What is a Suspended Ceiling?

Suspended ceilings are a great option for planning or renovating amenities for a big space. This ceiling system offers better control for lighting, air ventilation, sound quality and insulation in open plan areas. Also called a dropped ceiling, they likewise offer a cost-effective way to cover unattractive or damaged ceilings and save on energy bills.

What is a Suspended Ceiling?

A suspended ceiling system is installed as a false ceiling below the main foundation and works to lower ceiling height and hide electrical, insulation and plumbing services.

Suspended ceilings are usually made up of a suspended metal grid framework, which is connected to the main ceiling by wires. The lightweight grid is then covered with Ceiling Tiles. These ceiling accessories come in a variety of materials to suit different purposes.

Common fibreglass acoustical or mineral fibre tiles are used for soundproofing, while translucent ones work to diffuse light.

Advantages of Suspended Ceiling

1.  Energy Conservation: many tile options offer better savings for light and insulation 

2.  Improved Sound Quality and Fire Safety: varied tile choices can improve sound quality (acoustical tiles) and fire safety (fire-rated wood or mineral fibre tiles)

3.  Easier Wiring and Plumbing Maintenance: provides easier access to specific service areas without disturbing the whole structure

Types of Suspended Ceilings

Depending on function, material, or method used, there are different ways to classify suspended ceilings:

  • Plasterboard suspended ceilings offer a seamless look like a traditional ceiling.
  • Grid ceiling systems have a tile supported by thin metal frames that run in a grid style pattern across the room or office. Finishing perimeters are attached to the walls and the grid is suspended from hanging wires and supported by the perimeter moldings. Standard size for grid is 1200mm x 600mm with ceiling tile size of 1195mm x 595mm.
