Burgess Ceiling Systems
One of the main ceiling systems that CPS supply are those provided by Burgess. The original Burgess Company was formed in 1928 and made silencing equipment for the car industry. Their expertise in noise reduction led them to branch out into building materials and by 1938 they were producing acoustic ceiling tiles. They expanded into ceiling systems more generally in the early 1950s and have been going strong ever since.
Their main product ranges are suspended metal ceilings, biocote antimicrobial finishes, metalflair metal ceilings, curvature curved ceilings and Eurodek® Fortress Raised Access Floor Panels.
Burgess’s suspended ceilings use a range of different fitting systems including exposed grid, concealed grid and beam grid systems. This allows them to be fitted into a wide variety of building and to accommodate different ceiling tile sizes and finishes.
In areas where a standard suspended ceiling won’t do Burgess have their metalflair and curvature ceiling systems. These engineered ceiling solutions allow architects concepts to be turned into a reality which not only looks good but functions efficiently for the building. The Burgess metalflair system in particular can be used to hide structural features such as beams, columns and bulkheads. The curvature system can be used to create large architectural features to divide up spaces while offering acoustic benefits.
Burgess’s use of steel in the ceiling systems helps to make them highly environmentally sustainable. Much of the steel Burgess use is recycled and once the ceilings have reached the end of their life the steel can be readily recycled again. Their ceiling panels can be painted with a range of finishes to give different amounts of reflectivity. Their standard ceiling ranges have a 20% gloss level which reflects large amounts of light meaning less artificial light is needed and making buildings more energy efficient. Burgess’s dedication to environmental sustainability extends to the packaging in which their products are shipped which is made from between 80% and 100% recycled materials.
