The surface finish is and remains the most obvious feature of a ceiling. Thanks to specially developed technology, there are a wide variety of possible finishes to leave a lasting impression. As standard, metal ceilings are powder coated with a uniform colour. Modern techniques enable this “non-combustible” powder coating to be applied to the ceiling tile, not only in all colours imaginable, but also motifs, wood-look finishes or with abstract designs. Alternatively, these effects can also be achieved by applying a foil coating. In addition to this, there is also the possibility to influence the optic and performance of a metal ceiling through certain processes, such as anodising

Furthermore, special coatings according to the application offer an individual focus. Anti-bacterial coatings are available especially for areas with increased hygiene requirements, which actively fight to help prevent the spread of bacteria and germs. Resistant coatings have also been developed that enable easy removal of graffiti and similar hard to remove marks, which are extremely popular in public places. These coatings are also suitable for external use and are weather and fade resistant.

Sound absorbing coatings serve a very different purpose and significantly contribute to ensuring speech is intelligible within noisy open plan offices. In addition, other sound absorbing measures can be taken (e.g. acoustic fleece inserts) Both external ceilings and swimming pool ceilings on the other hand benefit from corrosion resistant coatings. These are not only applied to the ceiling tile but also to the supporting grid structure so that the ceiling does not collapse.

The standard product range of most metal ceiling manufacturers includes perforations that not only can change the aesthetic of the entire construction but also positively influence the sound absorption values. There is also no limit to individuality with a range of perforation patterns available. Should you still require something more unusual, extraordinary stamping and embossing techniques can meanwhile achieve three-dimensional effects. Lively effects can be conjured up on the ceiling with the incidence of light through the windows or luminaires. Expanded metal ceilings use this phenomenon as well. Lighting above the ceiling can improve the created effects. Therefore the expanded metal mesh size that more or less allows the ceiling void to be visible, contributes to increased security as fire and smoke sources can be quickly located.
