Suspended ceilings are found in a range of commercial environments, including offices, warehouses, and retail outlets. But what are they and why does your restaurant need one?
In this short article, we’ll cover the benefits of drop-ceilings and the three main types, so you can make an informed choice.
What are the benefits of suspended ceilings in restaurants?
Better access to structural components. This is thanks to panels or tiles in our suspended ceilings that can be easily lifted to one side.
A reduction in your energy bills. Your new drop-ceiling will reduce the amount of space that needs heating – at the same time creating an intimate and cosy area.
A quieter and more relaxing environment. Our tiles deliver superior soundproofing, so your guests will be able to clearly converse with one another.
These are just some of the advantages of having a ceiling suspended. Discover even more benefits by talking to us today.
What types of suspended ceilings are best for restaurants?
The most common ceiling types are:
- Lay-in. This system is secured via a metal grid and ideal if your ceiling is too high – meaning it would otherwise pose issues for contractors fitting lighting, ventilation or electrics.
- Clip-in. If access to space between your new and old ceiling is unnecessary, choose this option instead. It clips into a hidden T-bar and can be customised to suit most commercial environments.
- Metal frame. Ideal for retail fit-outs, the M-F system comprises a metal framework and resembles a flat plaster ceiling. As with the lay-in ceiling, interior access is limited.
