead
MetalWorks Mesh ceilings can be used as accent borders, clouds, or full
ceilings to create a contemporary feel while adding a sense of volume to a
space, especially one with an open plenum.
They also work well in conjunction with lighting for added drama and with
Armstrong 360 Painted Grid for a consistent visual. In addition, custom
capabilities are available through Armstrong Architectural Specialties, a
dedicated in-house project management team.
Ideal for use in applications ranging from retail, hospitality and
transportation to public buildings and convention centers, MetalWorks Mesh
panels measure 2’x 2’ in size and install quickly and easily in a standard 15/16”
T-bar suspension system.
Wide Variety of Panel Patterns Offered
The MetalWorks Mesh family of ceilings is offered in three types of panels
– welded wire, woven wire, and expanded metal. Welded wire panels are offered
in a square pattern with either 1”, 2”, 3” or 4” interior cells; and a diamond pattern
with either 4” or 6” cells.
Woven wire designs include the Tartan Weave and Linear Weave patterns, plus
a Crimped Weave pattern that features a wavy 4” square interior cell. Expanded
metal designs include Scallops, a small circular pattern; Lattice, a small diamond
pattern; Trellis, a medium flat diamond pattern; and Cascades, a large 3-
dimensional diamond pattern.
Standard panel finishes include white, silver grey, gun metal grey, and
tech black powder-coated finishes; a nickel chrome plating finish, which is
available on all panels except Cascades; and bright aluminum and natural
aluminum anodized finishes, which
are available only on Cascades. Two premium options – copper and bronze –
are also available for all panels, as are custom finishes.
All Mesh ceilings are manufactured from cold-rolled steel except the
Cascades panel, which is aluminum. All Mesh panels have borders or finished
edges for simple and safe handling and installation.
