Types and Uses

Suspended ceilings are a staple of modern construction and numerous innovations over recent years mean these highly functional structures now offer aesthetic qualities too.

Sometimes referred to as a dropped ceiling, the suspended ceiling came into being as a way of concealing the underside of the floor above and providing a space to hide piping, wiring or ductwork. Having a secondary ceiling improves acoustic balance and it is in the area of acoustic performance that suspended ceilings have progressed in leaps and bounds.

Typically, a suspended ceiling comprises a gridwork of metal channels in T shapes hanging from the structural ceiling. The areas between the channels are filled with tiles or panels in a range of materials including mineral fibre, wood, metal and plastic. The tiles or panels can be replaced by light fittings or ventilation grilles in some of the modules, or can be cut to accommodate other fixtures. Access to the space above the suspended ceiling for maintenance of fittings is easily achieved.

New suspension systems allow for designer-led acoustic ceilings that are independent of the exterior walls.

There are now products to suit all sorts of applications with specific requirements. Suspended ceiling systems available from respected manufacturers include concealed and semi-concealed systems, drywall grids and options for special applications such as air quality control in clean room environments.
