Client: 5 Ways Business Centre Corsham
The existing suspended ceiling in the corridors of this building were in a fairly typical state. When they were originally installed the people who fitted them used the cheapest possible ceiling tile that you can get and although can look really nice when new, does not have very good properties. The slightest bit of moisture in the roof structure above and the tiles absorb it, and you get a saggging effect in the tile. The sagging is particularly bad visually as can be seen from the photographs below.
On this suspended ceiling new ceiling tiles have been added to, and there was a dis colouration between the new tiles and the existing, which exacerbated the problem of the poor look.
As part of this project we also had to arrange for the existing light fittings to be removed, and then refitted after the new suspended ceiling was installed.
Suspended ceiling problems?
There are many different types of suspended ceilings and the range of tiles now can be quite baffling. The current trend is to focus on sound performance within the office and this can be dealt with by using a special tile.
Suspended ceilings are used for a number of reasons, they are quick to install and mean that all the services required for offices such as pipework for plumbing and air conditioning, as well as power and data can be hidden out of sight. Access to the services is also much easier than using a traditional plasterboard or MF type ceiling as the ceiling tiles just need to be lifted from the grid.
There are many offices with old fissured tiles, with sagging tiles and a mottled grey look they make the office look very dated. We like to fit nice white clean tiles to give a fresh look. There is a further description on one of our blog posts which can be seen by clicking this link.
We have been supplying and fitting suspended ceiling systems as part of our main refurbishment projects for a number of years, if you are not sure on what can be done please give us a call.
