LANCASTER, Pa. (September 7, 2011) — Armstrong’s introduction of its StyleStix™ custom grid molding has given homeowners a reason to love their drop ceilings again – especially those members of the Handyman Club of America who recently tested StyleStix in their own homes. The Handyman Club is a community of do-it-yourself home enthusiasts who share projects, tips and advice on many topics, including home improvement, remodeling and landscaping.
The StyleStix snap-on design instantly beautifies an existing drop ceiling by adding a high-end, finished wood molding look to mask the industrial feel of traditional metal grid systems. Wall moldings and main runners are available in 6’ pieces and easily snap directly onto standard 15/16” metal drop ceiling grid. StyleStix, part of Armstrong’s new Custom Creations™ collection, was designed for use on 2’ x 2’ ceiling grid profiles only. For homeowners with 2’x4’ ceiling profiles, they can simply install standard 2’ metal cross tees to update their grid design.
StyleStix’s global white color was chosen to perfectly coordinate with existing standard white ceiling tile but StyleStix can also be painted with latex paint for additional customization. Retailing for approximately $1.00 per linear foot, StyleStix enables homeowners to achieve a sophisticated, low maintenance look at a price that’s 1/3rd the cost of creating a deep visual with custom coffer work.
