Tension ceilings tissue and have many other advantages.
- Firstly, they are not afraid to temperature changes, and temperature 40 degrees: how with a plus sign and a minus sign for such a ceiling is not critical. This allows you to pull the canvas on an unheated loggia, in a holiday home or on the terrace.Ceiling fabric itself is an excellent acoustic and thermal insulation materials.
- Secondly, indoor large area, stretch woven ceilings - is the most suitable option.They usually seamless, and it is precisely the seam is a "weak link" in the construction of a stretched film.

- For most dwellings such fabric width is sufficient.In cases where the dimensions of the ceiling are this high, preference is given to PVC film that can be welded.
If you need to connect two paintings are still there, then, for concealing joints need to use decorative elements.
- But more often, designers are finding another way out: ceiling stretch fabric is not established throughout the area, as well as a separate fragment of the suspended structure.The cloth is combined, for example, plasterboard or wood or gypsum board.
