All Optima ceilings feature a fine textured, non-directional DuraBrite™ surface for increased durability and superior light reflectance. The washable, impact-resistant surface resists scratches, thus minimizing the need for frequent panel replacement. It also makes the panels more resistant to HVAC soiling. Optima's sister product, Ultima is the ideal choice for Closed Plan areas.

Optima ceiling panels are available in a variety of standard, non-standard and custom sizes. When paired with an Armstrong suspension system Optima ceiling panels are backed by the Armstrong 30-year System Performance Guarantee. In addition, Optima ceilings contain 71% recycled content and provide excellent sound absorption; NRC (0.90-1.00) and CAC (up to 26).

Nine new items in the Optima family… the only fiberglass ceiling panel made in North America with a plant-based binder. It even qualifies for LEED® credits in nine categories.
