Armstrong launches time-saving plasterboard ceiling suspension system


Drywall Grid System by Armstrong delivers up to 40% installation time savings

Armstrong Ceilings has formally launched its time-saving Drywall Grid System (DGS) to the UK market following its stunning use on the largest hospital building project in Europe to date.

A new DGS brochure showcases the project Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow as well as other UK DGS projects, and in the US, where the system has been popular for years, the NOAA offices in Alabama and the Pennsylvania Academy of Music.

Now that the system is launched to the UK office, education, retail, leisure, healthcare and hospitality sectors, giving specifiers the option to use as a standalone, wall-to-wall, or in combination with Armstrong tiles and Axiom perimeter systems as a fully-compatible solution.

Up to 40% quicker to install, the DGS suspension system for plasterboard ceilings is available in three versions - standard for typical flat installations, faceted for curved and domed ceilings of any radius, and Shortspan for smaller areas such as corridors.

Designed for strength, but using 15% less steel, the CE-marked Drywall Grid System utilises Armstrong's popular T-shaped grids and can easily incorporate service elements such as light fixtures, access panels and air diffusers or ventilation systems.

A total of 70,000 linear meters of DGS were used at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital - flat DGS was installed alongside Armstrong's bespoke pre-engineered Axiom perimeter solutions in the stunning reception atrium and curved DGS was used for the nurses' stations in the wards.
