Standard Ceiling Heights[edit]

anybody know what the standard ceiling heights are in the US and in other countries? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 158.81.251.201 (talkcontribs) 11 September 2005

Ramble on[edit]

this page has way too much information about nothing. I'm gonna come back and cut it down to size. The standard lowest ceiling height in the us is 8' with higher ceilings most likely going up in 16" increments but anything is possible. (don't add that to the article I write only for your information) Enneagon 05:18, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

A bit more would be good, ideas for development[edit]

As opposed to 'Ramble on' above I thought the page was way too underdeveloped. It doesn't talk about the construction of ceilings, about the uses of ceilings and accessibility for wires etc. The history of ceilings. References to famous ceilings. Finishes and decoration of ceilings. I'm sure with a bit of thought a lot more would occur to me. Yep your thing about any standards for ceilings sounds good too. Most of this would just be cross referencing but it would be good to have something that ties it together. Dmcq (talk) 08:35, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry it did mention dropped ceilings. Missed that, sorry whoever put it in. Splitting into sections with headings makes things like that stand out. It is the start of a reasonable article but needs work. Dmcq (talk) 08:40, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
How is an article on something so basic and important so incredibly barren/sparse on details? This previous comment is years old and somehow still relevant after all this time. Almost everything I was hoping/expecting to find in the article (e.g. general information about different types of ceiling finishes/surfaces/decoration) is completely missing. The placement of the images within the article feels really weird and disruptive, too. Anyway, agree with above ideas/suggestions. 71.184.207.137 (talk) 23:47, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Have to agree with 71.184.207.137 - pretty sparse info here - half the article is taken up with the fire resistance info. See floor for a better style of treatment. I did, however, move the galleries down to the bottom of the respective sections. --Marjaliisa (talk) 05:08, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Fire-resistance rated ceilings - pictures[edit]

Another editor removed most of the pictures claiming "undue weight". I believe that only showing the hose-stream test would be misleading. You can't even see the subject ceiling in that picture. What you see in that picture alone is the UL 2'x2' boxed steel frame rim. That would make people think that such an independent ceiling is 2' thick. That is not the case. The listing clearly indicates a 6-3/4" thickness. The boxed concrete and steel frames are used to hold all test samples. The same thing goes for walls. These test frames are used over and over again. --Achim (talk) 14:09, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Stretch(ed) ceilings[edit]

The article has a photo of a "stretched ceiling" and a redlink to an unwritten article entitled "stretch ceiling". What are these? Can someone who knows at least write a stub and put that picture in it? Credulity (talk) 10:56, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
