The new ceiling is an economical and aesthetically pleasing alternative to acoustic or drywall ceilings in hotel unit bathrooms, food prep areas, clean rooms, and receiving docks. The system, which provides a flat, grid-free washable surface, assembles in six easy steps with just a few components and tools. The ceiling is comprised of durable interlocking PVC panels and rails and meets Class A Fire Rating. The surface is paintable, impervious to water and mold- and mildew resistant, and unzips for cleaning and access overhead. The system saves on lifecycle costs compared to acoustic and drywall ceilings which have to be replaced when moldy from dampness or water. The manufacturer warrants that the system is free from defects in manufacturing, materials and workmanship for 25 years from the date of purchase and that the components will continue to zip together for that time.
