DROP CEILINGS

Choosing the right drop ceiling system for your project can sometimes be confusing and difficult to determine. With so many brands and types of ceilings on the market, its easy to feel overwhelmed quickly. Our team is here to help you make the right choice for your project. Below are some of the basics of suspended ceiling installation.

WHAT IS A SUSPENDED CEILING?

Suspended ceilings have many names. They are also known as drop ceilings, false ceilings, secondary ceilings, and T-bar ceilings. One characteristic that all suspended ceilings share is that they are installed below the original ceiling structure. Although they can withstand a lot of force, they are not structural members like ceiling joists in a home.

The distance between your drop ceiling and your original ceiling structure varies from project to project. Knowing how much to drop your ceiling is crucial in determining the about of work required to perform the install. We always recommend at least 6" of room between your original ceiling and drop ceiling. But, depending on your project, this difference can sometimes be up to 15 feet.

One of the more popular drop ceilings, T-bar ceilings, consist of individual ceiling panels. They come in various shapes and sizes and their main goal is to hide the ceiling above while giving you easy access. The ceiling tiles sit on a grid system. It is very important to ensure your grid system is compatible with your ceiling tiles.

Ceiling tiles are a great option for those looking to improve soundproofing, energy efficiency, and fire safety. They come in a variety of sizes and materials, depending on your specific needs. Ceiling tiles come in many colours and shapes and can add a great architectural feature to your project.

MOST POPULAR MATERIAL?

The most popular type of drop ceiling tiles are the acoustic ceiling tiles. They are the most versatile, durable, and cost-effective material for drop ceiling installation. Acoustical drywall ceilings are usually found in commercial properties, but you can also install them at home. Depending on the ceiling grid and tile system, acoustical ceilings can also provide fireproofing.

Drywall drop ceilings are also very popular depending on your specific application. They can provide exceptional fire resistance and give you a clean, uniform finish. Drywall drop ceilings are generally more expensive than ceiling tiles but are well worth the investment. They provide a strong, rigid ceiling that is durable for many years to come.

One thing to keep in mind about drywall drop ceilings is that there is usually no access to the ceiling above. However, if access is required, you can add an access panel.

THE BENEFITS OF DROP CEILING INSTALLATION

Drop ceilings can bring many benefits to both commercial and residential builds. Many people choose them for additional soundproofing, but they can also help increase the durability of your structure. Here are the benefits of installing a suspended ceiling with a reputable company like Toronto Tapers:

  • Energy efficiency – Increasing energy efficiency is the key to maintaining a property in Toronto. With suspended ceilings, you lower the ceiling’s height. By doing so, you cut the amount of energy needed to heat or cool a space.
  • Eco-friendly options –Modern manufacturers use green solutions to create eco-friendly suspended ceilings. Besides increasing energy efficiency, you can also decrease the embodied energy of your material by installing a drop ceiling made of recycled products.
  • Moisture control – Suspended ceilings can be made moisture-resistant. This way you can avoid dangerous side effects such as mould growth, sagging, and harmful bacteria.
  • Soundproofing – A second ceiling provides better soundproofing for your build. The best type of ceiling for this is the acoustical ceiling. This is especially beneficial for large commercial spaces.
