Custom Metal and Recycled Panels: Three New Acoustic Solutions

CAD Metal Ceilings

L&W Supply’s Florida teams frequently deliver and stock some of the most innovative products in our industry, including ceilings and other acoustical solutions. Our sales representatives know the major difference that up-to-date product knowledge can make when it comes to the outcome of a project. In this article, we take a look at three cutting-edge ceilings products from F-Sorb and CAD that have been stocked recently by L&W Supply’s Florida teams:

Custom Architectural Designs (CAD) offers a wide variety of specialty metal wall and ceiling systems for both interior and exterior applications. They manufacture baffles, linear, panel, and column cover products in custom sizes and finishes.

Recently, our teams have worked with various CAD ceiling systems including lay-in, snap-tech, and expanded metal mesh. Depending on the desired application, their ceiling panel systems can be either free-floating or designed for a wall-to-wall system. CAD’s products allow designers and architects the flexibility to achieve the desired level of sound absorption while adding cost-effective accents to a specific area.
