Integrated furring strips and an acoustical infill reduce installation time and provide maximum sound control up to NRC 0.85.





(PRESS RELEASE)LANCASTER, PA — With the introduction of Tectum DesignArt – Lines Finale PB ceiling and wall panels, Armstrong World Industries offers architects and designers an opportunity to deliver unique visuals created by panels providing excellent sound absorption.

Tectum DesignArt – Lines Finale PB panels come in 29 standard routed panels, including 14 designs for 24″ x 24″ panels and 15 designs for 24″ x 48″ panels. Panels are available in 24 nature-inspired colors, unpainted Natural, and several made-to-order colors.

Manufactured with an acoustical infill made with a plant-based binder and integrated furring strips, the one-inch-thick direct-attach panels provide maximum sound control up to NRC 0.85. In addition, the panels install 2.5 times faster than other direct-attach panels while offering the same acoustic performance.

Acoustics and Aesthetics
Tectum DesignArt Lines – Finale PB ceiling and wall panels have UL Certified acoustics with acoustical testing and reporting that align with industrywide best practices.
