Industrial suspended ceilings

Industrial suspended ceilings

Have you ever thought about getting industrial suspended ceilings installed? Are you wondering how to get it done and who to ask for the job? There is some good news for you. Installing your own industrial suspended ceilings can be perfectly done all by yourself. Granted, it will take you quite some time for an average room, but it is well-worth the effort. As a result, the job is best undertaken by at least two people who are somewhat experienced in doing technical jobs around the house . However, one does not really need any specific expertise to do the job, as the tools and techniques that are in the process used aren’t too difficult.

You usually don’t need a permit to work on your industrial suspended ceilings, but it is always a good idea to check the regulations at the local building department, just in case. Better safe than sorry. Regulations may differ for industrial purposes.

Industrial suspended ceilings are supposed to be hung from the ceiling joists with a metal grid. This creates the opening between both the joists and the ceiling where wires, pipes, and ductwork can be installed and worked on. A tile ceiling is either glued directly to an existing ceiling or onto so-called «furring strips» that are glued or nailed to the existing ceiling. This type of ceiling works very well both in covering over any older existing ceilings or where a lack of height is a consideration and a suspended ceiling would drop wat too low for comfort. All you need for an industrial suspended ceiling is sufficient head space. Requirements vary, but most codes insist that you need a minimum 7 1/2- feet ceiling height for a new construction.

Industrial suspended ceilings needn’t just look great in your house, they also hold many great advantages. They are great at muffling all sound, covering up wires and cables, supporting lighting systems and they often have fireproof characteristics. For example, ceilings made of mineral fiber on the other hand are a good option for rooms with a possible fire hazard, which is an important factor for industrial buildings But for most other purposes, a classic industrial suspended ceiling is the best choice.

Always make sure you use the right tools while installing your own industrial suspended ceilings is using the right tools. Fortunately, an industrial suspended ceiling isn’t that difficult to install and requires no expensive equipment. However, since you are most likely covering a medium-size to large room, the metal grid requires at least two people to install it. Many of the tools needed for either suspended or tile ceilings are the same, including  metal tape, straightedge, nails, a ladder, safety goggles and face mask, a pencil, chalkline, a drywall pan, a miter box, a screwdriver, tiles, ganer wire, cross tees, a coping saw and many more.
