Leave it to manufacturer Armstrong World Industries to virtually re-invent the ceiling. Don’t come to this company with woeful tales of cheap wallboard or ugly composite, for they’ll surely point you in the direction of their impressively extensive line of wooden ceiling panels. From Oak to Cherry to the “Natural Variation” line and even the environmentally-savvy appeal of Bamboo, Armstrong World Industries’ wooden panels constitute a symphony of overhead options.

Armstrong’s Woodworks Line Provides Easy Access at Less Cost
Though some may claim that nothing beats the pure aesthetic of custom millwork, a veneer panel system is an excellent alternative, as it comes with the undeniable perks of affordability, easy upward access, and rapid installation. The Woodworks line satisfies on every front.
With Armstrong’s extensive line-up, it may be hard to know where to begin, so potential users can look to the success stories of such auspicious locales as the University of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium, where a bespoke perforated oak ceiling on a linking breezeway flanks fans overhead with high performance acoustics and a handsome geometric motif.
Or look to the rectangular grid of planks in red cherry that graces the sky at Tampa’s International Airport: “The Vector edge detail hides the grid and provides continuity throughout the plane.”
Then there’s always the veritable proof in the pudding of Armstrong’s assertion of high performance acoustics—the renowned Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, whose cadre of attuned ears hear perfect pitch courtesy of Armstrong’s Tegular Perforated Panels.
Armstrong World Industries' Woodworks panels are available in 30 standard 2' x 2' panel options and two edge details. The company also offers rectangular sheets in 4-1/2" and 6" widths with a 3/4" black reveal. Custom options include oversized panels and canopies, either as ceilings for new construction or to match existing systems: “veneer management is available to coordinate with millwork or other existing wood surfaces.”
