Optima Baffles Curves pioneered by Armstrong Ceilings

Armstrong Ceilings has stolen an industry first with the launch of Optima Baffles Curves

Posted by Stephanie Broad | October 02, 2015 | Supplier News

The mineral Optima curved baffles feature all the benefits of the traditional rectangular ones, but with the added twist of a unique waveform edge which allows designers to create a fresh aesthetic without compromising acoustic performance.

The new curved mineral range retains the mineral baffles’ signature feature of pre-fitted and re-positionable spiral anchors for easy alignment and installation, saving sub-contractors time on site.

Especially suitable for large open spaces with contemporary exposed soffits such as transport hubs, schools and offices, the new curved baffles are ready to fix from a standard suspension grid or direct from the soffit to give easy plenum access, arrayed or staggered for an even more exciting dynamic.

Available in two sizes and painted white on all edges for high light reflectance of 87%, the new curved baffles provide sound absorption on all surfaces, either as a “planar” absorber when installed as a linear array, or as a “discreet” absorber when installed as separate decorative elements.

Manufactured from 80% recycled content and 90% resistant to humidity, they bring a peerless aesthetic to any large open areas where normal suspended grid fixing is not possible, being particularly ideal for low-energy buildings using high thermal mass construction techniques, naturally lit areas with skylights, or higher-profile areas where a distinctive but economical acoustic solution is required.

Armstrong’s new Optima Baffles Curves are also available in any RAL colour and in bespoke sizes and shapes for refurbishment as well as new-build projects and are supported by CAD drawings available from and
