Transition in style
Regain aesthetic control of the perimeter with an Axiom Perimeter System. The transition from pelmet to either
plasterboard margin or acoustic ceiling is now simple. Armstrong Axiom Perimeter Systems are a pre- engineered
solution, integrating curtain pelmets, air distribution and ceiling elevation changes. Field fabrication and on-site
decisions become a thing of the past. Axiom Perimeter Systems directly integrate with the ceiling grid via a
positive locking connection clip. Concealed splice plates enable mechanical lock connections between adjacent
pelmet sections.

Three easy Profiles

There are three basic aluminum extrusion profiles that provide a precise, crisp architectural detail.
