The suspended ceiling is a system consisting of a metal frame on which are fixed or finished components (panels, plates, strips, cellular modules, tapes), or plasterboard, creating a plane of the ceiling. Use ceiling leads to the formation of the space between the ceiling and the ceiling, where you can run utilities and installation of fixtures.
The advantages of a suspended ceiling
Suspended ceiling makes it easy to conceal defects of the ceiling surface, as well as all the equipment that is located above the ceiling. In addition, the design of the ceiling allows easy access to the equipment or in a particular desired location, or across the ceiling surface.
If one of the modular units has been damaged or destroyed, it can be easily replaced, without spending too much time.
Acoustic ceilings help to reduce noise in the apartment and eliminate the annoying sounds. Their reflective properties allow us to make well-lit room with minimal power consumption.
Finally, the ceilings are very easy and quick to install.
Suspended ceilings are not only easy to use, but you can create any design in the room, what you want. You can choose modules from any drawing, and imitation of any material. Design ceilings and include types: 1) with a decorative surface finish, 2) with pictures on the surface, 3) allows the construction of various forms (for example, arches and domes).
Curved ceilings can be constructed from modules made from mineral and glass fiber, metal, and also of gypsum boards. You can realize all your fantasies, ceiling decorated with arches, vaults and other forms. Complement to the interior could provide woven wire mesh, and special graceful suspension systems without populating the tiles.
Designers are constantly working on new models, false ceilings, so they combine not only the functionality and ease of use, and aesthetic properties. For example, recently the market for construction materials appeared wing absorbers fitted to the edges of the ceilings.
Classification of suspended ceilings
The ceilings are classified in several ways: by functional features, in design and materials.
Functional ceilings are designed to address a narrow range of tasks. They are fireproof, waterproof, acoustic, hygienic, impact-resistant.
Suspended ceilings can be modular and continuous.
Modular ceilings are quite common. They are composed of modules (tiles, panels, rails, etc.) that are interconnected. The framework of such ceilings can be hidden or, conversely, is highlighted. These ceilings are easy to install, and any damaged item they can be quickly replaced by a new one.
The solid ceilings
The main materials used in the production of modules for suspended ceilings, is: metal (steel or aluminum), mineral fiber, gypsum board, wood, plastic, fiber reinforced gypsum, fiberboard, veneer finish DSP or laminate under the "tree".
