Patterned plaster tile

The patterned gypsum tile has a perforated surface, which directs the sounds in the environment to the back of the tile and prevents it from returning, so it has good sound insulation, unlike the plain gypsum coated plate.

The virtual sky plaster tile is made of glass tiles, which means they allow light to pass through them.

6 very important points in installing the virtual sky plaster tile

1- As you know, in the installation of these tiles, the images are put together in the form of a puzzle, so first draw the square footage on the paper and make it into a grid so that you can make the ceiling 60 x 60.

2- If you plan to implement a specific image on the panel, you should pay attention to the fact that the image must be of high quality, otherwise, because the image will be enlarged, you will not get good clarity and results.

3- Try not to install the virtual sky directly on the cement ceiling, because after some time cement fragments will fall on the back of the panel and cause shadows and disrupt the lighting of the ceiling.

4- Be careful that the wires and cables pass exactly on the sides of the panel, and if a wire or cable passes over the panel, it will cause shadows and disrupt the lighting.

5- To make the work clean and more beautiful, try to remove the far away objects carefully.

6- If you intend to implement the virtual sky on a raw roof, be sure to cover the roof with a material such as lead.
