Lautex panel ceilings in shipbuilding

Lautex panel ceilings are closed ceiling structures with the airspace above the suspended ceiling totally encapsulated. Ventilation is arranged through air conditioning panels or by sufficient perforation of the flange of the panel. Ceilings in fire resistance class C are made of aluminium or steel. Panel ceilings in the more demanding classes B-0 and B-15 are always made of steel and filled with fire-resistant wool. Panel ceilings can be used in all parts of the ship, but are most commonly used in cabins, cabin corridors, storage rooms, offices and as part of the ceilings in public spaces.
