Armstrong Ceiling and Wall Systems

MetalWorks Capz panels are made from aluminum using ExpanTech technology. This new
manufacturing advancement produces a honeycomb composite structure that allows larger
panel sizes with less weight and 10 times less deflection than standard aluminum panels of
the same size, without the use of panel stiffeners. The panels are offered in seven standard
sizes up to 4 by 8 feet. They can be installed in long runs, grouped in clouds, or placed individually
based on the acoustical needs of the space.
