Ceiling Tiles

Q: Should you put insulation on top of ceiling tiles?

A: It is not recommended for insulation to be installed on top of ceiling tiles, this is primarily due to condensation in the ceiling void which can cause tiles to sag. With regards to mass the tiles can support, the maximum is 0.3kg before independent suspension is required. Additional reasons include:

• Following installation the ceiling void becomes inaccessible. Further access can cause damage to the ceiling tiles.

• The grid structure must be laid out accordingly for additional loads to be added.

• Loads supported directly on the ceiling tiles are not allowed.

• The grid system, including ceiling tiles, does not create an airtight seal.

• The installation of a vapour barrier would be required, although technically and practically this is not possible.
