False ceiling materials come in various varieties, but the gypsum boards are the latest to draw your attention. When considering aspects of home improvement, one of the requirements for creating chic and elegant office spaces appeared to be a ” false ceiling,” which gradually became a trend due to its advantages.
The inclination to bring something ‘false’ was because exposed cables, wires, ducts and cracks could be hidden in the ceiling of the main concrete.
“False ceilings are suspended from the main ceiling,” explains Mohd Riyazuddin of N.M Decorators. The suspension is attached to the superstructure walls, roof or beams. A false ceiling is a second ceiling in simpler words that can add additional features to improve aesthetics and also ease some functional aspects. “. If cables are hidden, fancy lighting equipment such as hidden lights could be fixed and central air conditioning could be provided throughout the fake ceiling. These fancy ceilings can mask service lines in air conditioning and electrical wiring systems and provide thermal insulation and soundproof rooms for meeting rooms and auditoriums.
Various materials are used to create a false ceiling. It is made of metal panels and isolating materials.
While aluminum or steel panels can be placed on a visible steel grid with T- sections or cross- sections suspended from the ceiling by long surface rods, metal sheets can be stretched to form different shapes that can be suspended from the ceiling. This treatment is ideal for obtaining a variety of metal shapes without changing its insulation.
Gypsum board is another fake ceiling material sought after. It is lightweight, flexible and resistant to fire and moisture. Gypsum board panels are tough and cost- effective and quickly replace other ceiling materials such as Plaster of Paris( POP), which are also used to renovate old ceilings.
His brother Nawazuddin, says, “Although the false ceiling may at first appear to be a slightly expensive proposition, it has distinct functional and esthetic benefits that make the money worth. It is no wonder that false ceilings form an integral part of any interior design for new and old buildings. Both gypsum plasterboards and Plaster boards from Paris( POP) were used in India to build false ceilings. Gypsum plasterboard- based false ceilings are used in most office and commercial interiors because they are quicker to build and have many more advantages over traditional POP ceilings.”
He explains that heat insulation because of the air gap between the two ceiling layers helps to keep the room relatively cool. “Your power bills due to air conditioning will also be significantly reduced due to a smaller air volume,” he says.
