Armstrong Ceilings has rationalised its TechZone ceiling system into four standard layouts which easily organised lighting, air diffusers and returns into 100 and 150 mm-wide technical zones. A range of compatible fixtures from partner companies for the building-services elements (Trox for air diffusers and XAL and Zumtobel for lighting) have been prequalified for fit and finish to give a clean, monolithic look using standard ceiling panels and suspension systems.

The improved TechZone system enables Armstrong to meet the growing trend for linear lighting.

At the same time, Armstrong has teamed up with XAL Lighting to launch the On Centre linear lighting solutions. It makes it even easier for architects and specifiers to create inspiring ceiling designs with higher ceilings, zero plenum interference and on-centre continuous or non-continuous layouts.

This solution is designed to be installed as a full new system but can also be retrofitted to existing 600 mm-square ceiling modules .

TechZone incorporating linear lighting has its own dedicated drawings available from Armstrong’s Architectural Specialities office and is covered by Armstrong’s 30-year system warranty.
