For new construction or retrofit, Formations cloud systems consist of full-size ceiling panels and a kit containing all the pre-cut-to-length, ready-to-assemble suspension system and perimeter trim components required to create the cloud. The pre-engineered elements help eliminate many of the risks of a custom installation. The clouds absorb sound on the front and back surfaces. The products use the StrongBack installation system that uses fewer hanger wires and recesses them to impart more of a “floating” look to the cloud. Hangers are made from aircraft cable instead of traditional wire to impart a sleeker, more finished appearance.
