Versatile designer ceilings

The interface of building materials is a critical factor in the appearance of the overall interior finish. Ceiling trim expert, Pelican Systems, reveals why and what to use.

Ceilings are increasingly being used as a design feature that draws the eye and creates an impression that enhances living and working spaces. Design features such as bulkheads, changes of ceiling level and plasterboard perimeters considerably enhance the aesthetic interest of an interior. However, the interface of building materials is a critical factor in the appearance of the overall interior finish. The Pelican Systems’ ceiling trim range is designed to assist architects, designers and ceiling specialists with solutions to achieve the desired seamless finish required for a decorative feature ceiling. The company’s ceiling trim range includes a number of profiles that have been specifically developed to create interesting features with crisp clean interface details for suspended and plasterboard ceiling installations.

Features and benefits of this range include:

• The precise alignment between sections

• No risk of cracks or uneven gaps at the junction of the wall and ceiling

• Perfectly true lines

• Powder coated white finish as standard

• Predrilled profiles, improving efficiency and costs on site

PS2, 3 & 4 shadowline trim profiles

These aluminium profiles are designed to create a shadowline between a concealed ceiling and the perimeter wall using Jumbo Plasterboard.

Plaster ceiling junction

An aluminium profile designed to facilitate the transition between an exposed suspended ceiling and a flush plastered ceiling, both on the same level with a reveal being created between the two types. The plaster ceiling junction can provide an attractive feature to a suspended ceiling and minimises the need for cut tiles. This solution is particularly effective for irregular perimeters, corridors and small cellular spaces with existing structural walls.

Plaster curve trim

An aluminium profile designed to facilitate a radius wall with a flush plastered ceiling. Used with 16mm radiused Supawood to create a shadowline on the perimeter.
