5 Benefits of Installing a Suspended Ceiling
What is a suspended ceiling? A suspended ceiling or a drop-down ceiling is a sequence of panels supported by a metal framework – you have probably seen one in just about any office building you have ever been in, with the foam board panels you can push up and hide things inside. But that is just one type of suspended ceiling – in fact, many suspended ceilings use metal or tin ceiling tiles for an elegant and chic look. Here are some other benefits of suspended ceilings.
1. Hide Your Infrastructure
A suspended ceiling is the best way to hide unsightly but necessary electrical, plumbing and ductwork running through your ceiling. Rather than having exposed pipes and conduits, choosing a suspended ceiling puts all that out of sight, while still allowing easy access.
2. Improve Aesthetics
While a suspended ceiling decreases ceiling heights by a small amount, it is offset by the undeniable aesthetic improvements of a uniform ceiling full of lovely suspended ceiling tiles. Which would you prefer: exposed ductwork and electrical conduits, or the elegant simplicity of metal tiles?
A suspended ceiling offers a second layer of protection when it comes to soundproofing. Soundproofing is all about obstructing sound waves, and many suspended panels are designed with extra soundproofing. Metal Ceiling Express offers sound dampening products at great prices for suspended ceilings.
4. Easy Installation
Installing a suspended ceiling is a breeze, especially compared with the cost of a full ceiling remodel. The savings involved in choosing a suspended ceiling add up quickly. In addition, the cost effectiveness means that if you change your mind about what kind of ceiling you want, it is a straightforward matter to replace the tiles in your suspended ceiling with new ones at a minimum of hassle and expense.
In addition to all this, a suspended ceiling offers two distinct insulation benefits, even if you do not choose to add further insulation to the product. First, the addition of a layer between the original ceiling and the suspended ceiling creates a barrier that acts as a layer of insulation. Second, since the ceilings are lowered, the room requires less heat overall.
Suspended ceilings offer a wide range of benefits at an affordable price.
