Chances are you would not know it by the name, but you have definitely seen and been awed by beautiful ceilings. Not sure what we are talking about? Take a look
In most of the cases you know the ceiling of a building is made of concrete. And as you probably guessed it, concrete ceilings aren’t that pretty. So, people came out with a secondary ceiling that would conceal all electrical wirings and imperfections of the concrete ceiling and also facilitate centralised air conditioning. Hence the term “false”ceiling.
False ceiling is made of a combination of POP, Gypsum, MDF, Wood, Laminate or even texture paints. It is not so strong.
POINTS TO CONSIDER
- Air trapped between the actual concrete ceiling and false ceiling provides high insulating preoperty. Therefore, Regulates temperature during summer and winter. A boon in hotter regions.
- Occupies unusable area of a room, therefore can be elegantly decorated without losing the utility space of the room. It could result in claustrophobia as well.
- Availability of Fire-resistant ceilings really pushes the product a notch higher.
- Providing Ventilation could pose a problem as it reduces the air circulation.
But who cares, when it’s bloody damn beautiful, isn’t it?
