This month, we are taking a look at a handful of new ceilings solutions and products from three companies that have long since paved the way for innovation in our industry. Marlite and Glassteel, two manufacturers known for FRP products, and USG, one of the leaders in ceilings solutions.

Along with other core categories, Marlite, Glasteel, and USG are a selection of the products available at L&W Supply’s branches.

USG – Paraline Baffles – TIMBRE Finish

The Paraline Baffles Linear Ceiling System from USG is a great example of a ceilings product designed around flexibility and ease-of-installation. For those interested in metal ceilings, Paraline Baffles offers contractors and architects a wide range of options, including TIMBRE, 6 new wood grain finishes.

We’ve seen Paraline Baffles utilized to add visual accents to a ceiling system while maintaining a strong acoustical performance. With the new TIMBRE line, Paraline adds even more flexibility by offering the aesthetic of a wood finish without the inherent challenges associated with wood.
