What is a suspended ceiling?
Suspended ceilings (also known as drop or false ceilings) aren’t structural ceilings. Instead, they are secondary ceilings suspended from the structural slabs above.
When suspended panels are installed, a gap is created between the underside of the structural ceiling and the topside of the suspended ceiling. This gap is typically around 3 to 8 inches, making the space useful for concealing unsightly wires and structural features.
Suspended ceilings are made from tiles that sit within a metal grid frame. A wide range of tile types is available, meaning property owners can choose a tile colour, design, and material to best suit their building.
