Many possibilities


Stretch ceiling gives incredible possibilities of interior arrangement, obtaining any shape of a new ceiling is limited only by the imagination of the designer. With the use of a stretch ceiling it is possible to create multi-level, flat constructions using arches, ovals and other geometric figures. A wide range of colours of foil, both glossy and matt, as well as the possibility of printing on them is an additional inspiration. Thanks to such a wide range of possibilities we can easily adapt it to the already existing interior, and very quickly because the installation of a stretch ceiling usually takes several hours.


Lighting over a stretch ceiling


Lighting over a stretch ceiling gives us the temperature of light we choose and the shadow-free effect. Such light is not striking, so it is suitable for lobbies, waiting rooms and reception areas, where the light shines all the time and cannot tiring the eyes. Replacing the fluorescent lamp from above the stretch ceiling will not cause any problems - then we unfasten the fabric in the right place, and then we can attach it back.
