Wall and ceiling innovations highlighted

Leading ceiling and wall solution companies sent representatives to Bermuda to showcase innovations and products to local designers, architects, building managers, and construction professionals.

The experts took part in a seminar hosted by Greymane, which highlighted Armstrong Ceiling and Wall Solutions, a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative commercial and residential ceiling, wall, and suspension system solutions in the Americas.

International representatives from leading brands USAI Lighting, LogiSon, JLC Tech and XAL joined experts from Armstrong to present at the seminar.

Attendees gained an increased understanding of how acoustics and lighting affect interior environments, including an understanding of the importance of acoustical treatments in noisy exposed structure environments.

Alex DeCouto, president of Greymane, said: “At Greymane we are always looking for ways to provide learning opportunities for our industry, and having been a supplier of Armstrong products for more than 20 years, we were incredibly pleased that Armstrong offered such strong support of our idea to offer this seminar locally.”

He added: “It's hugely important that we bring this level of advancement and expertise to the island, and share it with our peers in the industry. We welcome anyone looking to further their knowledge in this area to reach out to us — our team is always happy to hold workshops in our Builders' Supply store, or simply give advice on the best product for the job.”

Edgardo San Miguel, sales manager for Armstrong World Industries, said: “We were pleased to partner with Greymane on this workshop and to see a high level of interest on the island among professionals in the construction and design industry. Participants were excited and engaged, reflecting a high level of professionalism in the Bermuda market. We hope to be back to Bermuda soon.”
