The Sustain high-performance sustainable ceiling portfolio includes more than 850 products that meet the industry’s highest sustainability standards. The Sustain portfolio includes Ultima and Cirrus ceiling panels, expanding the offering of sustainable ceiling products with Total Acoustics performance. Total Acoustics ceiling panels provide high sound absorption (NRC) and sound blocking (CAC) in a single panel. Other products in the Sustain portfolio that offer Total Acoustics performance are Calla, Lyra PB High CAC, and Canyon ceiling panels.
With their ability to both absorb unwanted sound and block noise from traveling into adjacent spaces, Sustain products with Total Acoustics performance enhance indoor environmental quality with clean materials that create quiet environments that foster concentration, collaboration, and privacy. The Sustain portfolio also includes other products that offer noise absorption, including Lyra PB (plant-based binder) and Optima PB ceiling panels.
With the addition of MetalWorks Blades — Classics, there are now five metal ceiling products in the Sustain portfolio, including MetalWorks Snap-in, MetalWorks 3D, MetalWorks Torsion Spring, and MetalWorks Clip-on unperforated panels.

To meet material transparency requirements, Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs) have been developed for all the ceiling products in the Sustain portfolio. Sustain ceiling products also comply with the performance standards of the Living Building Challenge certification program and the low emissions standards of the California Department of Public Health.
