False ceiling for small office cubicle in warehouse
Hi, I am planning to make an office cum boardroom in our warehouse by using partitions. How is the false ceiling fixed on the partitions or is it to suspended from the roof?
Will be greatful for your assistance, Many Thanks
From your description you have 2 options. Firstly when you build the stud partitions also frame out the ceiling using timber & hang ceiling off these new ceiling joists . Your second option is to suspend a metal frame ceiling off the roof above by way of wire ties , this is standard practice for the work you describe. Look for a Suspended Ceiling specialist or buy off internet & DIY , it is not difficult to do.
