A fresh ceiling alternative

PVC ceiling boards are a smooth, cost-effective option for building interiors.


Offering an innovative alternative to traditional gypsum boards, PVC Ceilings South Africa supplies practical ceiling systems which are manufactured from PVC resins and auxiliary materials.

The interlocking PVC panels come in a variety of colours with matt or gloss coatings in lengths of 3,6m, 4,7m and 6m by 250mm wide. According to managing director, Pieter van Heerden, they also have antifungal properties, are corrosion-resistant, fire-retardant (B/B1/B2 SANS 428), termite-proof, waterproof, easy to clean and no further maintenance is necessary after installation.

“It is suitable for any indoor area requiring a fixed, non-porous, non-fibrous and non-absorbent ceiling. They have the added benefit of being efficient insulators in summer and winter, due to the hollow core structure of the panels, and can reduce energy consumption in the home by eliminating the need to heat or cool it.”

In the past 2 years PVC Ceilings supplied ceilings to four Gauteng schools, 108 units in a Buccleugh housing scheme and near to a thousand homes that were part of residential projects in Kimberley and Pampierstad.

Especially in these low-cost RDB developments, the future upkeep of the home and the affordability thereof were main considerations.

Dries Botha, national group procurement manager at Motheo Construction, points out that the product was specifically chosen because it doesn’t need painting. “Apart from the substantial savings, PVC ceilings are also lightweight, easy to handle and store, fully waterproof and the thermal properties are good,” he comments.

From housing to commercial projects these ceilings are a great alternative.
