What type of plaster ceiling works best for you?
There are two main types of plaster ceilings, both of which offer their own advantages and disadvantages. We take a look at their different properties to help you decide which option works best for your commercial space.
- Suspended ceilings – These are great for a range of purposes, from soundproofing to concealing wires, air ducts, and cables and improving energy efficiency. They are also impervious to mould, making them a great option for high humidity areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. Also known as dropped ceilings, they are easy to install and also remove if maintenance or repairs are ever required.
- On the flip side, this option tends to reduce the amount of overhead space, as the ceiling in the room becomes lower than a traditional plaster ceiling. Additionally, they can have a faster rate of wear than other options.
- Exposed ceilings – This type provides tradespeople and contractors with effortless access to systems such as air conditioning and electrical wiring that are typically located in the ceiling. It also creates a more expansive office space, as higher ceilings tend to open up a room considerably. However, they are typically harder to install than dropped plaster ceilings and require a specific type of acoustic tile to block out unwanted atmospheric noise.
