Meet Arena and Bene

As part of our evolution from Armstrong Ceiling Solutions, Zentia has embarked upon a product renaming project, but don’t worry: our commitment to manufacturing excellence and customer service has not changed.

As part of a wider initiative to streamline Zentia’s product portfolio, we’re moving to the next chapter with the renaming of both Academy Diploma and Academy Merit.

Arena (previously known as Academy Diploma) are white tiles available in three different edge details – Board (600 x 600mm and 1200 x 600mm), Tegular (600 x 600mm) and Microlook (600 x600) offering excellent design versatility. Arena has a finely sanded surface for well-balanced acoustic performance, it can be specified in a wide range of interiors, from open plan offices to educational settings, and can be used in both new build and refurbishment projects.

Bene (previously known as Academy Merit) offers design flexibility with both a Board and Tegular edge detail available.  Its finely fissured surface texture provides affordable, well-balanced acoustic performance making an ideal choice for a ceiling solution in offices and retail spaces.

Both tiles are fire rated to Euroclass A2-s1, d0. and provide Class C sound absorption.  Arena and Bene continue to be manufactured in the UK and are always available from our distribution partners.

This is yet another significant milestone for Zentia and one of many more changes to our product names. As part of our evolution from Armstrong to Zentia, we’re renaming many of our products over the next 24 months.

To support architects, contractors and distributors in the transition, we have created a new product renaming hub on our website. This will be regularly updated with new information as we go through this process.
