 DC FlexZone Systems

Description

DC FlexZone offers the ability to distribute safe, low-voltage direct current (DC) power that can significantly improve the flexibility and reuse of interior spaces by enabling easier re-purposing and reconfigurations without the need to re-wire. It is the first ceiling suspension system that provides an infrastructure for the delivery of low-voltage direct current (DC) power based on the Emerge Alliance 24 VDC Occupied Space Standard.Available in two popular Armstrong grid designs – 9/16" Suprafine® T-bar and 9/16" Silhouette® 1/4" reveal – the new system’s DC main beams with integrated electrical conductors are available in four different lengths and are designed for use with standard cross tees and conventional suspended ceiling installation practices.

DC FlexZone™ Suspension System

The DC FlexZone Suspension System is a power distribution platform that allows you to distribute safe, low-voltage direct current (DC) electrical power. DC FlexZone can be an integral part of a net zero energy building strategy providing more efficient lighting and direct use of on-site renewable energy. Plus, it gives you plug and play electrical flexibility throughout the building for easier re-purposing of spaces without the need to re-wire.

DC FlexZone - Suprafine® Suspension System

  • Offers the same durability and stability of standard Suprafine with the added benefit of one Class 2 “Safe to Touch” electrical circuit integrated into the main beams.
  • DC FlexZone – Suprafine main beams come in 4 different lengths, are made from high recycled content steel and meet D, E, F seismic design requirements.
  • DC FlexZone main beams integrate with standard cross tees, moldings and accessories for Suprafine Suspension Systems and are installed as part of the overall acoustical ceiling system.
  • Electrical connections to the conductors on the DC main beams are installed by qualified electricians.

DC FlexZone - Silhouette® ¼” Reveal Suspension System

  • Offers the same durability and stability of standard Silhouette with the added benefit of two Class 2 “Safe to Touch” electrical circuits integrated into the main beams.
  • DC FlexZone – Silhouette main beams come in 4 different lengths, are made from high recycled content steel and meet D, E, F seismic design requirements.
  • DC FlexZone main beams integrate with standard cross tees, moldings and accessories for Suprafine Suspension Systems and are installed as part of the overall acoustical ceiling system.
  • Electrical connections to the conductors on the DC main beams are installed by qualified electricians.

Benefits

  • Low-voltage DC power distributed through the ceiling grid
  • Re-purpose and reconfigure without rewiring
  • Simple, flexible plug and play modularity
  • Customize your space with devices where you need them
  • Help accelerate use of DC-based LED lighting
  • Enable direct use of on-site renewable energy, like wind and solar

Formations with DC Flexzone Suspension System

Pre-engineered acoustical cloud kits featuring DC FlexZone suspension system, Axiom® extruded aluminum trim, and compatible DC lighting control system. Ideal for open plenum spaces or acoustically challenged spaces; clouds reduce acoustical reverberation time and noise levels while increasing speech intelligibility.


Armstrong is a founding member of the EMerge Alliance®, an open, not-for-profit industry association leading the rapid adoption of safe DC power distribution in commercial buildings through the development of EMerge Alliance standards. The EMerge Alliance standard for commercial interiors integrates interior infrastructures (like ceilings), power, controls and peripheral devices, such as lighting, in a common platform. See EMerge Alliance Registered products, including Armstrong DC FlexZone Grid.
