BTW Acoustic Ceiling Planks

A wood plank ceiling adds a beautiful accent to any space. However, budget constraints and complex installation often makes this option impossible.

What’s more, wood struggles to cope with moisture in the air and needs to be varnished or painted for protection. Over time, this can flake or crack as wood expands or contracts. 

That’s why Adapt Architectural has developed the BTW Ceiling System… named BTW because it’s Better Than Wood! It’s easy to fit, low maintenance and has acoustic properties that can’t be found in traditional wooden ceilings. 

BTW benefits

Why is the BTW Ceiling System better than wood?

Easy to install

You can add ceiling planks directly to a standard ceiling grid without any additional structural support, using our simple to use T-Bar Snap Clip.

Simple to customise

The planks can be cut on-site, so you can integrate lights, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, sprinklers etc. with ease.

Acoustic benefits

The unique, micro-perforated finish offers a superior acoustic performance.

Superior safety

The planks are made from PET fibreboard which is highly fire retardant. 

Increased stability

It’s lightweight and long-lasting. Unlike wooden alternatives, the planks don’t shrink and expand with heat and moisture, offering more stability.

Environmentally friendly

BTW is mostly made from minimum 50% recycled material and can be reused again in the future.

Greater choice

Choose from six standard colour finishes with the option to customise to your environment.

More affordable

Save money on material and installation costs, compared with traditional wooden alternatives.

Long-lasting

BTW panels come with a 10-year guarantee.

BTW ceiling plank accessories

The T-Bar clips fit to the side of the plank where there is a slit (which is created on both sides of the plank during the manufacturing process).

They snap onto the T-Bar grid or the hanging channel and support the weight of the plank.

These are flat pieces of steel which fit between the planks to hold them together and keep them aligned and in place.

There are two conditions that work with the BTW ceiling system, one is for when the ceiling planks are engaging on a T-bar grid and when the planks are engaging on a non-T-Bar grid. Each has its own perimeter trim design. All trims are black anodised and come in 2200mm lengths.


This is the trim for a T-Bar ceiling grid being converted to a BTW plank ceiling solution. It has double sided tape which adheres directly to the underside of the T-Bar. This trim is also used for HVAC, trough lighting or any other ceiling detail which is not being covered by the ceiling planks and would otherwise have plank ends exposed.

This is the same concept as the T-Bar Perimeter trim but is offset by 10mm so that it engages the ceiling planks in the same place as the hanging channel. It has double sided tape on the side so that it can stick directly to the wall.

If the installation is happening in a location where there is no T-Bar grid then the hanging channel can be used. The hanging channel has the same dimensions as the T-Bar so the clip can be used to support the weight of the ceiling planks.
