Research Ceiling Specs
November 17, 2010 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Facility managers should ask for proof to back up manufacturer claims when choosing a ceiling. Separating the sales pitch from the hard facts is an important step in comparing different 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 directly. They’re generally more than happy to give as much information on their products as necessary to make a sale.
Once you have the results of the same tests on different ceilings, it's easy to compare apples to apples and make the best choice for your facility’s needs.
