Armstrong launches TrioGuard™ to give metal ceilings dirt-resistant performance @ArmstrongCeilin

A high-performance dirt-resistant coating for metal ceiling tiles, TrioGuard™, has been launched by Armstrong.

Transport projects are often at the cutting edge of great design. But their very nature means they soon begin to look shabby.

Ceilings designed to capture the eye soon begin to capture dirt and fade and because they are usually designed at height in this sector, cleaning and maintaining them is not an easy option.

Now Armstrong Ceilings has come up with a patented solution – a unique dirt-resistant powder painted finish with a lasting “just like new” appearance, which means lower maintenance costs and ease of cleaning, and is also colour fast, keeping its original colour for up to 10 years.
