In the past, false ceilings in bathrooms were typically constructed from Bison board or acrylic sheets – materials which weren’t particularly durable and susceptible to humidity damage.
Today’s false ceilings are often constructed from aluminium composite panels (ACP). ACP ceilings are more durable and long-term compared to their competitors and moisture resistant. Plus they come in an assortment of colours, textures, and finishes. ACP panels make an excellent addition to bathrooms as they add visual style while being simple for installation by professionals.
2. PVC Ceiling

Insulating curtains provide excellent insulators in winter and summer and help lower energy bills, not to mention being easy to maintain and clean without mildew or mould growing on them. Not to mention there’s also plenty of options when it comes to color and style – even adding lights!
3. ACP Ceiling
False ceilings, also referred to as secondary or dropped ceilings, serve to conceal pipes and electrical wiring for an uncluttered appearance. Suspended beneath the main ceiling using suspension cords or struts, false ceilings can be made out of various materials; some might work better in certain environments than others.
Traditional false ceilings were constructed using Bison board or acrylic sheets; however, moisture damage often rendered them ineffective over time. ACP’s moisture-proof properties make its moisture resistance an invaluable asset.
ACP ceilings are highly moisture and fume resistant, yet easy to maintain, making them the ideal material for bathroom false ceilings. Their convenient construction, easy modeling, fire prevention features and wide variety of colors makes ACP an appealing choice among designers and engineers; additionally they contribute significantly towards decoration.
