Drop Ceiling: Raised Panel

Suspended or “drop” ceilings have been around almost 100 years. They were developed as an attractive way to conceal ductwork, pipes, electrical and other building systems routed along the ceiling. While today’s drop ceilings are still used to hide unsightly home systems or a damaged ceiling, they now offer something the old drop ceilings didn’t: style. You can find many stylish options available for a drop ceiling with Armstrong ceiling panels, including different sizes, textures, colors, and patterns to bring a fresh, updated look to your ceiling.

What Is a Drop Ceiling?
A drop ceiling is a secondary ceiling that hangs below an existing ceiling. It’s made up of a metal grid suspended from hanging wires and other hardware that support lay-in ceiling panels. The panels conveniently drop into the grid to complete the new ceiling. You may also see the term “drop ceiling tiles” used. With drop ceilings, both panels and tiles are laid into the grid.

Grids come in the standard 15/16” profile or Armstrong’s Suprafine 9/16” profile that delivers a sleek, uninterrupted look. Ceiling panels are available in either 2’ x 2’ or 2’ x 4’ sizes. No matter what size grid or panels you choose, Armstrong suspended ceilings need only three inches overhead clearance for most rooms.

Best Rooms for Drop Ceilings
You can install a drop ceiling anywhere in your home, especially if you’re looking for an easy way to add style to a room. Basements and specialty rooms – home theaters, game rooms, and offices – are places where a drop ceiling is often the best option.

With Armstrong ceiling panels you get exceptional design options that will inspire you to take your ceiling to new heights.

Features and Benefits of a Drop Ceiling
Light reflectance – Drop ceiling panels can create a much brighter space. Panels with a high light reflectance value increase illumination and save money on utility costs by reflecting a large percentage of incidental light back into a room.

Acoustics Control – Some acoustical ceiling panels absorb more than 50% of noise in a room, reducing sound within a room. Other ceiling panels block sound between floors – perfect for home theaters, game rooms, and family rooms.

Indoor Air Quality – Enhance the air quality in your home with Brightex with AirGuard™ ceiling panels. These panels remove up to 50% of formaldehyde from the air for 10 years.

Mold Resistance – For moisture-prone areas, like basements, look for ceiling panels specially treated to resist the growth of mold, mildew, odor- and stain-causing bacteria on the treated surface.

Sag Resistance – Ceiling panels treated to control moisture absorption resist sagging in areas of high humidity.
