American Scrape™

Our American Scrape hardwood offers long-lasting hardwood beauty and durability. Manufactured in the U.S.A, a portion of the sales from the American Scrape collection through 2013 will support Homes for Our Troops.


BioBased Tile® (BBT)

Introduced in 2007, BBT offers a phthalate-free alternative to PVC flooring; it’s stylish and sustainable with 85% limestone and 10% pre-consumer recycled content.


Commercial Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) Recycling Program

Through this national closed loop Flooring Recycling Program, Armstrong works with customers to recycle qualifying Armstrong and other vinyl composition tile (VCT) with and without adhesive. For our customers, this program provides an opportunity to save money – we pay for freight to recycle materials – and reduce environmental impact at the same time with little to no effect on renovation or construction schedules.



Armstrong has been making linoleum with the same natural ingredients for more than 100 years. Armstrong linoleum combines beauty, performance and low maintenance in a sustainable package – ours has 35% pre-consumer recycled content and 36% rapidly renewable raw materials.


Raffia™ Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT)

Raffia VCT contains post-consumer recycled content and 85% limestone which means its environmental footprint is lower than our standard VCT. At the end of its useful life, Raffia can be recycled into new VCT products through the Armstrong Commercial VCT Recycling Program.

CoolZone Ceilings

CoolZone, an innovative ceiling solution, absorbs energy during the day and releases it at night, keeping living and work areas at a steady temperature around the clock. CoolZone saves energy and improves occupant comfort.


DC FlexZone™

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. 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.


Fiberglass Ceilings

Our energy saving, high light-reflective fiberglass ceilings have 70-75% recycled content, and they’re recyclable through the Armstrong Closed-Loop Recycling Program. They’re certified, low VOC- emissions, and the substrate resists mold/mildew and bacterial growth. Environmental Product Declaration available.


Mineral Fiber Ceilings

Our mineral fiber ceilings are high recycled content (HRC) and 100% recyclable through Armstrong Closed-Loop Recycling Program. They’re certified low VOC-emissions with our AirGuard™ coating that actively removes formaldehyde and other aldehydes in indoor air.


Suspension Systems

Our ceiling suspension “grid” systems have 63% high recycled content (HRC) available as a standard option (Interlude, Prelude, and Suprafine). All Armstrong suspension systems contain 30% recycled content, the highest in the industry, and they are recyclable.


TechZone™ Ceiling Systems

TechZone ceilings offer a custom look via standard components; they integrate with standard, pre-engineered drywall grid and perimeter solutions and coordinate fit and finish across ceilings, suspension systems, light fixtures, air diffusers, air returns and chilled beams. TechZone has excellent durability, superior light reflectance (enhances daylighting and saves energy) and outstanding noise reduction.


WoodWorks® Ceilings

Our WoodWorks ceilings are 92% recycled content and 100% USDA Certified Biobased with FSC®-certified, no-added formaldehyde and rapidly renewable veneer options.


WoodWorks® Walls

Our WoodWorks walls, available in variety of standard wood species, stains, panel sizes, and perforation options, are 100% USDA Certified Biobased with FSC®-certification and California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliance. Our perforated panels with acoustical backing improves sound quality and reduces reverberation time.


Ceiling Recycling Program

The Armstrong Ceiling Recycling Program, started in 1999, is the industry’s first ceiling recycling program. To date, we’ve recycled more than 123 million square feet, and that grows each day. Our closed-loop process produces Armstrong Ceiling-2-Ceiling™ branded items with the industry’s highest level of post consumer recycled content.
