Advantages of Accessible False Ceilings for Commercial Premises

When considering opening a new business or reforming your commercial premises or establishment, there are many factors to take into account: furniture, lighting, colors, security systems. Among all of them, we cannot ignore the ceilings, since they are one more element that contributes to the whole and complements the aesthetics and image of a business.

Let us tell you about the advantages of installing false ceilings, as stated by a professional commercial roofer and which will be good for offices, stores, bank branches or clinics. But, let us start at the beginning…

What is a false ceiling?

It is a very practical element that allows us to design the roof of our establishment and its lighting to our liking. It also allows the integration of air conditioning systems very well.

If we have enough space between the true and the false ceiling, we can even take advantage of it for storage.

Drop ceilings can completely transform the interior of your business, improving both its aesthetics and its practicality. However, keep in mind that there are two very different classes.

Types: continuous and recordable ceilings

Continuous roofs

It is a fixed roof system. They cannot be disassembled and replaced, so any type of change or maintenance requires annoying works. That is why they are not common in commercial premises. Its installation is done using plaster or plasterboard.

Accessible ceilings

These ceilings are removable, so both installation and maintenance are much easier and faster. This makes them a very good option for commercial premises such as shops, or for offices, for example.

The range of materials and finishes of its plates is much wider for this type of ceiling. Its prefabricated pieces, which are placed on a metallic structure, can be made of plaster, fiberglass, aluminum, among others.

Advantages of accessible false ceilings

Next, we will tell you about all the benefits that the installation of these elements can bring to your business:

  • By leaving a hollow space between the original ceiling of the premises and the false one, they make it possible to hide cables or pipes from view, which gives your business a much cleaner and more orderly appearance.
  • Thanks to this hole, they facilitate access to the entire wiring or piping system in the event of some type of failure that requires repair or replacement. Everything is accessible but hidden from view.
  • Its installation is much faster than it would be to create a new ceiling of work at a certain height, which is very convenient if you have tight deadlines to open your business.
  • Its maintenance is easy: it is cleaned and easily repaired or modified (dampness, electrical and plumbing installation, air conditioning or heating ducts…).
  • You can place the type of lighting you want: LED lights, fluorescent lights, ceiling lights, lamps…
  • You will be able to adapt the design to your brand image and your preferences, thanks to the wide range of finishes, styles, textures and colors available on the market.
  • They improve the acoustics of the premises.
  • It allows you to save on the electricity bill since it reduces the space, so the surface to be cooled or heated with the heating and ventilation systems is less.
  • There are many materials and variants: some are resistant to humidity, fire retardant, etc. You can also insulate your establishment thermally and soundly if you wish.

Put yourself in the hands of the best professionals in work and reforms
