Popular Types of Suspended Ceilings

When designing new commercial premises, or planning a commercial refurbishment for your office, choosing the best and most appropriate suspended ceiling is an important part of the project. It is an important decision as it can affect the overall interior design, the lighting and air conditioning, the ease of maintenance for essential services, the look of the office and the overall aesthetic‘s of the interiors. Here are some of the most popular types of commercial ceilings for offices.

Suspended Grid Ceilings

Suspended grid ceilings or drop ceilings are the most widely used ceiling system for commercial office buildings. Suspended ceilings are ceilings that are suspended from the roof, or concrete slab overhead. The ceiling are suspended using steel suspension rods, the suspension drop varies from approximately 300mm to 900mm. These ceilings are easy to customise to suit the space, and great for large spaces, such as offices, showrooms, and warehouses. Suspended grid ceilings are a lightweight and cost-effective ceiling option for any commercial building.

The plenum space overhead can be used for essential services cabling and ductwork including air conditioning, fire protection, electrical and data cabling, and plumbing pipes. If any maintainance of the essential services is required, it is easy, as the ceiling tiles can be temporarily removed during maintenance.

There are many different types of ceiling tiles available including mineral fibre ceiling tiles, and plasterboard ceiling tiles, the most popular colours are white or off white. The most popular sizes for ceiling tiles are 1200mm x 600mm or 600mm x 600mm, but custom sizes are also available. The most popular grid systems for suspended ceilings are steel, and aluminium. These ceilings also are good for noise reduction as acoustic insulation can be installed over the ceiling, as it is being installed. For ceilings under roofs, thermal insulation can be installed, this helps reduce heat gains in summer, and winter heat losses, and can reduce your energy bills significantly.

Set Plasterboard Ceilings

Plasterboard ceilings are often used where maintenance of essential services is rarely required. Space is provided within the plenum for essential services ductwork and cabling. Manholes can be installed in the ceiling for maintenance, usually either 450mm x 450mm or 600mm x 600mm.

Plasterboard is screwed to a metal framework of furring channels suspended from the roof or floor above. The plasterboard is then finished with plaster or taping and jointing, then painted for a smooth, seamless finish. With good acoustic properties when insulation is installed overhead, and options to resist fire and moisture, there is a solution to suit most commercial premises. Set plasterboard ceilings are also great for creating curved, sloped or vaulted ceilings.

Stages of Installing Plasterboard Ceilings

  • Bulkheads: These can be installed to cover items such as exposed beams, ductwork or cabling, they are framed in steel studs, and then sheeted with plasterboard.
  • Finish against Perimeter Walls: Generally Wall angle is first fixed to perimeter walls and columns, to secure the ceiling against the perimeter walls.
  • Steel Framing: this consists of steel furring channels and top cross rails that create a grid that evenly distributes the weight of the ceiling across the room.
  • Suspension System: Most common forms are steel suspension rods fixed to the roof or concrete floor above.
  • Type of Plasterboard Sheeting: after the grid work is complete, the plasterboard is fixed to the furring channels, either standard plasterboard, acoustic plasterboard, wet area plasterboard, or fire-rated plasterboard.
  • Plastering: The plasterer then plasters the joints and screw holes, to achieve the smooth seamless finish that is required for painting.
  • Painting Works: Finally after all the other trades have finished, the ceiling is painted usually in white colour to suit the interior design of the office.
