Panelite materials provide an unparalleled combination of aesthetics and performance for design and architecture. The company pioneered the translucent honeycomb panel in 1998 and continues to develop products expanding on the significant benefits of translucent composites. The focus is to provid materials that enrich architectural experience with their beauty and impress with their quality, while measurably conserving energy and resources.
Four things you can do with Panelite that you can’t do with glass:
Panelite Bonded Series panels are light-transmitting, light-weight and easy to install. Our honeycomb technology offers designers, contractors and installers many advantages over other translucent panel alternates.
Gone are the days when ceilings of office buildings and other public spaces were covered with plain, perforated tiles hanging from a rectilinear grid. Ceilings Plus® is a leading provider of modern, aesthetic ceiling products with beautiful finishes using a wide range of wood and metal finishes, giving any project a very high-end feel at competitive prices.
THINK OUTSIDE OF THE GRID WITH CEILINGS PLUS®
The shortest distance between two points of inspiration is often a curve. Perhaps that’s why architects throughout the ages have used vaults and domes. In the modern era, you might have your own reasons to use curved ceiling panels – such as creating increased clearance above a ceiling for ductwork, or to allow daylighting to penetrate deeper into a room. Lightweight, acoustical, and fully downward accessible, Radians® ceilings break the 3-dimensional barrier with a smoothness of gesture executed with uncompromising precision.
IllusionsIllusions™ ceilings began with a dream: what would be the ideal ceiling system? From the start, we knew it had to be great looking – with exciting finishes, a concealed suspension system, and panel sizes to match the visual scale of any space. Next we identified functional requirements, including optimum acoustics, light weight for easy handling and reduced load, full accessibility to above-ceiling services, and integration with lighting and other ceiling mounted fixtures. Finally, but not as an afterthought, we recognized that the ceiling had to be as sustainable and affordable as possible. Driven by this vision, Ceilings Plus created Illusions, the most successful metal and wood ceiling system in existence.
LINEAR CEILINGS – IMPROVED
Mirra™ linear metal ceilings have been popular for decades. Unlike conventional linear ceilings, Mirra is precision formed for added strength and a cleaner appearance. It is available in whatever sizes and spacings your project requires, and in a spectrum of metal and painted finishes. When we clad the same lightweight aluminum panels with Arboreal® or Sarantè® veneer, we call the product Planx™. Find out more
New Barz™ is unlike any panel system you have seen before. Now you can preassemble any sizes and spacings of slats, struts, strips, boards, beams, and other linear components into ultra-lightweight panels that allow easy installation and accessibility. To minimize weight, we make Barz from light gage aluminum. We brake-form instead of roll-forming to assure that members are straight and have tight-fitting joints.
The Idea Pad from Ceilings Plus is a clever tool for architects and designers to explore the possibilities with Ceilings Plus. Equipped with magnetic finish samples, perforation patterns on clear plastic sheets, and a plethora of project images for inspiration, it is easy to visualize many design solutions for the project at hand. The newly redesigned Idea Pad is intended to replace the traditional info binders that would easily get lost in firms’ resource libraries. Contact Us to request your copy today!

Zinc is a long-lasting metal that changes color over time, giving the surface a seasoned look with inherent warmth that many other metals lack. In addition, because zinc is malleable and easy to work with, edges can be molded into decorative shapes and treatments for optimal design alternatives.

A characteristic style element, which combines the highest aesthetic requirements as well as ease of installation, was needed for the designing of the stairways. Metal mesh, type Futura 3110, fulfilled these requirements and came into use at the stairwell area.
In the interplay with the lighting of the stairway, the reflective stainless steel mesh evokes fascinating light effects. In addition to the clamping at the top and bottom end, the metal mesh is attached to the stringers in both ascending and descending direction. Over 13 feet wide and about 36 feet tall rectangular mesh panels divide the stairwell. Due to its transparency, it provides the desired spacious and high-quality appearance.
GKD Metal Fabric Sunshading Façades offer significant energy saving, comfort, and a pleasant work environment by filtering light and providing transparent views to the outside.
There is no substitute for extraordinary design.

Wilkinson Hi-Rise trash chutes are constructed of #16 gauge aluminized steel, galvanneal and several different grades of stainless steel. Sound dampening coating can be applied to outside of chute to minimize noise emitted by the chute. Further sound protection is provided by applying a “wrap” insulation to the exterior of the chute. The floor frames of the chute are typically equipped with sound isolator pads at each floor connection point to isolate the chute from the floor of the structure.
