While very popular in European countries stretch ceilings technology is practically unknown in North America. Prior to opening its manufacturing facility in Fremont, the Los Altos, CA based Stretch Ceilings Inc. had to use manufacturers located outside of California and sometimes outside of US which had significantly slowed the time to deliver the product to the customers and added to the cost of the ceiling. Now with its own new manufacturing plant Smart Ceilings, Inc. has better control of the whole process, improves quality of the product and can manufacture the ceiling to be installed on the day of the order if needed. The final cost to the client will also drop making the stretch ceiling more affordable.
As Alex Novel, the company’s President and CTO explains: “Stretch ceilings have a number of advantages compared to traditional ceilings: unique reflective ability to incise ceiling height; they are water resistant; may be printed, back-lit, acoustic, antibacterial, non-sweating and dirt-resistant. Stretch ceiling also offers a full range of high-technology trim that can be adapted to any situation. Stretch ceiling coverings are installed cold and dry: quick, easy, clean, odor- and headache-free. The finishes are perfect and the result, impeccable. Respectful of the environment and your well-being, all parts of the system are recyclable. No cancer-causing substances (known as CMTs) and volatile organic compounds (known as VOCs). Stretch ceiling has certifications, which meet all standards currently in effect. It is ideal for new construction and renovations in all public and residential areas and designed for all professional and domestic uses.”
In addition to manufacturing ceilings to be installed by the Stretch Ceilings Inc., own installers, the company now offers ceilings manufacturing at wholesale prices to other installers and dealers in US and Canada. The wholesale package includes training of installers offered to companies entering the stretch ceilings line of business.
Smart Ceilings, Inc. works closely with interior designers, architects, real estate developers and business owners offering extensive selection of colors and textures of stretch ceilings membrane.
