Why lower a ceiling and how to do it with accessible wood ceilings

By Architecture, Construction, Decoración, Decoration

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.       . . .

We call wooden ceiling tiles those interior coverings made of wood and that allow, among others, the beautification of ceilings, the concealment of wiring or channeling and the control of the acoustics of a room.   Spigoacustic wood acoustic panels Spigoacustic is the system made up of linear sound-absorbent panels or acoustic panels designed to offer an optimum acoustic performance. It offers almost 30 models with different degrees of acoustic absorption. In their face side they are made of an MDF support with a sound-absorbing veil thermo-adhered to its hidden side. At sight, they present combinations of channels with circular perforations and finishes in varnished natural wood, high-density veneers or lacquered. See Spigoacustic         Spigotec wood false ceilings Spigotec is the brand of wooden ceiling tiles designed for the installation of false wood ceilings. They serve to keep conduits, pipes and cables hidden, and are used in acoustic conditioning projects. You can choose from more than 40 different models. See Spigotec         Spigoline wood slat cladding Spigoline offers solid wood slat cladding for ceilings or walls, an option that is increasingly in demand due to its high aesthetic impact on any project. In this case, rather than plates, we are talking about grills of parallel wooden slats joined together. Its catalog includes 70 models, some with acoustic absorption capacity.

What are accessible wood ceilings?

Today we will answer the question: What are accessible wood ceilings? Accessible ceilings allow you to take any panel out and put it in again as many times as you want. This feature is ideal when you want to add to complements to the false ceiling, such as air vents, fire or safety detectors, downlights, speakers, or when you have to access the main ceiling. As architectural and decorative demands evolve, accessible ceilings have emerged as a versatile solution to address multiple needs in living and commercial spaces. These are some of the reasons for their success:   Acoustic comfort One of the main advantages of the use of accessible wood ceilings is that they can be made with wood acoustic panels or tiles that help to control the reverberation of a room, providing the necessary acoustic comfort for the correct hearing of speeches, musical performances or simple work conversations.   Wood Wood is the construction and decorative material par excellence and is widely used in the installation of accessible ceilings. It brings warmth and elegance turning any space into an enticing cosy place.       Concealing installations Accessible wood ceilings are false ceilings that provide a space between the suspended ceiling and the original ceiling (plenum) that can be used for ventilation ducts and electrical or fibre optic wiring.   Sustainability Furthermore, sustainable wood panels, like the ones manufactured by Spigogroup, have PEFC and FSC certifications. In addition, suspended ceilings reduce the volume of air that needs to be conditioned, thereby reducing the room’s energy consumption. These certifications guarantee that the wood used comes from sustainably managed forests and that the wood panel has also been prepared by a manufacturer who guarantees that a PEFC or FSC chain of custody system is maintained right through to the end product.       If you liked this post about accessible wood ceilings, you may also be interested in:   - Installation of solid wood slat cladding using the GRID system - Wood ceilings for wineries: tradition and modernity in the great temples of wine - Why is wood one of the best materials for decorating and constructing buildings? - Definition of acoustic conditioning and soundproofing, what is the difference?

In the quest for excellence in winemaking and wine preservation, wood ceilings for wineries emerge as an elegant and sustainable choice for modern wineries. Solid wood slat ceilings or ceilings made of acoustic panels have won the hearts of winemakers and wine lovers for several reasons. Firstly, wood is a natural and sustainable material, reflecting a commitment to the environment. In addition, its ability to regulate humidity and temperature is highly valued in these locations, helping to maintain an optimal environment for ageing wine. Aesthetics also play a crucial role, as wood provides a warm feeling, creating a welcoming and authentic ambiance in the winery, whilst linking with the traditional use of wood in the world of wine (barrels, packaging, etc.). Used in acoustic panel format on ceilings and walls, the wood allows for the acoustic conditioning of not only barrel rooms, but also offices, wine cellars and tasting rooms. Bodegas Portia, Bodegas Tobelos, Bodegas Zinio, Bodegas Piérola, Bodegas Barón de Ley, Bodegas Mauro San Román, Bodegas Olarra and Bodegas Vargas are some of the prestigious wineries that have placed their trust in Spigogroup wood cladding and wood ceilings to embellish their wine temples. A sustainable decision that enhances the beauty and charm of any winery, providing the perfect home for the great wines of the land and the good work of the great winemakers of our country.             If you liked this post about wood ceilings for wineries, you may also be interested in:   - Why is wood one of the best materials for decorating and constructing buildings? - Request a quotation for acoustic panels and wood panelling - 3 modern wood ceilings you’ll want for your next project - How to enhance your interior design with slotted wood panels
