What does suspended ceiling mean?
A suspended ceiling also called a dropped or false ceiling, is one that hangs below the main structure roof of a building or room. Often, suspended ceilings are fitted with false ceiling panels installed into a frame. These ceilings are frequently found in modern construction in both commercial and residential applications. Initially, this type of ceiling was created to hide building infrastructures such as wiring, ducts, or piping.
Modern innovation now means that they no longer come in simple and basic ceiling tiles. There is a range of options available in many colours and materials.
Why have a suspended ceiling?
Suspended ceilings have lots of advantages. They are popular in commercial properties but increasingly in domestic properties too particularly in conservatories and kitchens.
This ceiling type provides a smooth and clean finish to a room’s ceiling and can hide pipes and wires in most cost-effectively. Additionally, there are other benefits too, such as insulation and acoustic improvements, safety in terms of fire-retardant materials, and lighting benefits.
What is the advantage of a false ceiling?
False ceilings are great for many reasons. The main one is providing an excellent finish to a room, hiding things such as wiring and piping work. They also work as an effective acoustic barrier, improving a room’s acoustics.
What is more, they can work as an added layer of insulation. Also, by lowering the height of a ceiling, you will trap the warmer air, reducing heat loss. This can make for a property that is more energy-efficient.
In other ways, safety can be increased with fire-retardant materials in the suspended ceilings. There is also the added benefit of adding extra light reflectance in a room, improving the quality of the light in the room.
How much does it cost to put in a false ceiling?
In 2018, the average cost of installing a false ceiling was around $48 per hour. This cost, of course, varies depending on how intricate or straightforward a ceiling is.
For example, for a basic full ceiling in an average-sized room that has a standard plastered wall, it can cost around $205.
Of course, these estimates will change depending on your needs and whether you wish to install insulation or use premium materials.
