Armstrong’s black grid… a closer look.
Armstrong black ceiling grid is an off the shelf exposed grid ceiling system. Obviously, the primary point of difference here is that it’s black and not white like most ceiling grids. So what’s the big deal? I’ve seen black ceiling grid before.

You can purchase 3.6m main bars, 1200mm and 600mm cross tees, as well a black wall angle. This allows you to have either a 1200mm x 600mm or 600mm x 600mm configuration.
The lipped edge on the t bars allows a smoother finish across the system. It also help eliminate T bar twisting which is visible from below.
Cross tees engage nicely with an audible snap, which makes life easier for the installer. If you hear the click, you’re in. The last thing anyone wants is a T bar falling out.
Satin finish always looks good and pairs well with tiles such as Optra. Black grid also looks smart when paired with timber ceiling panels.
