-          Optima Capz Installation… Solving acoustical challenges in exposed structure spaces has never looked so good!  Optima and Spectra Capz work well in either retrofit or new spaces – they offer a flexible fit with many panel size options that can be installed directly to the deck between structural bar joists or on drywall or suspended like a regular ceiling.  Panels can be designed in long runs or grouped based on the acoustical needs of the space.  Video on the different installation options of Capz with installation tips.

-          TechZone Yoke Installation TechZone Ceiling Systems provide a monolithic, uncluttered ceiling visual by organizing technical services into 4", 6" or 12" wide zones. Now, you can configure all your services – including linear recessed lighting fixtures (LED now available) and pendants, chilled beams, air diffusers, returns and sprinkler systems – into the TechZone System.  Our new TechZone yoke even enables true, continuous linear lighting.  The result is a clean, custom look that uses standard ceiling and grid components.  Video on the installation of the yoke for continuous runs in the TechZone areas.
