An easy and cost-effective way to give your office a more professional atmosphere is to have suspended ceilings installed. Suspended ceilings not only improve the ambience of your workspace, but they also offer many allied benefits, including improved insulation and better acoustics. They can also help you to hide the infrastructure for your services such as electrics and pipeworks, and provide a grid platform for outlets for lighting, mechanical and service.
There are several ways to assemble a suspended ceiling. One such way can be with concealed metal gridwork; this usually works well with tiles made of mineral or metal. Another assembly idea is to use exposed metal gridwork, which can work with mineral, glass or fibre tile systems. The latter is generally the most common for office spaces.
Interior Concepts are experts in the field of suspended ceilings and offer a full service for design, specification and installation for both types of assembly. We can also offer a third system option, which is an MF-type grid ceiling system which has a plasterboard finish.
Ceiling tiles can provide many specific properties, including:
- Sound absorption or attenuation tiles (dB)
- Impact-resistant tiles
- Antimicrobial hygiene tiles
- Thermal conductivity tiles (U-Valve)
- Light reflective tiles
- Colour designer tiles
- Boarded tiles for fire performance.
We understand the requirements for different ceiling tiles in specific kinds of rooms, such as bathroom or kitchen versus an office environment. That means that if you need your ceiling tiles to provide extra resistance to humidity or scratches, certain hygiene properties or extra sound absorption, we can source the right product. We offer acoustic and insulating pads for new and existing suspended ceilings, which will help ensure your building loses less heat and has better sound absorption properties. Additionally, if you require specific fire-rated ceiling systems for areas such as lift lobbies, stairwells and risers, we can install these systems too.
Interior Concepts can also extend existing ceiling systems. In most cases, we can match any existing ceiling system you already have and duplicate it if you want it to cover a wider area. Our established network of suppliers means we can easily source the materials for the vast majority of existing ceiling systems. We can also repair and improve the appearance of your existing ceiling system. For example, if your suspended ceiling is tired and dirty and still complies with today’s regulations, we can clean or acoustic-coat it. This will give your suspended ceiling a new lease of life and be more cost-effective than replacing it.
