Suspended ceilings – the # 1 solution if you want to neatly hide all sorts of utilities and receive a beautiful ceiling. The ceiling is a horizontal design metal frame and decorative plates, which is attached to the base ceiling.
Suspended ceilings are durable, aesthetically pleasing and, moreover, very convenient if necessary, the individual modules of a false ceiling can be easily removed and replaced with the new. Suspended ceilings vary in materials, shape and size of the veneer.
So, panels for suspended ceilings made from mineral fiber, plaster, drywall, metal, wood and plastic. The material should be selected on the basis of the technical requirements to the suspended ceiling, because in certain cases, ceilings should be enhanced noise reduction, fire safety, moisture resistance, etc.
The form panel for suspended ceilings can be divided into 6 groups:
In addition, stand out as curved ceiling panels. designed to create smooth transitions between different levels of the suspended ceiling.
When choosing a suspended ceiling should be based on a number of criteria. So, for suspended ceilings a very important indicator of retro-reflection. The higher the rate, the less lighting, natural or artificial, need to place.
The indicator of water resistance responsible for the stability of the ceiling to deformation under the influence of moisture. When choosing a suspended ceiling for the bathroom or kitchen, this indicator should not be lower than 95%.
Very important also performance of heat and sound insulation of suspended ceilings. The level of sound insulation of suspended ceilings due to the degree of absorption of sound by the material from which it is made, is a soft porous materials are especially good in this regard.
The insulating properties of the ceiling are also due to the choice of the material the more it resists to heat, the higher its thermal insulation characteristics.
Depending on the required level of fire safety of the premises for suspended ceilings, use of refractory materials: non-combustible, flame retardant, flame retardant.
The choice of material for suspended ceilings it is impossible not to take into account the aesthetic requirements. Using different colors and textures of the material, and correctly chosen lighting can obtain various design effects.
