Case Study
The refurbishment and refit of commercial offices at 236 Grays Inn Road for Trilium Land Securities was a major project, with the ceiling area measuring 2,300 m².
The client, architect and contractor were tasked with creating an inspirational yet environmentally friendly, internal environment. To provide a sustainable solution and to save on landfill costs, they needed to find a supplier who would recycle the old ceiling tiles and use the raw material to make new ceilings.

With Armstrong’s unique ‘End of Life’ recycling programme, 9 tonnes of old Dune ceiling tiles were recycled. The ceilings were picked up, free of charge and returned back to the manufacturing plant to be re-used. A true ‘cradle to cradle’ extended life cycle!
Metal Axal Vector ceilings, Axiom Transitions & the Bandraster suspension system were selected for their acoustic performance, clean aesthetics, durability, demountability as well as their ability to be recycled. The Axal tiles provided the visual sleekness of a concealed system, with the accessibility and maintenance benefits of an exposed grid system.
