Suspended ceilings 101

If you’re wondering whether to fit a suspended ceiling in your home or office premises, this useful guide from Slp Interiors offers all the information required to make your decision.

What are suspended ceilings?

Drop ceilings, or suspended ceilings, are a structure that hangs beneath the main ceiling in any room. They are not a permanent structure, but a type of decorative finish. The principal benefit of fitting suspended ceilings is that they can cover up unsightly pipes or ductwork, giving a much tidier finish to any room.

Why would I choose to fit them?

As noted above, one main benefit of fitting these ceilings is that they cover a multitude of sins, allowing you to run utilities across ceilings to reach other areas of your property. Other benefits of suspended ceilings are that they create a warm, cosy look in rooms with very high ceilings and will also contribute to lower heating costs. Basically, if the ceiling is lower there will be less need for heat in any room during colder months.

How are suspended ceilings installed?

Fitting a suspended ceiling entails installing a metal track framework to the ceiling, this is suspended by wires at the required level. Either panels or tiles are then fitted between the tracking to create the lower, suspended ceiling.
