Ceiling cladding can consist of ceiling panels that can be attached to each other flush, to create a uniform flat surface. The ceiling cladding can cover an existing ceiling for decorative or other purposes, or they can be a false ceiling at a desired height that might cover piping or cabling.
A Look at Ceilings
A ceiling is not a structural element but an overhead surface that can serve aesthetic, acoustic or other functions. Ceilings like those of a cathedral can give an impression of great heights.
Ceilings have been the focus of much attention in historic buildings such as the Sistine Chapel. They were decorated with paintings, tiles or other kinds of finish. In dwelling houses, timber was often used to create an aesthetic ceiling.
Plastic Ceiling Cladding
PVC ceiling claddings offer a modern solution. These ceiling cladding can be installed comparatively easily using interlocking plastic panels that neatly fit into each other. Perimeters are finished with solutions like J edges.
Plastic ceiling panels come in different colors and can provide a great look. This type of ceiling can be cleaned easily, and is also durable, unaffected by insect infestation and weather changes. PVC ceiling cladding can provide a degree of insulation and prevent condensation.
The panels can be made with different kinds of PVC or other kinds of plastic such as polypropylene. Each material offers slightly different properties relating to impact strength, heat tolerance, fire resistance and durability. You can select the specific material that is suited to your needs and applicable building regulations.
A Hygienic Solution
Food industry regulations stipulate that premises used to produce, store or serve food must conform to certain hygiene standards. The walls and ceilings should not permit accumulation of dirt, permit condensation or shed particles beyond acceptable levels.
Plastic ceiling cladding meets these criteria. Their smooth surfaces and flush joints prevent ingrained dirt accumulation. Any superficial dirt can be cleaned easily through pressure washing and water drops can be dried quickly. They do not shed particles the way wood does.
Plastic ceiling cladding would thus be ideal in areas such as hospitals and clinics, hotels and restaurants, dairies and others that need a high degree of hygiene.
One advantage of plastic is that it can be produced to have different properties. Thus you can get non-corrosive, chemicals-resistant panels if your premises are exposed to a harsh chemical environment. Or you can have a translucent skylight that allows in natural daylight and saves energy on artificial lighting.
Almost any kind of ceiling problem can be handled with plastic ceiling claddings.
Ceilings of buildings had received considerable attention from early times. They can create different kinds of atmosphere inside the buildings. They can also serve functional purposes such as covering piping or cabling.
Tiles and timber had been used as ceiling cladding. Plastic offers several advantages when used as ceiling cladding. They can be easily installed, come in different colors and patterns to suit different tastes and themes, offer solutions to problems such as hygiene regulations and chemical resistance.
A wide variety of plastic ceiling claddings are available in the market.
