A false ceiling is currently a widely used solution in any decorative or architectural project for the home, the workplace or public buildings. There is no doubt that the beauty and warmth of a false ceiling that is made of wood is without a doubt one of the best options currently available. These are some of the advantages of the use of a wood false ceiling in a building.
– It hides installations: this tends to be the main reason for installing a false ceiling, as you can hide electrical wiring and air conditioning and heating ducts behind it, while at the same time embedding spotlights and grids, as well as sensors, alarms and various home automation devices.
– If what you require in a room is acoustic conditioning, a false ceiling is the ideal location for the acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood that comprise the acoustic ceilings that help us control reverberation time. It is also an essential area to act upon when you are trying to achieve thesoundproofing of a room.
– Energy savings: the use of a false ceiling means reducing the height of the ceiling in a room and therefore the volume of air that has to be heated or cooled. At the same time, the air gap that is formed between the built ceiling and the false ceiling also contributes to the thermal and sound insulation of the room.
– Improved appearance: a false ceiling allows you to establish separate environments, and show off special woods that enrich the aesthetic experience of the user.
