Ceiling tiles

Link Shopfitting uses a ceiling system where each tile is manufactured from high grade gypsum boards. A gypsum board is manufactured as a gypsum core sandwiched between two layers of cardboard liner. In structure and texture the board is rather reminiscent of watercolour paper. It is precisely the surface of the cardboard liner that makes it ideal for coating with many types of paint, foils and similar applications. In addition to the fine technical properties of the surface, the flexibility of the board allows punching in the form of perforation holes, amongst other things. Each tile is sized at 600 x 600mm.

Advantages of Suspended Ceilings

Fire safety is always a factor, ceiling tiles made from mineral fibres or fire-rated wood panels can be used within the construction to meet acceptable standards and ratings. These same tiles can provide the needed additional resistance to meet the “time rating” required for various fire code, city ordinance, commercial, or other similar building construction regulations.

Ease of modification

Another advantage of suspended and commercial ceilings is that the easily removed panels offer instant access to the plenum, greatly simplifying repairs or alterations.Wiring and piping installed behind traditional plaster or wallboard ceilings is extremely difficult to modify once the finished ceiling is in place. Wires must either be fished through hollow spaces in the walls behind, or the ceiling must be demolished in order for wiring or piping changes to be made.
