There are hundreds of good reasons why suspended ceilings have become the standard ceiling for offices and retail units all over the world. The two major reasons for the ubiquity of suspended ceilings is obvious. Suspended ceilings are extremely cost-effective and they quickly and effectively hide building components like air conditioning systems and wiring. While everyone may be aware of these benefits there are at least 6 other reasons that make suspended ceilings the number 1 choice for your building.
Easy Access to a Building’s Structural Components
Suspended ceilings not only hide structural appliances like pipes and wiring they also make it extremely easy to access these building components. Therefore if an issue does occur a tradesman can access these parts easily without having to damage the ceiling. Due to the ease of access, suspended ceilings are perfect for large buildings with hundreds of meters of piping and wiring.
Improved Energy Efficiency
All building owners, but especially large building owners, should always be concerned with energy efficiency. A suspended ceiling significantly reduces the size of a space, reducing the area that needs to be heated therefore leading to a significant reduction in annual energy bills.
Better Sound Proofing
By their very nature, multi-storey office buildings require good soundproofing. This is especially true when different businesses or organisations take up different floors in the buildings. A suspended ceiling reduces sound from above, therefore, increasing the buildings overall soundproofing.
If the last few years have taught us anything it’s the importance of hygiene. Due to the material that suspended ceilings are made from, they are perfect for humid environments like bathrooms and kitchens. Suspended ceilings can be treated with antimicrobial solutions that help to discourage the appearance and the development of mould and bacteria.
For darker spaces, white suspended tiles can create a lighter, brighter environment. White tiles help to enhance the overall brightness of ceiling lights.
