Newmat Stretch Ceiling Systems
- Over 200 colors and finishes based on the aesthetic, technical, and acoustical requirements
Newmat has provided the architectural, design, acoustical, and lighting communities with the most creative and technically advanced ceiling system on the market.
Invented over three decades ago in Sweden as a remedy for damaged plaster ceilings, PVC stretch ceilings became an ideal solution for this particular situation. However, throughout the years, its numerous technical and aesthetic advantages made it a product of choice for unlimited applications.

- Quick and clean installation
- Fully accessible at any point on the perimeter
- Mildew and moisture resistant
- Easily cleanable
- Maintenance free
- Highly acoustical
- Ability to hold weight
- Shock resistant and flexible
- Class A fire rating
- Ability to easily create shapes
Whatever your needs may be, either for new construction or renovation, Newmat will provide you with the most aesthetic and economical solution on the market today.
An architectural mesh stretch system, BatiNewline can be used for ceiling or wall applications. Unlike other Newmat products, it can be installed outdoors as well as indoors. The membrane is a vinyl coated polyester mesh, which is custom cut to the size and configuration of your application with a variety of perimeter attachment options.
A registered and patented product in the U.S. by Morton International, Bio-Pruf is a powerful anti-germ, anti-fungus, anti-bacterial, and self-deodorizing process. Embedded in the mass of Newmat’s membrane, Bio-Pruf will remain active for the lifetime of same.
These pre-stretched ceiling panels are available in 2′ x 2′, 2′ x 4′, 4′ x 4′, 5′ x 5′, as well as custom sizes. Any of Newmat’s available membranes can be used to create an «envelope» which is stretched over an aluminum frame with or without an acoustical core. Mir.O.Dal panels can be installed in a regular t-bar grid system, can be supported by a custom channel, or can be installed with a concealed grid.
This Newmat system consists of a patented microperforated membrane stretched by itself or over an acoustical core. NewAcoustic is perfect for high acoustical absorption for ceiling or wall applications. With or without an acoustical core, NewAcoustic will provide you with NRCs from .50 to 1.0. In addition, you will be able to choose from various spectrums of absorption depending upon the acoustical core and the mounting type.
The ideal system for backlit applications, NewLight offers seven membranes in different colors. NewLight works well with either natural or artificial lights and can be installed as single layer or double layer for better light diffusion. In addition, a second layer will serve as a dust/particle barrier. You may also combine NewLight with any Newline perforated membrane
Newmat offers a perforated PVC product line — namely, Newline. Available in three types of perforation sizes and patterns, Newline is ideal for:
- Acoustical performance
- Backlit installations with or without the addition of NewLight (translucent) membrane
- Air transfer when the application involves quick changes in air pressure
- Achieving the look of perforated metal without the weight and cost of metal, in addition to being able to create much larger monolithic areas than metal systems
The Newline lacquer finishes are reversible and can be used, if preferred, on the matte side.
