Ceiling tiles are typically applied directly over existing ceilings. This type of installation is called “direct apply.” There is no grid required, and no loss of headroom.
Easy Up® Guaranteed Installation System
This system, exclusive to Armstrong, uses metal tracks and snap-on clips for a fast, easy, and secure tile installation.
Ceiling tile adhesive can be used to attach mineral fiber tiles directly to existing drywall or plaster ceilings.
Metallaire™ Ceilings Only
Metallaire 2’ x 4’ panels are directly applied to an existing ceiling using color-coordinated cone head nails.
Ceiling planks are typically installed through a direct apply option, meaning they are applied right over an existing ceiling.
WoodHaven® plank ceilings can also be installed in a suspended grid system.
HomeStyle® Direct Apply Options
WoodHaven Installation Options
Ceiling panels are typically installed in a suspended ceiling grid system. The grid and other installation components are sold separately. Look for them where you buy your Armstrong ceiling panels.
Metallaire panels can be installed with two different methods, depending on the size of the panels.
Installing StyleStix grid covers is a snap! Just fit the covers over the face of a standard metal grid system and snap them into place. You don’t even have to remove the ceiling panels. The only tool required is a hack saw or miter saw to cut the grid covers to the right lengths.
All the materials you need to cover a 64 sq. ft. ceiling grid (2’ x 2’) are included in the StyleStix kit:
5 – 6’ wall molding covers
6 – 6’ grid covers
12 – 2’ grid covers
