Ceiling Series: suspended ceiling
Suspended ceiling are secondary ceilings. This is an architectural design element used in commercial and residential buildings. They are created using metal grid systems, which are suspended below the ceiling or roof deck using a series of wires.
The suspended ceiling consists of panels or tiles that hang a few inches below the main structural ceiling. In other words, the suspended ceiling does not make up a permanent structural foundation, but rather serves as a covering for the more solid framework above. Different type of Ceiling Suspension Systems are available & specialist after a feasibility study can recommend best option.

Type of suspended ceiling
Exposed grid varieties are the most common type of suspended ceiling. They consist of long metal strips, called “mains,” which are interconnected with shorter metal pieces known as “tees.” Together, the mains and tees form a grid system of 2′ by 2′ or 2′ by 4′ squares, which are then filled with acoustical ceiling tiles.
Concealed grid systems use the acoustical tiles to hide the grid system from view. This creates a smooth, clean look that many find to be aesthetically pleasing. The tile used in a concealed system has a small groove built into it’s perimeter, which slides over the mains and tees to cover them. This type of system is more expensive than an exposed system, and can make it difficult for maintenance personnel to access areas above the ceiling.
