Suspended Ceilings

Profile Interiors offers expert advice on suspended ceilings as well as partitions and office fitouts.

Suspended Ceilings Specialist

Suspended ceilings are often a secondary structure hung below the main structure. It may also be referred to as a ‘drop’, ‘T-bar’, or ‘false’ ceiling and is a staple of modern construction and architecture. The area above the dropped ceiling is called the ‘plenum space’, as it is sometimes used for HVAC air return. The plenum space is also very commonly used to conceal piping, wiring, as well as duct systems.

At Profile Interiors, we have a wide range of products available from a variety of manufacturers to suit any application, including both suspended and commercial ceilings.

Flush plasterboard systems are also available to create special features in your boardroom or reception areas, or for special applications such as food preparation areas that require complete dust free working zones.

Exposed grid systems are a simple, quick and cost-effective way of installing a ceiling to your office, factory or shop. These systems allow easy access to the ceiling space for associated trade work such as electrical and air conditioning which will ensure you get the best price for your overall fit out.

Advantages of Suspended Ceilings

Fire safety is always a factor, ceiling tiles made from mineral fibres or fire-rated wood panels can be used within the construction to meet acceptable standards and ratings. These same tiles can provide the needed additional resistance to meet the “time rating” required for various fire code, city ordinance, commercial, or other similar building construction regulations.

Commercial ceilings: Ease of Modification

Another advantage of suspended and commercial ceilings is that the easily removed panels offer instant access to the plenum, greatly simplifying repairs or alterations.

Wiring and piping installed behind traditional plaster or wallboard ceilings is extremely difficult to modify once the finished ceiling is in place. Wires must either be fished through hollow spaces in the walls behind, or the ceiling must be demolished in order for wiring or piping changes to be made.

Commercial Suspended Ceiling in Burwood, Dandenong, Kew & Mount Waverley

In business, the suspended ceiling is often used in conjunction with hollow steel studs to construct small office spaces out of a much larger cavernous space. Wiring and other services are run through the open ceiling, down through the hollow stud walls, and to outlets in the work areas. If business needs change, the office spaces are easily dismantled and the overall cavernous space reconfigured with a different floor plan.
