SHTM Building Component Series Ceilings



This SHTM offers guidance on the technical design and output specifications of ceilings. Due to the wide-ranging considerations necessary for successful selection, specification, installation, and use of ceilings, this SHTM should be made available to project teams, design teams and those responsible for construction, commissioning and maintenance of health buildings. It is mainly concerned with new building work, but much of the information it contains is equally applicable to renewal of ceilings in existing buildings.
