Traditional buildings were extremely linear in design due to the difficulty of creating curves. Modern building methods, however, offer the ability to create an abundance of alternative aesthetics. One architectural application where people like to take advantage of this is ceilings.
Curved Ceiling Materials
To achieve a curved ceiling, architects often specify metal for their projects. Metal is a great material to create curves. A construction of curved aluminium and steel panels allows for convex, concave or undulating designs. When using a suspension system an easy transition from straight to curved panels can be achieved.
The suspension system can allow for straight panels to be used but the suspension allows them to appear curved. The combination of texture and an impressive collection of colours can create a really striking architectural feature.
Reasons for choosing a curved ceiling
Not only do curved ceilings look great but when you consider the ceiling radius: an increase in material surface quantity can result in up to 55% enhancement of absorption surface. This results in fantastic acoustic qualities. The acoustic comfort in an office space, school or public building contributes to our well being as poor acoustic performance can affect health, communication, safety, productivity and learning.
