New Barz™ is unlike any panel system you have seen before. Now you can preassemble any sizes and spacings of slats, struts, strips, boards, beams, and other linear components into ultra-lightweight panels that allow easy installation and accessibility. To minimize weight, we make Barz from light gage aluminum. We brake-form instead of roll-forming to assure that members are straight and have tight-fitting joints. They stay that way, too, because our wood finishes are not subject to twisting or warping that afflicts solid wood fabrications. Barz also provides outstanding acoustical control and integration with lighting and HVAC fixtures. Barz opens a truly new dimension in ceiling design.
