Often referred to as false or dropped ceilings, suspended ceilings are commonly used in commercial buildings, retail shops, offices, and educational facilities to name a few.
In general, suspended ceilings are a cost-effective solution if you require a clean and professional look, whilst concealing messy pipework, electrical wires, and other components. A suspended ceiling consists of metal grids, wires, brackets, and ceiling tiles. Making up the majority of the main surface area, ceiling tiles are usually the part of the suspended ceiling that require the largest investment.

The cost of ceiling tiles will depend entirely on various factors like the size required, material type, the quality of the tile, and its additional properties. Here are a few essential factors that can affect the cost of installing a suspended ceiling.
Material specification: Ceiling tiles are available in different materials that can range from many wood grains, plastics, silicones, fibres and other innovative products including tiles with reflective properties that can contribute towards heat retention and protection from moisture damage. In general, plaster board and fibre board tiles are cost-friendly and practical in design.
Tile properties: Some ceiling tiles have extra features useful for certain building types and specific rooms. This can range from highly insulated ceiling tiles, soundproof materials, and fire-resistant ceilings. Fire-resistant tiles are coated with a resin barrier that can make a big difference in protecting your property. Various textures, patterns, and colours are also available, but it does come at a cost from your average ceiling.
Lighting & additional features: Different lighting options exist for suspended ceilings, and circular lighting integrated into the ceiling tile will cost a bit more than a standard rectangular fitting. Additional features to take into account are sprinklers, air conditioning units, sound systems, and additional insulation which will all increase the installation time.
