British Gypsum Ceiling products

British Gypsum has developed a range of acoustic ceilings that combine contemporary, stylish designs with outstanding acoustic properties.

Our Rigitone and Gyptone systems give you virtually unlimited design scope for creating visually stunning rooms and buildings. At the same time, they provide acoustic properties that let you plan and design the optimum acoustic environment for each room.

Gyptone Tiles & Planks

Visually appealing ceiling tilesGyptone suspended ceiling tiles and planks can be used either in conjunction with Gyptone acoustic ceiling boards or as a stand-alone system in their own right. You can choose from five eye-catching designs, inspired by a theme of basic geometric patterns, to create the visual effect that you want. Easy to install and fully demountable, Gyptone can be used either as part of a new build design, or to achieve an instant improvement in aesthetics and acoustics as part of a refurbishment, upgrade or change of use project.

In the majority of buildings, a suspended ceiling needs to provide not only aesthetic form and acoustic performance, but also accessibility. Above the ceiling lies an increasingly complex network of cables, ducting, mechanical equipment and services, all requiring access during installation, maintenance and repair. The CasoLine Quick-Lock Grid provides the perfect suspension system for Gyptone tiles and planks. It is quick and simple to install, and provides a demountable system that is easy to remove, replace and even reposition if required.

Rigitone Range

visually appealing ceiling tilesRigitone allows you to create stunning, seamless, high performance designs with the grid completely out of sight. Secured to our CasoLine MF system, Rigitone boards come in eight distinctive perforation patterns that join together to give an unbroken regular or random, flat or curved pattern across the entire ceiling area.

Rigitone is tough enough to withstand impact, yet versatile enough to form different contours and orientations. It can be painted in any colour which is a key aspect in interior design decisions. With Rigitone acoustic ceilings there are simply no rules, just the flexibility to create exactly the ceiling style you want.
