The benefits of a suspended ceiling
Suspended ceilings, also known as false or dropped ceilings, are very popular in office and retail environments.
They are installed below the traditional ceiling using a grid of metal squares into which tiling of your choice is
fitted. Here are some of the advantages of installing a suspended ceiling, if you own or operate an office or
retail space in Ealing, where Quantock Interiors is located.
One of the great benefits of a suspended ceiling is the clean, smooth finish which it provides. Pipework,
electrical wiring, ducts, air-conditioning units and services can all be concealed in the gap between real and
false ceilings, leaving an internal ceiling that reflects light into the work space and creates a modern, sleek
look. Because it uses a tile system, removal of any part of the ceiling for maintenance is very straightforward,
saving you money.
For any business, time is money, so quick and easy installation is an advantage financially, as well as
minimising the fuss and disruption to your business. You also save money on the heating bill - reducing the
ceiling height reduces the amount of air space which needs to be warmed, thus minimising your fuel costs.
A suspended ceiling also offers a measure of sound-proofing, which can be helpful to those working in busy,
noisy office and retail environments all day. You can even improve the sound insulation by selecting sound
absorbing tiles to improve the acoustics of the space.
Panels for suspended ceilings are fire retardant, and resistant to mould, mildew and sagging. So, if you're
looking for a cost-effective way of increasing sound and thermal insulation, while creating a sleek, professional
finish to your office or retail space in Ealing, explore the benefits of installing a suspended ceiling. With a wide
range of tile designs and styles available, you're sure to find the ideal solution.
