Ceilings play an important role in the success of any building interior. But when they become old and stained, replacing them can be costly, not just taking into account buying the new materials, but also in terms of the productivity and turnover lost when operations are interrupted.
“To replace 1 000m² of suspended ceilings can easily take up to ten days,” Nico van der Merwe from Ceilspray points out. “Not many offices can afford this kind of downtime.”
Don’t replace, refurbish
Restoring acoustic suspended ceilings in turn, can be easy, quick and cost-effective. In fact, it can be as little as a third of the cost of replacing the ceiling, depending on the size and type of boards, according to Van der Merwe.
“Recognising a need for an economical ceiling refurbishment solution, in 2001, Ceilspray developed a revolutionary high-pressure airless spray-painting system that applies a specially formulated acoustic coating to T-strips and acoustic or vinyl ceiling tiles. And over the years, we have fine-tuned our approach and have resolved all kinds of challenges,” he says.
One concern often raised by clients, is the worry that the boards will stick to the T-strips after being sprayed. But Van der Merwe points out that, thanks to the spray method used, the boards don’t stick, unlike when painting with rollers.
How is business affected?
“We normally spray ceilings after hours, so as not to interrupt a business’ operations, and nothing needs to be moved out of the space since we cover all merchandise, furniture, computers and wall and floor coverings before spraying,” states Van der Merwe.
“In fact, we can spray between 500m² and 600m² in one evening and have the space ready for operations to continue in the morning. Not only is it the greener way to go, but it is by far the most economical solution.”
