Exposed T-bar Ceiling Systems

Exposed T-bar Ceiling Systems

The T-Bar ceiling, which is also known as Grid ceiling, is the most popular for offices around the world. The reason for this is that it is very simple to install & sections can be adjusted or replaced easily. Also gives easy access to ducts and wiring in the ceiling cavity. This system also adds a certain design and look to the entire room.

There are plenty of grid patterns, designs & finishes available. Some of your options for tiles are Plasterboard Tiles, Vinyl Plasterboard Tiles, Acoustic Tiles (Acoustic Paneling) & Timber Tiles.

The exposed grid ceiling system offers a view of inverted T sections, unlike the concealed grid ceiling which hides these bars behind plasterboard dropped ceiling. The exposed ceiling tends to be used in commercial or industrial settings and is particularly popular in offices across the globe. A significant reason for this popularity is that it is extremely easy to install the exposed T-bar ceiling systems, and also allows very easy access to ductwork and wiring within the ceiling cavity. The exposed T-bar system also has a particular look which makes it a popular feature of any office setting. There are a range of different options when it comes to choosing the perfect exposed ceiling system, and SBS Direct can offer a number of different ceiling design solutions.
