Fixing Options for Wooden Ceilings

We have several different suspension grids for INTERNAL WOOD SLAT CEILINGS, depending on your layout and design preferences.

CD-1 Concealed Demountable

BCL timber slatted ceiling panels 'lay-in' to a concealed Aluminium sub-grid, which uses solid wood slat fascias to hide suspension points for each BCL timber ceiling panel. This fully demountable wood ceiling grid is ideal for low level flat areas that may require regular access to service void above panels.

CS-1 Concealed Semi-Fixed

BCL wooden slat ceiling panels are screwed up to the underside of a fully concealed Aluminium sub-grid, offering increased security. This system is ideal for high level, banked or wooden ceiling areas that are exposed to wind-loading. All timber panels can still be mechnically unscrewed and demounted by maintenance staff.

CF-1 Concealed Fixed

BCL wooden slat ceiling panels are hung onto a tubular Aluminium sub-grid using proprietary BCL 'panel clips'. This systems is usually reserved for curved timber slat ceiling areas, allowing for the easy creation of complex geometry and double curves in the grid surface for BCL ceiling panels to then clip and fasten to.

Fire Performance of Wood Ceilings

BCL perform full systems fire testing to EN13501-1 on our timber slatted ceilings, in line with Approved Document B regulation for composite lining systems. 

Our solid timber slat ceiling panels are typically pressure treated with non-hazardous (zero biocide) fire retardent to acheive either Euroclass B or C wooden ceilings.

Non-combustible ceilings and fire resistant faux wood can be provided to acheive Reaciton to Fire classes (A1 and A2) using our Aluminium 'Timber Effect' range

For more information please contact us directly.

Wooden Ceilings Acoustic Performance

BCL Acoustic Timber Ceiling panels achieve the very highest acoustic performance, right up to top of Class A acoustic performance band (αw = 1.00)

The larger the open area (gap between slats) the greater the acoustic performance. You can decide your gap based on performance or simply what you would like to see.

Please contact us now to discuss your acoustic requirements further;
