False Ceiling

False ceilings are often secondary ceilings that are hung below the main ceiling with the help of suspension cords or struts. These ceilings are crafted from a wide range of materials such as POP (plaster of Paris), gypsum board, asbestos sheets, particle board, aluminium panel, wood etc. They are also known as dropped ceiling or suspended ceiling.The most commonly used false ceiling materials are as follows:

PVC Ceilings

PVC ceiling is of two parts- one is using flexible PVC and another solid PVC, which helps easy installation of lights and other accessories. These PVC panels have many benefits, which are quick and easy to install and allow for finishings, edges, and corners.

The advantages of using PVC ceiling panels are easy maintenance, no paint, durable, water resistant, lightweight and a great alternative to POP ceilings and Gypsum ceilings. PVC ceilings are mostly used in living rooms, bedrooms and kitchen rooms.

Glass Ceilling

One of the type of false ceiling used in construction are of glass. It is a non-crystalline material with the property of brittle and transparent. But this can be altered to make it non brittle and non-transparent using some admixtures.As glass is a good insulator of heat, it can be used for false ceiling. This type of false ceiling improves aesthetical appearance of the building.

Gypsum Ceiling

Gypsum false ceiling is a hydrated sulfate of calcium. This type of false ceiling are lightweight, sound insulated, fire resistance, soft and thermally insulated.

Gypsum false ceiling comes in the shape of square boards that are hung with the help of iron framework. The finishing work on these boards like paints, laminates, wallpapers and texture finish gives good look.

Plaster of Paris Ceiling

Plaster of Paris (POP) is the majorly used material in the construction of false ceiling. POP is obtained when gypsum is heated to a certain degree. It gives the both aesthetical and functional help.

Plaster of Paris false ceiling are attractive, almost no maintenance and has a long life span. They are very excellent insulators or heat and cold.

These types of false ceiling don’t only hide the ugly members of structure, ventilation ducts and conduits but also give smooth finish to the ceiling.
