The disadvantages of this material include sensitivity to mechanical damage, as well as the release of toxic gas when exposed to high temperatures.
Texture of seamless ceilings
Regardless of the type, foam, fabric, tile, slatted or fabric stretch ceilings can be matte and glossy.
Seamless glossy stretch ceilings reflect all objects like a mirror, so this coating is very popular with apartment owners with low ceilings. Mirror ceilings visually increase the height of the ceilings and make the room more spacious. At the same time, glossy seamless ceilings effectively look both in classic white color and in bright design. The latter option is recommended for the design of the room in a modern style.
