Whether you are an architect or a building manager in charge of redesigning an office, you may be hesitant to include a suspended ceiling in your design due to various myths and inaccuracies you may have heard about suspended ceilings. Below we bust common myths about suspended ceilings to ensure you have an accurate understanding of their benefits.
Myth 1: Suspended ceilings can make a room feel cold
This myth is inaccurate as a suspended ceiling can actually make a room feel warmer. A suspended ceiling is often lower than a standard ceiling, and therefore reduces the journey of heat in a room. As heat rises, it will reach a suspended ceiling faster and cause a room to heat up more quickly.
Myth 2: Suspended ceilings aren’t environmentally friendly
There are multiple environmental benefits to suspended ceilings, for example, they can reduce the carbon footprint of a business as they can be complete with insulation. Insulation lowers how often a business uses heating and cooling systems, at is prevents the loss of heat/cool air from the roof. They also reduce humidity in a building, preventing damp and mildew from affecting the office environment and prolonging the life of office equipment, reducing how much equipment a business places in a landfill.
Myth 3: Suspended ceilings are noisy
Suspended ceilings can actually improve the acoustics of a room as they create a barrier between floors and therefore reduce unwanted, external sound. This not only saves a company from purchasing soundproofing materials, but it also ensures employees can work in silence without distraction.
