Stretch ceilings are a type of decorative ceiling that has beautifully stolen the lead from other types of ceilings. Stretch ceilings are made out of a special type of fabric with PVC and plasticizer size, which is heated to the size of the desired ceiling. Maz3D Industrial Group uses special technology for printing all kinds of designs and patterns on stretch ceilings, which possess special beauty and quality that is very rare in Australia. In addition, Maz3D stretch ceiling has been considered by various segments of society due to its special advantages such as fire resistance, washability and mobility, high load bearing capacity, and so on.
What is a stretch ceiling?
Maz3D stretch ceilings can be considered as one of the most modern types of false ceilings. This ceiling is made of PVC fabric that has elasticity. This means that you can heat the fabric to the desired size and then install it on special profiles. Stretch cloth can also be used as a wall covering, which is called a stretch wall. Stretch ceilings and stretch walls have lighting capability, which is one of the important elements of decorating beauty.
The difference between plasterboard and stretch ceiling
Visual effect, weight, maintenance, hygiene and washability, variety of designs and colors in stretch ceilings make a big difference between stretch ceilings and plasterboard.
You may be wondering what a stretch ceiling is. Stretch ceilings can be considered one of the most modern types of false ceilings. This ceiling is made of PVC fabric that has elasticity.

Stretch ceilings and stretch walls have lighting capability, which is one of the important elements of decorating beauty.
What is stretch ceiling material?
Stretch ceiling fabric is made of 90% PVC, 5% plasticizer and 5% permitted additives. The plasticizer on the stretch ceiling creates a stretch feature. The thickness of the stretch ceiling ranges from 0.18 to 0.25 mm and it is one of the very thin and light building materials. Due to the presence of zinc oxide, which is deadly and kills bacteria and fungi, these ceilings are considered antibacterial and due to the abundance of chlorine in its formulation, the stretch ceiling is anti-flammable and so-called refractory.
What are the types of stretch ceiling fabrics?
Stretch ceilings are divided into matte, satin, lacquer (mirror), translucent, Galaxy, Brilliant and Claude stretch ceilings. Among these ceilings, the Lacquer stretch ceiling has a great variety of colors, including more than 150 colors. A noteworthy feature of stretch ceilings is the possibility of printing on stretch ceiling fabrics. The problem with prefabricated ceiling printing has been relatively small (3.20 m). But this problem has been solved by Maz3D Industrial Group by taking UV printing machine with a width of 5.30 meter. With the help of stretch ceiling printing machine, in large construction projects, stretch ceiling can be printed seamlessly. These prints are made in the shortest time and with the best resolution.
What is the reason for naming the stretch ceiling?
Since the fabric of this ceiling is made of PVC and elastic materials, the size of the ceiling can be adjusted to the desired temperature by heating. This property is called elasticity, which can be found in materials made of PVC and plasticizers. The elastic feature of the Maz3D ceiling during installation is that when the ceiling is cut, it is cut 7% smaller than the main dimensions of the ceiling, and then it is stretched 7% using heating and is then installed on the ceiling.
How to install a stretch ceiling?
Special installation tools are required to install the stretch ceiling. First, special profiles are screwed around the installation site. It is then suspended from the ceiling using a four-way retaining clip. At this stage, heating begins with the use of special heaters for installing stretch ceilings. But what is a stretch ceiling heater? The stretch ceiling heater can provide the required heat for the ceiling by using the right angle and throwing the right temperature. The stretch ceiling heater is different from other industrial heaters in terms of air throw angle.
The heater is held by one person at a certain distance from the ceiling, so that the heat does not cause the ceiling to burn, and another person uses special spatulas to install the stretch ceiling by placing the edges of the ceiling into the profiles. It starts in the corners. After installing the corners of the ceiling, the clamps are removed and other parts of the ceiling are also installed. Finally, a fully integrated ceiling is installed without wrinkles and sagging abdomen, and all seams between the ceiling and the wall are closed using sealant to prevent insects and dust from entering the back of the ceiling.
What are the features of stretch ceilings?
Stretch ceiling fabric has many features that distinguish it from other types of ceilings. For example:
Ability to print custom images on stretch ceilings
Very easy to wash and maintain
Ability to move and be transported to a new location
The ability to be transported means that if you have to move furniture, it is possible to separate the fabric and rail from the ceiling and move to a new location. You can then reinstall it on the ceiling of the new location and use it on the first day. Needless to say, the non-flammable ceiling fabric does not mean that it is completely fire resistant, but that it only shrinks during a fire and never catches fire. This ceiling does not drip and prevent the spread of fire. Aluminum or PVC profiles are used to install stretch ceilings, which have flexibility and are a good option for bending, dome shapes or many other shapes.
