Armstrong® Ceiling & Wall Systems has introduced Axiom® Glazing Channel for use with 3/8″ and 1/2″ thick interior glass partition walls. All the new profiles are recessed and offer fully concealed integration with Armstrong acoustical and drywall suspension systems to provide a crisp, clean installed visual in which the glass disappears into the ceiling plenum.
Architects are currently limited to the exposed U-profile glazing channels on the market today. With the addition of the new Axiom profiles, architects can now obtain completely concealed integration with Armstrong lay-in, tegular, and Vector® ceiling panels and drywall systems without the need for a drywall bulkhead.
Five Profiles Available
Made from extruded aluminum, the new additions are available in five profile options for use in a variety of ceiling applications, including acoustical to acoustical, seismic acoustical to acoustical, Vector acoustical to acoustical, acoustical to drywall, and drywall to drywall. All profiles are white to coordinate with Armstrong ceiling and suspension systems.
In terms of installation, Axiom glazing channel uses standard Axiom splices and T-bar clips. In addition, ceiling contractors can control their installation without requiring time-consuming coordination with glazing contractors. Similarly, glazing contractors may only have to visit the job once, also saving time and coordination.
