When choosing a ceiling, facility executives should ask for proof to back up manufacturer claims. Separating the sales pitch from the hard facts is an important step in comparing different manufacturers’ ceiling panels on even ground.
Claims of durability, reflectivity, and resistance to mold, mildew and stains should all be backed up by independent testing. If those aren’t made readily available, ask the manufacturer. They’re generally more than happy to give as much information on their products as necessary.
Once you have the results of the same tests on different ceilings, it’s easy to compare and make the best choice for your facility’s needs.
