    London, February 5 2009, Armstrong World Industries, the market leading manufacturer of suspended ceiling systems, has completed a successful recycling project at the Farnborough International Airshow, held in July 2008.Armstrong has been using recycled raw materials and process waste to make its mineral fibre tiles for over a decade and has now extended its ‘end of life' recycling programme of 5 years to include most types of Armstrong mineral fibre tiles produced after January 2000. These can be recycled using a process which involves breaking the old tiles down into slurry and using it as a raw material for making new Armstrong ceiling tiles.Armstrong has successfully recycled 2,600 m2 (10 tonnes) of Dune Supreme tiles from the Farnborough show site to its UK manufacturing site in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. The mineral fibre tiles were specified by specialist exhibition contractor, SDD Exhibitions, for eight temporary business chalets, and installation was carried out for SDD by its ceilings and partitioning sub-contractor, RSD Systems Ltd.Armstrong is pleased that a professional exhibition company like SDD Exhibitions is taking an environmentally responsible approach to recycling and seeking to maximise the re-use of their construction materials through Armstrong's tile manufacturing/recycling process.“For the period of the Air Show the business chalets at Farnborough become temporary headquarters for some of the biggest names in the aviation industry, so the interiors have to be of the highest quality and the ceilings are no exception,” explains David Humphreys, Project Controller at SDD Exhibitions. “The Armstrong Dune Supreme tiles create an aesthetically pleasing ceiling while providing good acoustics which is challenging in the noisy environment of the show. The Dune Supreme tile also copes well with the high levels of humidity expected on the site. Additional confidence in the products performance was provided by the Armstrong Humiguard Lifetime Guarantee. We are really pleased that Armstrong can provide both performance and environmental ceiling solutions.”.Armstrong offers a free collection programme for loads of 1500m2 up to 3000m2 of used tiles whenever it is environmentally and economically viable to do so.David Stevenson, European Project Manager based at Armstrong's factory, said: “Recycling the Dune Supreme tiles at Farnborough Air Show has proved the programme to be successful and we are hoping to increase the volume of tiles we process here. In conjunction with SDD Exhibitions we are already looking at maximising recycling of tiles, and hopefully metal grid, at the forthcoming Paris Air Show in 2009 and for Farnborough in 2010.”Armstrong will be showcasing its recycling programme at stand no 2480 at Ecobuild, Earls Court from 3-5th March.
