If you want to upgrade your office decor to a higher level, you don't need to make major changes to layout. A simple upgrade of materials will make a big difference in appearance.
Take, for example, ceiling materials. Most modern high-end offices are relatively simple in ceiling materials such as drywall, mineral wool ceiling tiles, or aluminum gussets.
Typically, some gypsum boards will only be used in key areas of finish (such as reception area and boardroom), and most other parts will be made of mineral wool boards and there will be no modeling treatment. be done.
Using an aluminum gusseted ceiling will add a modern and high class feel, but cost of a ceiling is much higher than that of a mineral wool slab ceiling. Of course, one must use it correctly and other must use it well.
I don't know since when thickness of aluminum gusset of ceiling has become a means of promoting ceiling for everyone. The result of blind propaganda that thicker better is that money was well spent, but effect that should have been did not happen.
In fact, it is unacceptable to use too thin or too thick aluminum gussets for office ceilings.
Most thin aluminum ceiling gussets cut corners and materials, and unscrupulous sellers will thicken thickness of paint layer, claiming that their own plate thickness is up to standard. In fact, such a thin plate has a short service life and is easy to damage. After it gets stuck on keel and pulls, uneven waves will appear, which is not beautiful and not safe.
Most over-thick aluminum gussets are made from low-grade materials mixed with heavy metals such as scrap iron. The thickness is of course considerable, but weight per unit area increases, and as soon as it becomes loose, it is likely to fall and injure people.
When it comes to high quality office ceiling materials, we recommend choosing from following two material categories:
1. Aluminum-magnesium alloy contains some manganese at same time. The biggest advantage of this material is its good oxidation resistance. At same time, due to addition of appropriate amount of manganese, strength and rigidity are improved. It is best ceiling material.
2. Aluminium-manganese alloy The strength and rigidity of plate is slightly better than that of aluminum-magnesium alloy, but oxidation resistance is slightly insufficient.
As a ceiling material, aluminum gusset does not have span problem like plastic steel plate. The key to selection is elasticity and toughness of plate, followed by surface treatment.
The thickness of aluminum gussets used in mechanical engineering is usually 0.6 mm and 0.8 mm. Since an aluminum gusset of this thickness is most cost-effective, it can fully match the load-bearing capacity.
