Climate Crisis is Real

With increasing climate change, never has it been a more important time to face the inescapable truth of the climate crisis.

Notably, more construction businesses have been searching for innovative sustainable solutions to tackle their environmental impact. The aim of carbon neutrality and minimal material wastage. At UK Suspended Ceilings, we’re constantly changing our sustainability plans. We work with climate-conscious ceiling tile manufacturers, helping us to supply customers with eco-friendly materials.

From products to our own sustainable and environmental impact, here are just a few ways you can make your suspended ceilings be sustainable:

Sustainable Ceiling Tiles

Mineral Fibre Ceiling Tiles

Did you know you can recycle your ceiling tiles? Mineral fibre ceiling tiles are made up of a variety of recycled and natural materials. Like recycled newsprint, clay, perlite, starch, and fibreglass, with different quantities of each being used depending on the performance of the tile.

It’s estimated that hundreds of thousands of square metres of ceiling tiles are sent to landfills every year. UK Suspended Ceilings, encourage our customers to recycle their end-of-life mineral fibre ceiling tiles at every opportunity.
