Ensure your ceiling is modern, effective and fits in with the overall look and feel of your office. Affordable Fitouts is your one-stop shop to office ceilings. Our expert team of specialists offers a range of options, the most common being the suspended ceiling grid system because of its flexibility.
Suspended grid ceiling
Suspended grid ceiling systems are highly innovative and of exceptional quality. Suspended ceilings are secondary ceilings suspended from the structural floor slab above. They create a void between the bottom of the floor slab and the top of the suspended ceiling. Concealing building infrastructure including piping, wiring and ductwork, they allow access for repairs. They conceal sprinkler systems but still allow full fire suppression operation.
The only disadvantage is that suspended ceilings do reduce headroom because sufficient space is required for pipes or ductwork above for the installation of ceiling tiles and light fixtures. Suspended ceilings can, however, be removed without much effort.
The most popular ceiling style of today, suspended grid ceilings offer an appealing look in a variety of textures, colours and patterns and can be tailored to the customer’s request. They also deliver a dramatically improved acoustic treatment when installed with great absorption qualities.
Plaster ceilings and bulkheads
Affordable Fitouts offers only the best quality in plaster ceilings for offices. Much like the plaster ceilings you might find in your home, commercial plaster ceilings give a pleasing texture and are often soundproof.
Accompanied by a bulkhead, a section of the ceiling that has been dropped and enclosed or boxed-in, this can create a feature ceiling or be great for concealed lighting.
Exposed ceilings deliver a distinctive ingredient to any room. Providing an industrial look and feel, many people today are opting for that stripped-down, warehouse-style aesthetic. Just be warned though that while exposed ceilings are exactly that, open and exposed, they are often not less expensive than a suspended ceiling. Creating that perfectly unfinished look takes a surprising amount of work.
More often than not, ductwork may need to be replaced or cleaned up and painted to create a uniform appearance. There may be a lot of exposed wiring and cables and hidden costs. Because there will be a larger amount of space this is more space to heat and cool. Plus, acoustically, they will not absorb the same volume of sound that ceiling tiles or a suspended ceiling will.
While we love the look of an exposed ceiling, it is important to be aware of the hidden costs.
