WoodWorks Grille is the newest addition to Armstrong’s WoodWorks family of composite wood ceilings. The standard wood grille system mimics the look of solid wood and is available in two blade heights—1-3/8" and 2-1/4"—and four finishes, maple, light cherry, dark cherry, and walnut. The standard blade width is 5/8", and the ceiling system is offered in 1'-by-8' panels with either six or eight blades per foot. Custom options include blade height and width, finish, and number of blades per foot. Suitable for office, higher education, hospitality, and retail applications. When backed with 1" acoustical infill, WoodWorks Grille has a NRC of 0.9. The system installs on a standard Armstrong Prelude 15/16" grid. armstrong.com/woodworks
