What we all knew, it was probably the wall and the flooring that took priority over the ceiling and how it was done up- the floor got the best marble and the walls plastered and painted in vibrant hues, what about the ceiling? The ceiling remained plain and bare. Then came the trend, followed by decorated ceiling designs that drastically changed the way we ornate the house.
Today, the false ceiling, commonly known as drop ceiling or suspended ceiling, has gone way beyond the mundane flat ceiling, and has become the focal point. Such a lovely variety of false ceilings we seen in homes, offices, restaurants, shopping complexes, and theatres are generally the second ceiling is placed below the main structural ceiling. They can also make for an aesthetically improved much cleaner design, by concealing wires and ventilation pathways.
Suspended Ceilings- What’s the Hype?
Suspended ceilings or dropped ceiling or false ceilings- as the name implies, they are suspended above from the structure, usually a roof or slab. This creates a narrow space between the structure and thesurface of the ceiling.
Suspended ceilings are hung from brackets that are fixed to the roof or slab. These brackets support a series of metal sections, forming a grid, into which panels can be fitted. The tiles can be removed to get in the ducts and pipes above.
Below are outlined some of the main advantages of suspended ceilings.
Concealing pipes and wires- It saves you from making costly repairs and painting. Suspended ceilings conceal visual imperfections that can be ignored or don’t affect the performance of MEP installations. This allows easy maintenance – simply remove the panel to repair, and place it back when done.
