Materials

CEIR’s open cell ceilings are made of pre-painted aluminium or steel alloys. Thanks to the quality of base materials used, which are produced according to norms EN, ASTM and in compliance with ECCA (European Coil Coating Association), CEIR’s ceilings feature either the high ease of installation and the reaction fire Euro Class A1 (un-combustible).

Generally, the aluminium or steel nails are pre-painted on both sides: a polyester paint on top side, to achieve decorative purpose, in a nominal thickness of 20 microns, a protective paint on back side. A range of alternative paint processes is also available on request to suit highly specialized uses. The nature of these products allows for use of CEIR’s open cell ceilings in external applications also.

Aluminium: a sustainable choice
Aluminium is the main material from which CEIR ceiling systems are made.
The reason for this choice is due to the many advantages that aluminium offers both the designer and the installer:

  • lightness: its weight (about one-third that of steel) makes it extremely easy to transport, install and dismantle the ceiling, thus saving on related costs;
  • durability and strength: being naturally covered with a thin layer of adherent and compact oxide (alumina Al2O3), it is highly resistant to air and various weather conditions. Even without special treatments, the aluminium alloys used to make the ceiling do not deteriorate over time, so they do not require any maintenance and/or restoration;
  • eco-sustainability: it is considered the "green" metal by excellence; in fact, it is about 70% recycled through a process that uses one twentieth of the energy compared to the production of virgin material.
  • versatility: the possibility of choosing the type of chemical composition and finish (pre-painted, anodized and others) is very wide and thus allows to meet any type of request both functional and aesthetic;
  • aesthetics: it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and impressive metals, due to its natural color and lightness, as confirmed by the wide use of this material in architecture, interior design and industrial design;
  • reaction to fire: it belongs to Euro Class A1 (Class 0) and therefore does not generate any harmful or dangerous emissions in case of fire.
