This spring Armstrong World Industries launched Lyra® PB (Plant-Based) Vector® ceiling panels; introduced updated finishes for WoodWorks® wall panels; and added wood looks options for SoundScapes® Shapes and Blades ceiling and wall panels. In addition, SoundScapes® Shapes, Blades, and Canopies are now available in 15 nature-inspired colors. These new offerings give architects and designers additional opportunities to “bring nature indoors” with warm wood visuals that capture the natural beauty and uniqueness of wood in species ranging from walnut to cherry to ash, oak, and more, as well as through a palette of nature- inspired colors.

WoodWorks wall panel options expand with nine updated finishes
The WoodWorks wall panel portfolio now includes nine updated finishes offering unparalleled natural beauty through varying species, graining, and color: Plain Slice Cherry, White Maple, White Ash, and White Oak, Vertical Grain Fir, Quartered Sapele, Mahogany, and Walnut; and Rift White Oak. These are in addition to four legacy veneers: Natural Variations™ Maple and Light Cherry, and Constants™ Walnut and Redux Wood Wheat. WoodWorks wall finishes coordinate with most WoodWorks ceiling panels.

Introducing Lyra PB Vector Wood Looks
Lyra PB Vector ceiling panels are available in seven standard wood-look visuals: Brown Sugar Walnut, Toffee Chestnut, Vanilla Ash, and Honey Oak. In addition, three made-to-order wood-look visuals are available: Earl Grey Teak, Bourbon Cherry, and Dark Mocha Walnut.

Lyra PB Vector ceiling panels with plant-based binder evoke the beauty of large- format wood ceilings and superior sound absorption (up to 0.90 NRC) without perforations. The 1/4-inch reveal between the lightweight, sag-resistant acoustical panels achieves the look of large-format monolithic wood, while downward accessibility makes Lyra PB Vector ideal for projects with limited plenum space. The mold- and mildew-resistant panels are also part of the Armstrong® Sustain® portfolio and meet the most stringent industry sustainability compliance standards today, as well as the Armstrong® CleanAssure™ family of disenfectable products. Lyra PB Vector ceiling panels are Build America, Buy America Act compliant.
