3. Easy access to home systems

The clutter of ducts, plumbing, wiring, TV and networking cables, and other mechanical systems can be easily hidden by a suspended ceiling, yet remain accessible for repairs. Suspended ceilings in a home theater solve the problem of where to nest multiple cables and power cords.

4. Soundproofing

Suspended ceilings offer superior acoustic properties (better than drywall ceilings) to absorb sound, so surrounding rooms are quieter.

5. Moisture and sag resistance

Suspended ceilings are resistant to mold, mildew, bacteria, and sagging. They can even be used in areas where high humidity is present, such as the bathroom.

6. Fire safety

Armstrong ceiling panels and tiles are fire-retardant and meet industry standards for flame-spread ratings.

7. Energy efficiency

The insulating effect of suspended ceiling panels may help lower home heating or cooling bills. In addition, the highly reflective surface of white panels creates a brighter space, optimizing light reflection and reducing the need for additional lighting.

8. Eco-friendly

If you’re making an effort to reduce your carbon footprint, you may want to know that suspended ceiling panels from Armstrong contain recycled post-consumer and post-industrial products.
