Light Trough Ceiling
Jash contacted us to assist with light trough ceiling design and installation in Weltenvreden Park as part of his residential project.
He already had a clear picture in mind of the light trough and had an specific aesthetically feel in mind.
He desired to accentuate lounge using light troughs and to create feature walls by using specific colors to accentuate the walls.
We had to fit the light trough ceiling frame directly to existing ceiling and make good afterwards.
The final design was a ceiling with a light trough, the drop from the ceiling to the bottom edge was carefully planned to fit in with the height and with of the room and it was decide to go with a slim feel. Too little or too much of a drop is aesthetically displeasing.
It looks amazing and compliments the surrounding areas amazingly.
The choice of ceiling worked perfectly.
The light trough ceiling was created from galvanized main tees and cross tees as per supplier recommendation. Corner sections done with galvanized angle and all secured with wafer tech screws.
It needs to be noted that accuracy when constructing the structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality.
After the bulkhead structure was completed 9.5mm Gypsum board cladding was used and corners trimmed with corner beads. Care needs to be taken that this done properly as a corner bead fitted a slight bit out of position will have a disastrous effect on the final aesthetic look.
After all of the above was completed two coats of Rhinolite was applied to the bulkhead ceiling and skimmed to a smooth flawless finish. Jash’s painter then applied paint to the light trough ceiling and fitted LED strips lights and down lights.
Well done to the team!!!
