The new Fission range will comprise Fission (formerly Tatra), Fission ND (formerly Cortega) and Fission FT (formerly Fine Fissured) which are all fire rated to Euroclass A2-s1, d0.
Despite the renaming, there are no changes to the products or their technical performance, and they are still warrantied for up to 30 years (when fitted with the Zentia grid system). Alongside this, they are manufactured with up to 51% recycled content and remain 100% recyclable.
Fission and Fission ND are white tiles available in two different edge details - Board (600 x 600mm and 1200 x 600mm), and Tegular (600 x 600mm) for greater design flexibility. The Board edges fully expose the suspended ceiling grid, while the Tegular tiles are rebated, creating a semi-bevelled visual.
Featuring directional and non-directional fissured patterns, they balance the need for sound absorption and sound attenuation in open plan spaces such as atriums, libraries, storage facilities and warehouses.
The premium product in the Fission range is Fission FT which is available in black as well as white and in three different edge details (Board, Tegular and MicroLook). The MicroLook edge is designed for use with Zentia's 15mm grid range, with a vertical edge creating crisp shadowed effects. Its ultra-fine non-directional fissured pattern offers an optimum balance between sound absorption and sound attenuation.
All three ceiling tiles are suitable for new-build and refurbishment projects in the commercial, industrial and retail sectors.
Zentia’s sales and marketing director Graham Taylor said: “In 2020, we began our journey transitioning from Armstrong to Zentia. It is an exciting time that will deliver opportunities for us and our customers. As part of this process, we’re renaming our products and reshaping our ranges. But there’s no need for our customers to worry, their favourite ceiling solutions won’t disappear, and they can still rely on us to manufacture and deliver the same quality suspended ceilings we always have.”
