Armstrong Optima® Capz™ Ceiling System

The new Optima® Capz™ acoustical ceiling system from Armstrong provides excellent sound absorption while maintaining the look and feel of open plenum or exposed structure spaces. The innovative new ceiling offers plenty of design flexibility by pairing new Capz accent hardware with the exceptional acoustical benefits of fine-textured Optima ceiling panels. The panels can be installed directly to the deck to maximize ceiling height, onto drywall, or suspended with wires.
