The Benefits of Using GRG Ceiling Reflectors
As with light troughs and blind boxes, the main benefits of using GRG ceiling light reflectors are also related to aesthetic appeal. Reflectors also offer an accurate, consistent, and relatively simple method of forming the lighting design required for a project, using the same suspension material and jointing process as plasterboard ceilings.
Deciding to use glass-reinforced gypsum instead of another material for ceiling reflectors also presents a number of advantages to any project. These are mostly related to the material’s strength, flexibility when unset, and lightweight.
The high strength and surface hardness of GRG mean a greater level of durability for products manufactured from it. The flexible, adaptable nature of it during the moulding process also means that nearly any shape can be reached quickly and in the most cost-effective manner. When noting this alongside its lightweight, it should be more apparent that GRG creates a less labour-intensive installation. It also allows for locations which are not as easily accessible to be given the same finish as more accessible ones. Altogether, this demonstrates that the material can offer a project a more economical installation overall.
GRG is also a Class 0 fire-rated material, meaning it is completely fire retardant, and its density can be increased to accommodate acoustic needs should this be necessary. It is also easily dressed and decorated to match any design, or to become a distinguishing feature or focal point if the idea is to draw the eye rather than blend in. Both are open to options for painting the material in a range of styles and colours, and even different material textures can be replicated.
