How we do it

Suspended ceilings are secondary ceilings suspended from the structural floor slab above, creating a void between the underside of the floor slab and the top of the suspended ceiling. The gap between a suspended ceiling and the structural floor slab above is often between 3 to 8 inches which is why they are often referred to as dropped ceilings or false ceilings.

The space gained through installing a suspended ceiling has proved useful for distribution of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) services and plumbing and wiring services. It also provides a platform for the installation of speakers, light fittings, wireless antenna, CCTV, fire and smoke detectors, motion detectors, sprinklers and so on.

Once the dimensions have been accurately taken, the drop of the ceiling needs to be determined to measure around the perimeter of the room. By effectively measuring and marking the drop of the ceiling, this prevents any nasty surprises when the grid is fitted.

The false ceiling is hung from a bracket fixed to the underside of the floor slab, supporting a series of interlocking metal sections that form the grid. Beam systems are also available, in which tiles are laid between parallel beams rather than a grid, and there are a wide range of different grid profiles and tile edge details that can be used to allow the grid to be exposed, flush, recessed or concealed.

When a suspended ceiling has been installed, partitions can additionally be added to optimise space. Similar to suspended ceilings, partitions can be designed in a variety of styles to suit the appearance and atmosphere of the interior space.

Partitions can be neatly integrated with suspended ceilings by stopping underneath the false ceiling or running straight through to the structural floor slab above. Together with suspended ceilings, partitions create a modern design that complements commercial properties.

It is crucial that safety measures are carried out to ensure that a path is not created for the transmission of sound between adjacent spaces or for the spread of fire. Acoustic insulation and/or fire separation can be added to the ceiling void if necessary.
