"The French Ceiling"

The origin of the Stretch Ceiling


The origin of the Stretch Ceiling
History of the stretched ceiling is lost in the mists of time. It is known that even in ancient times in Egypt,
Greece and the Roman Empire, a similar method of finishing was used. Silk fabric, matched the color of the walls,
and stretched in the same plane with the main ceiling.

In 1967, a big company in France had the idea to revive the technology of Stretch Ceilings.
To realize this idea, a decision was made to replace the heavy fabric with a very thin and perfect PVC film manufacturing technology stretchable and to be installed  to a special track.

This is why the second name of PVC stretch ceilings is “French Ceilings” .
