Lowering the ceiling and installing accessible wood ceilings continues to be a vital intervention in commercial premises projects or in the renovation of old buildings, even if it may not be as necessary in a new home.

The primary reason is economic. Lowering the ceiling of a room reduces the volume of air (in cubic metres) that needs to be climatized, thereby lowering the energy bill for the space. Additionally, with the installation of false ceilings, we have the option to add insulating elements that will also help maintain the room's temperature.

Moreover, there are significant benefits to making the ceiling accessible. Installing an accessible ceiling creates a new space, known as a plenum, where all technical solutions, such as sensors, air conditioning, and electrical wiring, can be placed. This keeps them hidden and prevents them from affecting the aesthetic of the project. Consequently, this allows for more welcoming and brighter spaces that, thanks to the wood, also convey a sense of elegance and warmth.

To lower a ceiling, you can utilise some of the options available in the Spigogroup catalogue of accessible wood ceilings:

 

- Exposed form: the exposed or flush mounting consist on the panels rest right above the profile.

 

 

- Semi-exposed T15/T24: the system of semi-exposed form allows the panels with inclined edges to conceal partially the profile.

 

 

- Concealed form T-24: the system of concealed form T-24 is based on an inverted “T” wich hides the profiling.

 

 

- Perfil Fineline T15: the system of fineline form allows the panels to rest above the fastening profile with spacers.
