FrameAll Drywall Grid
Armstrong Ceiling and Wall Solutions’ FrameAll Drywall Grid is a preengineered drywall ceiling suspension system that is up to three times faster to install than traditional track and channel framing. FrameAll drywall suspended grid solutions are also designed to reduce labor and material costs compared to traditional framing methods.
The time-proven preengineered solutions allow architects and designers to control the finished aesthetic and achieve their design intent. Contractors benefit from a faster installation using engineered, modular components complete with stab connections, intersection routs, and hanger wire holes.
The ability of the system to service all drywall grid ceiling needs, ranging from flat and curved ceilings to corridors, soffits, clouds, and transitions is the reason the system is called FrameAll Drywall Grid. FrameAll Drywall Grid products are also part of the Sustain portfolio and meet the highest sustainability compliance standards in the industry today.

Arrow RevealCut Ceiling Tile Cutter
by Arrow Fastener
Arrow Fastener’s Arrow RevealCut is a new all-in-one precision workstation that allows ceiling installation professionals to cut acoustic ceiling tiles in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost with precise results, minimal waste, and fewer job site accidents.
Arrow’s proprietary design makes RevealCut a significant innovation in ceiling tile cutting history. The product changes how hundreds of thousands of acoustic ceiling tiles are cut every day by eliminating the need to cut ceiling tiles with a straight edge and a utility knife and delivering up to 80% in labor savings.
RevealCut is available in two convenient sizes: one for two-foot tiles and a larger version for up to four-foot tiles. The workstation cuts 98% of all common ceiling tile sizes with ease and efficiency by using an integrated precision-cutting blade system to cut factory-grade profiled edges. The proprietary cutting blades are the first blades designed specifically for cutting ceiling tiles and can cut 200 times before needing a replacement blade.
