Suspended ceilings allow you to conceal pipes, ducts, electrical wiring and more, with the visible ceiling hiding any unsightly aspects of the structure. The ceiling void can also serve as an air plenum, which greatly aids ventilation and enables you to access pipework, wiring and ducting with ease, simply by removing one of the ceiling tiles.
In practice, a steel grid is suspended from the structure, with acoustical tiles sitting in the squares of the grid, providing the ceiling surface. Lights, speakers and vents can also be situated in the squares, giving a uniform appearance at the same time as being functional. Many lights, air conditioning systems and sound setups are available in standard ceiling tile sizes, meaning you can easily install, move and remove these items as you wish — something which would not be possible with any other type of ceiling.
Suspended Ceilings- what are the Pros?
Suspended ceilings are relatively affordable compared to other types of ceilings, and are quickly and easily installed, which makes them ideal for a number of purposes. If the room in which they’re being installed already has quite a high ceiling, a suspended ceiling can give you an affordable, easily maintained ceiling without having to worry about the ceiling looking too low.
