Benefits and features of Armstrong suspended ceiling tiles include superior light reflectance that increases illumination in a room, better acoustic control, higher indoor air quality, and better resistance to mold and sag. Some of Armstrong's ceiling tiles absorb sound at a rate of more than 50 percent, taming the reverberations in large, cavernous-sounding rooms. Armstrong also sells Brightex ceiling panels that remove certain air contaminants.

In areas of high humidity, suspended ceiling tiles that resist moisture absorption typically perform better than those that do not since absorption leads to sag. Generally, sagging or drooping ceiling tiles are an indicator of a high humidity environment coupled with ceiling tile materials that are not resistant enough to moisture to keep water from collecting inside the material's internal structure. This can also promote the growth of mildew, mold and many forms of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, affecting the air quality of the room and possibly creating unhealthy conditions for its inhabitants.
