Information About Gypsum Board Ceilings

Gypsum board ceilings, also known as false ceilings are a type of an artificial ceiling created as a lowered extension of the existing ceiling. Also known as dropped ceiling, T-bar ceiling, suspended ceiling or grid ceiling, this type was first used only in commercial constructions. The gap between the actual ceiling and false ceiling is used to install lighting and air-conditioning vents. But with time and design development, this type of ceiling has now become a part of households in Uganda. Commonly used in newly constructed homes, false ceilings are a way of adding sophistication to the indoors or interiors of homes.

While in the commercial form this type completely blocks the actual ceiling of the building using gypsum board or steel panels, in households, a more designer form is made using Plaster of Paris (POP)


Designed in different shapes and height, the artistic look of false ceiling adds to the décor of a home.

To add to the beauty, you could also get some interesting carvings on the higher ceiling using Plaster of Paris or POP.

It is good at absorbing heat, too.

A word of caution

If not maintained well, gypsum board ceilings can be home to pests and spider webs.

If the actual ceiling in your home is not too high, adding false ceiling could make your room look smaller and claustrophobic.

A hanging structure, the false ceiling is not as solid as the actual ceiling. Thus, in case of any calamity or installing of any heavy lighting or other fixtures could cause a damage.
