Ceiling rafts are suitable for many commercial buildings and community spaces. Providing an attractively designed solution to the acoustic challenges that come with areas of high activity, ceiling rafts also lend themselves to a range of integrated lighting and electrical systems.
Acoustic Benefits of Suspended Ceiling Panels
SAS International provide interior solutions for many commercial buildings, including offices, community premises, conference centres, education institutions, healthcare facilities and retail spaces. Usually, in spaces such as these, the only surface area capable of absorbing sound is the ceiling. SAS ceiling rafts are popular due to their excellent acoustic benefits, controlling sound in busy indoor spaces whilst meeting aesthetic preferences.
Ventilation and Maintenance
Ceiling panels are directly suspended from flat structural soffit or within coffers. This allows for free air movement to the structural slab for natural thermal mass cooling. Due to this airflow solution and the high durability of the panels themselves, very little maintenance is required. Ceiling panels are also suitable both for new build and retrofit projects.
Ceiling Raft Design
Ceiling rafts make it possible for your building to be both practical and interesting. SAS International offer multiple design options for ceiling rafts. Often, our client’s priority is to open up space in their premises to make it suitable for a busy environment. Ceiling rafts can support this, whilst also adding a dynamic element, allowing you to explore more unique designs and create a sense of movement in a static space.
Standard panels are available in curved, flat or angled designs and bespoke design is available for those with aspirations of more unique interiors.
Quality and Safety
As with all of our products, our ceiling rafts adhere to the highest safety standards. We are proud to have achieved ISO 9001 certification and the superior quality of our products is of the utmost importance.
SAS International ceiling panels are also suitable for school buildings that require the meeting of BB93 (Acoustic Design of Schools) standards while balancing the requirements of BB101 (Ventilation of School Buildings). SAS600 provides acoustic absorption under BB93 while allowing sustainable thermal mass cooling to take place.
For buildings where ceiling space is limited, you may find our ceiling baffles offer an alternative effective solution to acoustic challenges.
