Methods of Installing a Suspended Ceiling

If you’re looking at having a suspended ceiling installed, here at CJ Ceilings and Son Interiors Ltd we can help. Not only do we provide comprehensive, reliable and affordable services in the design and construction of suspended ceilings; we’ve also compiled this overview regarding how such products are installed. Methods of installation might vary from contractor to contractor, but with our help your office space can benefit from a low maintenance and aesthetically professional ceiling solution.

Without experience of the industry, installing a suspended ceiling can be problematic. However, the techniques can be broken down into a few main stages.

1.    Measurements

The first stage consists of taking accurate measurements of the space in which you’re working. Here at CJ Ceilings our experience has long since taught us to take extra care to make sure the data collated at this stage is correct. We take especial notice of alcoves, chimney breasts and other architectural anomalies to ensure that the finished ceiling fits the location seamlessly.

2.    Materials

Following stage one, we’ll compile all the necessary materials and tools using the information gathered. We take everything we need to help guarantee that installation is both briskly conducted and mess free.  Another important consideration at this point is the kind and quantity of ceiling tiles required. We have light reflecting tiles, or products which help to soundproof an office space (amongst others), so we’ll consult clients to make sure the right kind for them is selected. Using the wrong tiles or taking too few to your site will delay the job, which is why we always plan carefully to avoid such a scenario.

3.    Installation

The basic method of installation consists, again, of working in stages. The highly capable CJ Ceilings team will begin with the walls of your office, installing wall angles at the level where the ceiling will rest. Following this, we’ll fit suspension wires, upon which the grid will rest. This grid is composed of components called ‘tees’ (main and cross); it’s important to ensure that tee alignment is symmetrical and level, else ceiling tiles won’t rest properly.

Of course, the very last part of fitting a suspended ceiling is to lay the tiles and configure any fittings or finishing touches, such as lights or air conditioning units. For further information regarding the process, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our advisors either over the phone or online.
