Most modern buildings include suspended ceilings as it is a great option for using space and covering electrical wiring and plumbing pipes. Initially that was all suspended ceilings are about but they have evolved and are used to conceal lighting, ventilation, air conditioning and in some cases sprinkler systems in offices, classrooms and showrooms. We can assess your current ceiling structure and advice you instantly on whether a suspended ceiling is a viable option or no. Talk to our experts today.
A constant worry from most clients we speak to when we discuss suspended ceiling is the question of the amount of headroom the suspended ceiling will take. The big question is whether installing a suspended ceiling will make the room smaller? Although a suspended ceiling will eat into part of the precious headroom the result is not so dramatic as it takes only a tiny portion of the headroom. A simple suspended ceiling, particularly with applications such as drop down panels will require as little as three inches of room and most rooms can afford that easily. You can call us for guidance If you're not sure about just how much room will be taken up by a suspended ceiling as it may depend on what you want to have in the gap of the ceiling.
The gap of the Ceiling
That gap created with a suspended ceiling gives you a lot of options for accommodating functional features like lighting and it also allows for easy installation (and concealment) of wiring, air conditioning vents, and sprinkler systems to name amongst others.

Whatever your ideas we can bring them to life.
Drop down panels
Smooth or textured mineral fibre panels are another option for a suspended ceiling that open up a world of options when it comes to the look of the ceiling. Think of them as being like large tiles that can give a panelled look and feel to a normal ceiling. They can give effects ranging from wood panel to light, bright, modernist approaches all combined with the flexibility of the space behind the panels that you get with a suspended ceiling. Our suspended ceilings experts are happy to talk you through our catalogues of different looks for suspended ceilings with our without panels.
Light Commercial Ceiling Tiles
You see these in meeting rooms, up market retail shops and showrooms the world over where the commercial strip lighting units are contained in a gleaming metal look unit in the ceiling. The effect is brilliant, bright and modern and because these light units come as a one piece 'tile' that slots into place they are easy to fit into a suspended ceiling. They are also easy to replace, maintain, or change in multi-use building spaces that are expected to change roles and be rearranged on a regular basis like showrooms and most retail spaces.
