False Ceiling

What is False Ceiling

Ceilings are one of the most important elements of your home as they offer the maximum unobstructed view of the interiors. But many of us don't consider this space while renovating or decorating. False ceilings are a quick and easy way to transform the look of your room completely, while enhancing the d├ęcor of your interiors. Suspended below your main ceiling via a metal frame, false ceilings can be designed with curves or geometric shapes, painted different colours, and complemented with diffused or spot lights. They are guaranteed to make your rooms more stylish, better lit, cooler, quieter and more energy efficient.

False Ceiling FAQs

How does a false ceiling help to keep the room cool?

A false ceiling creates a layer of insulation between the main ceiling and the room which traps some of the heat coming from the roof. This reduces the transfer of heat to the room and keeps it cooler.

How does a false ceiling reduce electricity consumption?

Since the false ceiling is installed a layer below the main ceiling, it reduces the volume of the room that needs to be cooled, making the AC more effective. The AC cools faster and therefore uses less electricity.

How much time will it take to do a false ceiling in a home?

A false ceiling using gypsum plasterboard is very easy to do and takes approximately 1 to 2 weeks to complete depending on the complexity of the design. Your false ceiling can be ready in as much time or faster than it takes to get your home painted.

Do false ceilings require any special maintenance?

False ceilings are easy and hassle free to maintain, and do not need any special care. Similar to your plastered and painted walls and other surfaces, any accumulated dust or dirt can be wiped away easily.

What is the life of a false ceiling?

A false ceiling built using good quality metals and with the correct jointing and finishing process will last as long as regular building interiors.

How is a Gyproc ceiling better than a POP ceiling?

POP is a locally produced material with no controlled manufacturing checks in place. The use of the POP powder on a chicken net is time consuming, very dusty and crude. The whole process of making a false ceiling with POP could take as long as one month.

Gyproc false ceilings use pre-fabricated sheets of gypsum plasterboard which are screwed to a metal frame. It is a fast, clean, and hassle-free process with very little dust and mess.

What is the importance of metal framing in a false ceiling?

The metal framing is the spine of a false ceiling and is what holds it together. The strength and life of the false ceiling depends entirely on the quality of the metal components used. Gyproc metal is produced to strict ISO certified standards and provides the false ceiling a strong foundation. Though this part is never visible, it is the key element of the structure.
