Solid Support for your Suspended Ceiling Lighting
Ceiling Pattresses.When your suspended ceiling lighting is better supported, it’s not only your lighting that benefits...
What is a ceiling pattress and what does it do?
Suspended ceilings are designed to lower high ceilings. They help insulate and warm a space and create a modern, clean environment. They’re not designed to carry weight. When you drop your suspended ceiling lighting into place there’s always the risk the added weight of a downlight could cause the ceiling tile to bow or crack.
A suspended ceiling pattress is a ceiling tile sized piece of mdf which sits out of view above the tile. Although only 6mm thick, the mdf construction gives the pattress strength. Cut a hole in the desired position and when you insert a downlight into your suspended ceiling the jaws of the light grip the pattress, not the suspended ceiling tile. This keeps the weight of the downlight on the pattress and protects your suspended ceiling.
Protection for your suspended ceiling. Protection for you.
JCS sells moisture and fire resistant suspended ceiling pattresses to use with your ceiling lighting. Place a pattress everywhere you place a downlight and they’ll keep your ceiling looking pristine for longer.
