Type of Metal Ceiling
Grid ceiling tiles ceiling tiles range provides a wide selection of preformed surface designs and textures which allow the creation of outstandingly beautiful yet practical ceilings for commercial use. They are functional, easy to install and no further painting is required after installation. One of the most cost effective ceiling boards available in the market.
Fire-rated ceiling system has been designed to provide fire resistance in 60mins and 120mins. Resistance to incipient spread of fire. Ceiling systems may be fixed as either a Direct Fixed System, Suspended System, or Direct Clipped (Furred) System.
Cove lighting is a form of indirect lighting built into ledges, recesses, or valences in a ceiling or high on the walls of a room. It directs light up towards the ceiling and down adjacent walls. It may be used as primary lighting, or for aesthetic accent, especially to highlight decorative ceilings. Cove lighting is valued because it hides the fixtures and provides a very even, warm light.
A pelmet (also called a “cornice board”) is a framework placed above a window, used to conceal curtain fixtures. These can be used decoratively (to hide the curtain rod) and also help insulate the window by preventing convection currents. A pelmet can be made of plywood, and may be painted, or fabric covered.

Type of Fire Protection System Application
Float glass is a sheet of glass making raw materials, typically consisting of sand, soda carbonate and other chemicals before floating out on a bed of molten metal. Due to both its high quality with no additional polishing required and its structural flexibility during production, it can easily be shaped and bent into a variety of forms while in a heated, syrupy state. Available in thicknesses ranging from 5mm to 19mm and can be cut to size for architectural applications or further processed into specialized glass.
Is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. It is more resistant to impact breakage, able to withstand uniform loads better and decrease the risk of thermal breakage. If it is broken, it shatters into small fragments, thus preventing major injuries.
As a result of its safety and strength, tempered glass is used in a variety of demanding applications, including architectural glass wall or doors, shower screen etc.
Laminated glass is produced by using two or more pieces of glass bonded between one or more pieces of adhesives called Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB), using heat and pressure. If the glass is broken fragments tend to adhere to the PVB interlayer thereby reducing the risk of injury from failing glass and helping to resist further impact or weather damage. Laminated glass is also used to increase the sound insulation rating and can block over 99% of the UV rays while allowing most of the visible light through.
Is made by adding color pigments to the raw materials in the float process. Standard colors include bronze, grey, green and blue. The color density is a function of thickness, as the glass gets thicker the density of the color increase and the amount light transmittance decreases. Because tinted glass reduces the amount of light transmitted, it also absorbs some of heat solar energy, called heat absorption. This added heat causes thermal stress which may affect the glass and can cause it to break if it is not tempered.
This kind of glass is manufactured by ejecting sand or an abrasive material at a very high speed on the glass. It has the effect of rendering the glass translucent by the scattering of light, thus blurring images to obtain privacy while still transmitting light. Hence they are widely used in areas which require privacy such as bathroom glass, shower cubicles etc.
Also known as Crystal Clear or Extra Clear Glass. Low-iron glass is a type of high-clarity glass that is made from silica with very low amounts of iron. This low level of iron removes the greenish-blue tint that can be seen especially on larger and thicker sizes of glass. Low-iron glass is used for aquariums, display cases, solar panels and other applications where clarity is desired.
Painted glass is any form of clear glass that is painted from the back side and viewed from the front side. Painted glass widely used for architectural spandrel glass, colored glass walls for interior glazing, colored glass back splashes, glass marker boards and more. Painted glass is a modern alternative to other surfacing materials such as tiles and laminates in the world’s decorative and architectural industries.
Heat soaking involves heating the Toughened Safety Glass to 290°C for a given period of time, then slowly cooling it. This process accelerates the expansion of nickel sulfide (NiS), and at this temperature glass panels with nickel sulfide stones are likely to shatter. The purpose of heat soaking is to reduce the incidence of Toughened Safety Glass breaking spontaneously after installation. Typically used for high rise glass facades, overhead glazing, balconies and balustrades or any application where a superior Toughened Safety Glass is required.
Is a type of reflective glass that appears to be clear while reflecting heat back to its source. It reduces heat loss while providing maximum light transmittance, and also helps resist UV rays. Low-e glass can be used in a number of applications, such as: door glazing, windows and curtain walls, spandrel glass, skylights and more.
Is annealed glass that has silver backing applied by wet chemical deposition process and is then covered with a protective mirror backing paint. It can’t be tempered. To comply with safety glazing requirements, mirror can be laminated with a PVB interlayer, or a safety backing sheet of adhesive backed polyethylene may be applied to the back of the mirror.
Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum
Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) is a type of composite material made from a mixture of gypsum plaster, water and glass fibers. . This unique combination allows for the creation of lightweight yet sturdy building components, offering a host of benefits for both residential and commercial construction projects.
Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum presents an innovative and sustainable solution for modern construction challenges. Offering a compelling combination of strength, versatility, and cost-effectiveness, GFRG is increasingly embraced by professionals across the industry.
As we continue to explore advancements in building materials, it is clear that GFRG has a promising future in transforming the way we construct buildings. By incorporating this versatile material material into their designs, architects and builders can create structures that combine aethetic appeal with durability and functionality.
Key Advantage of GFRG:
- Lightweight and Versatile: One of the primary advantages of GFRG is its lightweight nature, allowing for ease of transportation and installation. Additionally, it is highly versatile, offering endless possibilities in terms of design and customization.
- High Strength and Durability: GFRG products are renowned for their exceptional structural strength, making them suitable for load-bearing applications. This material exhibits excellent resistance to cracking, shrinkage, and warping, ensuring long-lasting, robust structures.
- Fire Resistance: GFRG is an inherently fire-resistant material. The presence of glass fibers enhances its overall fire resistance, making it an ideal choice for buildings that require adherence to strict fire safety standards.
- Sound Insulation : With its dense composition, GFRG also provides excellent sound insulation properties. This makes it an excellent choice for buildings where noise reduction is a priority, such as hospitals, hotels, or recording studios.
- Rapid Installation: Due to the pre-fabricated nature of GFRG p[anels, installation is significantly faster compared to traditional building materials. This results in reduced construction timelines, saving both time and money.
- Sustainability: GFRG is an eco-friendly alternative as it can be manufactured using mainly recycled materials. Moreover, its long lifespan and recyclability contribute to a reduced carbon footprint and a more sustainable construction industry.
