New Ultima Create! Custom Capability from Armstrong Allows Designers to Create Their Own Ceiling Art

    Architects and interior designers can now create their own ceiling art thanks to the new Ultima Create! custom design capability from Armstrong.
    Full color custom ceiling art can be created from either original artwork or an original digital image.  Custom colors for full-sized ceiling panels are also available.
    The ability to personalize a space through the use of a unique ceiling design makes Ultima Create! acoustical ceilings well suited for a wide range of retail, hospitality, healthcare, education, corporate and other commercial applications.
    Available on both the Ultima® and Health Zone® Ultima product lines, the new capability is offered on Armstrong 2’x 2’ Ultima Vector, tegular and lay-in ceiling panels, and on 2’x 2’ Ultima Health Zone tegular and lay-in panels.  
Same Performance Benefits as Ultima
In addition to their ability to enhance the aesthetics of a space, Ultima Create! ceilings also provide all the high performance benefits of both Ultima fine-textured ceilings, including washability, water resistance (Health Zone Ultima), impact-, scratch-, and soil resistance as well as anti-mold and mildew resistance.
Acoustically, Ultima Create! panels feature a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.70, meaning they absorb 70%of the sound that strikes them.  They also have a high recycled content of 70% - 80% and are recyclable at the end of their service life, both of which can help contribute to LEED credits.  
    Ultima Create! ceilings install the same as standard Ultima ceilings.  Vector and lay-in panels are installed in an Armstrong Prelude XL suspension system, and tegular panels in Armstrong Silhouette XL suspension systems.
