Advantages of stretch ceilings

  • THE PVC materials can be easily installed on a ceiling or a wall.

 

  • You do not need a pre-treatment of  the ceiling / wall and the procedure takes place with a minimum of waste.

 

  • The minimum void space required is        only 3 cm / 1.2 inches (for a chandelier and low profile spot light). But if appllied a standard spot light system the void space required is up to  10 cm / 3.9 inches). 

 

  • PVC are made of an elastic waterproof material and able to withstand a heavy load (about 100 liters per 1 sq m). Stretch ceilings do not lose their characteristics and quality when flooding happen.

 

  • The material used in this technology is very light (approximately 300 g /sq m) and has a small thickness (0.15-0.35 mm).

 

  • The average sound absorption coefficient - 0.4 Hz. (It is possible to install an additional insulation on request).

 

  • The cost of stretch ceilings is quite acceptable.

 

  • Any type of the lighting equipment, whether chandelier, spotlights, neon or other exotic lighting can be installed.

 

  • Stretch ceilings (walls) are easy to clean with any  soapy detergent, which allows to use them in premises,  where high cleaning standards are required (e.g. educational institution such as: schools, colleges, nurseries. Medical facilities: hospitals, clinics, general practices). 

     

     Do not use solvents or abrasive materials!!!

 

  • Stretch ceilings (walls) are easily removed.

 

  • Stretch PVC material is able to withstand a heavy load (about 100 liters per sqm). It does not loose their characteristics and quality if flooding happen.

 

 

SUCH CRITERIAS GIVES AN ABSOLUTE ADVANTAGE OVER SUSPENDED TILES OR PLASTERBOARD CEILINGS!!!

Disadvantages

  • The power of light bulbs should not exceed 60 watts, for halogen bulbs - 35 Watt. The distance from the bulb to the surface of ceiling is calculated in accordance 60W=60 cm, but depending on the design of chandeliers - the distance can be reduced. Thereby, we are recommend to use LED lights, which run cooler.

 

  • PVC material is not resistant to the mechanical damage by a sharp object. That means, the use of stretch ceiling / wall in certain areas is impractical.
