1. Ceiling & Wall Subframing
Types and Configurations
Various types and configurations of subframing can be used for the following:
- Support and/or create a change of direction in a NEWMAT ceiling membrane.
- Support a double rail for the division of a large ceiling area.
- Support lighting fixtures, registers, smoke detectors, etc.
- Support various types of acoustical backing material.
- Support and/or create a free-floating ceiling for cloud applications.
2. Ceiling & Wall Profiles
NEWMAT profiles are made of either PVC or aluminum extruded material.
They are cut and secured to the perimeter of your application using various types of anchors chosen according to the material nature of the existing wall, ceiling, or subframing to which they will attach.
Profiles can be chosen according to aesthetic needs, technical requirements, curving abilities, and accessibility demands.
3. Ceiling & Wall Membranes
NEWMAT ceiling & wall membranes are a flexible PVC material, custom cut and seamed to fit your application, and are surrounded by a welded, semi-rigid harpoon. Depending on your choice of color/finish, the maximum size of a monolithic membrane will vary from 250 square feet to 1,250 square feet. For greater sized applications, a structural divider or a structurally supported double rail will need to be used.
Membranes can be chosen according to your aesthetic needs, technical requirements, and acoustical value. For your choice of finishes, click on any of the options listed.
4. Ceiling & Wall Rings
Rings and/or Grommets
NEWMAT rings / grommets are necessary for all penetrations made through the membrane to allow for lighting fixtures, sprinkler heads, registers, smoke detectors, etc.
Rings are made of either Sintra® or Komatex® material, and they vary in size, shape, and thickness depending upon the penetration.
The installation / securing of the rings is performed on site and is not part of the custom fabrication of the ceiling or wall membrane.
