Suspended Ceilings

If there is a fire, it is essential that building occupants/users be able to leave the building quickly and safely. Similarly, firefighters and emergency personnel must also be able to reach with few obstacles every part of the structure in order to extinguish flames and assist human life.

A suspended ceiling usually must satisfy rigorous architectural and technical specifications. When planning, designing and installing ceiling construction, it is essential to take account the following characteristics:

  • fire resistance EN class
  • suspended/self-supporting
  • exposure to fire from above/below
  • ease of installation (dismantle/fold/open etc)
  • recessed light fittings
  • soundproofing/thermal insulation
  • erection height
  • other supplementary/complementary materials in use
  • design of underside of ceiling

When the centerline distance is not important, a suspended ceiling is most of the time the best solution. This is a lightweight solution that can easily offer a good fire protection with in addition, a thermal insulation solution by adding wool between the structure and the suspended ceiling. Promat provides suspended ceilings solutions in line with fire resistance code classification of 30 to 120 minutes.
Most of the solutions provided by Promat requires the use of only one layer of board, which means that the system is easy and fast to install.
