FALSE CEILING SINGAPORE
A quick introduction into false ceilings
In most typical construction situations, a false ceiling isn’t going to be called for. Instead, you’re going to have a gypsum or drywall/plaster based material applied directly to the ceiling joists in the process is pretty simple and straightforward.
However, if you’re looking to move forward with new HVAC ducting, new lighting, new sound wiring, or other electrical and networking solutions that had to be run outside of your ceiling joists as opposed to inside of the ceiling joist bays, a false ceiling is going to be the way to go.
Here are a couple of things you need to know about a false ceiling before you dive right in.
There are numerous components for a false ceiling and they can almost all be customized
For the most part, a false ceiling is going to take advantage of the elements of that room, the interior framing, how the walls have been framed, what your clearance is, and a number of other factors that will all come together to play a role in the type of false ceiling solution you decide to move forward with.
“Drop style ceilings” are probably the most common type of false ceiling out there today, and are most often found in the home (especially when it comes time to ceiling design a home office for work) simply because they are inexpensive and relatively aesthetically pleasing.
These kinds of drop ceilings are going to utilize fibre ceiling board panels that are inserted into a lightweight metal frame that is suspended from the ceiling joists themselves. The metal frame allows for lighting and electrical work to be routed behind the scenes, and plumbing solutions can usually be routed behind these drop ceilings as well.
For a more custom look and finish, false ceilings can be framed out with traditional lumber materials, gypsum board, plaster, and drywall. This will essentially just lower the ceiling through the use of cripple studs and strapping, and the finished result will look exactly the way that a traditional ceiling would have looked – though it will be a bit lower.
