Suspended Plaster Ceiling
Applications for Suspended Plaster CeilingsSuspended plaster ceilings are a popular application for both homes and commercial buildings. They offer many advantages, especially when homeowners are planning a renovation project. Suspending a new ceiling over an existing one is often easier (and cheaper) that tearing the old one out and starting from ground zero.
Functional Advantages of Suspended Plaster Ceilings A suspended plaster ceiling offers several advantages over the alternatives:
- Lower ceiling height where it is desired. Many older homes and commercial buildings are designed with high ceilings, creating a warehouse environment that may not be conducive to conversation or comfortable living. Installing a suspended plaster ceiling can quickly and economically solve the unappealing characteristics of a high ceilinged room or building.
- Lighting and acoustics are easier to manage with a ceiling that is lower. It takes less energy to light a smaller volume of space and acoustical problems such as echoing are reduced with a lowered ceiling.
- Getting plumbing , ducting, wiring out of sight is one of the most appealing advantages of a suspended plaster ceiling. Expensive rerouting of pipes and conduits can be avoided while maintaining ease of access to wiring and duct work.
