Suspended Ceilings – The Benefits
Suspended ceilings are installed with the minimum of disruption and they can be adapted and designed to fit your individual requirements.
Suspended ceilings provide a low cost way to hide ductwork, maintenance areas and plumbing. They will also hide a damaged, cracked, stained or unsightly ceiling and save on the cost of repair whilst still leaving any ceiling mounted systems accessible for repairs or attention when necessary. They are incredibly versatile and can be manufactured from a variety of materials including metal, wood, mineral or glass. Decorative panels are available or plain panels can be painted to incorporate the décor of your office or workplace.
As well as hiding all the unsightly elements mentioned above, a suspended ceiling will provide you with a highly cost effective solution to the concealment of such things as air conditioning units and ductwork, wiring and pipe work. This will dramatically reduce the cost of these improvements and at the same time, improve the overall appearance of your office.
The reduction of noise has been proved in many cases to improve work space comfort and increase productivity. An additional advantage to the installation of suspended ceilings is that they effectively reduce noise. The acoustic performance of suspended ceilings has improved dramatically over the last few years, such that nowadays, significant noise attenuation can be achieved which is a real boon, particularly if the work space is occupied by a large number of people, working in close proximity to one another.
Your suspended ceiling can also be used to create a wealth of lighting effects to suit each individual’s requirements. Suspended ceilings make lighting so much easier, cables can be run above the ceiling tiles meaning that carpet/floorboards or walls do not have to be pulled up or chipped into to install an attractive, beneficial lighting system. The void between the old and the suspended ceiling helps keep the wires cool and allows easy access for maintenance.
In our experience, the amount of lighting needed within a work space premises is often underestimated when refurbishing an office, which is why when we are consulting with our clients on their suspended ceiling requirements, we spend considerable time thinking about the lighting they would require. Suspended ceilings are excellent at optimising light reflection and help to save on energy consumption. Ceiling lighting and ceiling diffusers can be used to create a subtle wall wash lighting effect or direct/feature lighting with down lights can be installed, to display your products to their best advantage and/or keep your staff happy in their working environment.
As well as being ideal for installation in workspace environs, secure suspended ceilings can be installed in banks, building societies and retail strong rooms and because of their high resistance to the effects of bacteria, mould and mildew, they are perfect for installation in shower rooms, changing rooms, wetrooms and bathrooms to.
