In construction, there is something known as a suspended grid, used to hang from ceiling joists or the ceiling itself. It is meant to provide more space above the drop ceiling grid in order to hide things such as electrical wiring, plumbing, duct work, and anything else that you don’t want seen.
For the most part, these grids are hung by wires. Even better, they can hang anywhere from 4 inches to as much as 20 feet or more from the “true” ceiling. This type of ceiling is great for keeping unsightly materials hidden, and dragging down the aesthetic quality of the room. There are also a few benefits that you may not have realised.
Depending on the setting, there is another major benefit of a suspended ceiling grid that you may not have realised. With certain types of ceiling tiles, they have been designed to improve the reduction of sound coming from above.
Working with a contractor can ensure that you are using the right materials in your ceiling grid to mitigate sound. Before long, you can achieve the right acoustic benefits to keep your building as quiet as possible.
Greater Energy Efficiency
In this day and age, being energy efficient is of the utmost importance. More and more organisations and companies are looking to make changes to their structure to improve the overall energy efficiency.
Having a suspended ceiling means lowering the ceiling height of that interior space. What is the importance of that? Well, it reduces the space that needs to be cooled or heated. The less space that you have to heat or cool, the lower your energy bill will be.
Finally, there is the matter of being able to customise your suspended ceiling to fit any design you can think of. Every design will require different colours, materials, and designs to meet the needs of that organisation.
With a highly customisable ceiling grid, you can match the design aesthetic of any building. That is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits that suspended ceiling grids can make a big impact on what you are trying to do.
