MF / Grid Ceilings
An MF ceiling is where plasterboard is fixed to a concealed metal grid which is in turn then fixed to a structural soffit above. This therefore creates a void (of a depth to suit the structure) above the ceiling which can be used for services etc. The plasterboard can then be finished using the taping and jointing system if required. The type of plasterboard used can be designed to enhance particular fire, acoustic and thermal requirements.
The same MF system can be used to create feature bulkheads in ceilings. These can be constructed purely in an aesthetic context to create dropped levels in ceilings, to create curved features or other specific design concepts such as coffers. Alternatively these can be built around and hide services such as air conditioning units and light fittings.
Grid ceilings consist of tiles hung within a metal grid system. There are many different tile types and styles available to suit each development and advice can be given in respect of these.
