Suspended ceiling tiles for commercial kitchens require the ability to control hygiene levels at the forefront of consideration.
Bacteria and fungi can build up on the face of any surface if not controlled. Many ceiling products within this range often include a ‘wipeable’ type face for easy hygiene control.
The most popular products that offer this wipe-clean vinyl face are usually manufactured from a gypsum plasterboard base (approximately 6-9mm) with a vinyl or PVC face.
A further consideration with a hygiene-type environment would be humidity resistance. The nature of the appliances used in food preparation areas could have a knock-on effect on the ceiling tile, causing possible sagging unless a suitable product is chosen.
Ceiling Tiles UK would recommend using products with a humidity resistance rating of 90% or more to be safe.
