Reasons To Install A Wood False Ceiling In A Room

If you are thinking of installing a wood false ceiling in any room, there is no doubt that a wood false ceiling offers many advantages. Here we give you 6 good reasons why you should install a wood false ceiling in a room:

• Sound absorption: The installation of suspended wood baffles or ceilings offers a great acoustic advantage, as we can use sound-absorbing wood acoustic panels. These wood panels are ideal for effective and discreet control of indoor echoes.

• Hiding cables: One of the main reasons for using false ceilings is to allow you to hide cables and pipes for different types of installations (electric, optical, thermal, etc.).

• Mobility: Another great benefit of installing a suspended wooden ceiling is that it can be easily removed or disassembled for easy access to cables or equipment that is inside and needs repair. It also allows for quick replacement of damaged panels.

A wide variety of claddings: There is a huge variety and large catalog of wood ceilings with a large selection and combination of coatings in melamine, natural lacquer wood, lacquer, CPL laminate, HPL, and many more.

• Impact and reaction resistance to fire and moisture: Suspended wood ceilings are designed for maximum wear resistance and, depending on the requirements of the project in question, can also be made of materials with special properties of fire and moisture behavior.

All About Different Types of Ceilings In Australia

There are many types of ceilings available in the marketplace. Some of them are:

1. Timber ceiling

Timber ceilings are also one of the best ceilings to install. You can easily install the ceiling like wood baffles in Australia with the help of professionals.

2. Tray Ceiling

Tray ceilings are multi-level ceilings – they start from one height, then drop as you add levels. As the name suggests, the ceiling layout resembles a tray. The flat ceiling on the outside of the tray surrounds the raised center, which is the highest part of the ceiling. 

Tray ceilings (also known as panned ceilings) become slightly lower with each added step or “level” that surrounds the raised center, creating a three-dimensional effect as the ceiling expands outwards.

These ceilings can add a dramatic effect to a space and also make a room seem taller. Panned ceilings typically have two to three levels, with each level dropping between 5 and 11 inches below the level above. You can add trim or molding as a fascia in between the layers.

3. Cathedral Ceiling

Cathedral ceilings are often found in large living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and even the master bath. Cathedral – or vaulted – ceilings are known for their inverted V-shape, where the tip of the V is the highest point and the sides of the V slope down.

4. Shed ceiling

Shed, or single-slope, ceilings are typically found on the top story of a home, either in the attic or loft.  Creating a distinct look for your room, a shed ceiling will begin at a high point at one wall, then slope down toward the opposite wall.

In commercial architecture, the shed ceiling mirrors a shed roof structure.  It also offers designers a great deal of flexibility. Wood ceilings can also be suspended on a slope using a standard suspension grid if the main runners are positioned down the slope.
