To provide greater flexibility in the design of ceilings with a linear look, Armstrong® Ceiling Solutions continues to expand its portfolio of WoodWorks® Grille products The WoodWorks Grille line of standard products now includes three blade widths (⁵∕⁹”, 1″ and 1¼”), five blade depths (1⅜”, 2¼”, 3¼”, 4¼” and 5¼”), and five blade patterns (3, 4, 5, 6 or 8 blades per panel). In addition to the standard options, custom blade widths, depths, and configurations are also available. Depending on the size of the panel, WoodWorks Grille panels are available as backer, dowel, or backer and dowel combination panels. All panels are offered in Grille Maple, Grille Light Cherry, Grille Dark Cherry, Grille Walnut, and Grille White finishes. Custom finishes are available as well. An economic alternative to custom millwork, WoodWorks Grille panels install easily on the ceiling, on a wall, or as 90° angled or faceted ceilingtowall transitions. A custom curved application with flexible backer is also available. Acoustically, WoodWorks Grille panels have a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.75 when installed with an acoustical infill panel, meaning panels absorb 75% of the sound that hits them. In addition, all panels are engineered, tested, and approved for use in all seismic areas. For additional information, click on WoodWorks Grille ceilings.
