In comparison to conventional reinforced concrete ceilings, coffered ceilings have a considerably reduced dead weight, which minimizes sagging of the ceiling. Due the construction height, the crosswise spanned ribs and the t-beam effect, large spans can be realised with a low concrete consumption.
Apart from the economic efficiency, the special design effect also supports the construction of coffered ceilings. With individually shaped recess formers, not only simple square or rectangular shapes but also visually appealing depressions, which support the architecture of the building, are designed. In addition, unique optical accents can be set using natural or artificial light sources in the coffered ceiling.
