ROPE CEILING DESIGN
We had never before made the rope’s ceiling, as there are not many people either but we took it as a challenge. The task proved to be much more challenging than we expected. First, the order began long waiting, rope ordering was slow but the expectation was awarded with a very good quality rope. Have to every time ask your self where we really have anyway hurry… Maybe that feeling only come need to “wait” because customer asking all the time when ropes coming. Some expats in Thailand really not understand what country they stay and in addition, we live on the island of Koh Samui which make few days extra for deliveries.
How the ceiling process going and which material we use
Rope ceiling design is made of 24 millimeter ropes. The rope has many different layers of natural rope and various fiber materials. Ropes are made for heavy use so perhaps the thickness chosen by the customer was a very heavy rope. We recommended for your rope ceiling design under 20mm rope. Its not so rigid and stay straight better.
Ceiling coil was made from the most durable and best available wood. We have first plan use iron coil but then customer want rusted metal sheet with holes for ropes, so we need use wood because all come rust in future if some place is rust. Also why so heavy coil, rope design is so heavy 250 KG. This was fixed directly to the concrete ceiling. We used roof anchors but a little worried about this structure because the customer’s concrete is very porous. The customer itself assured that the roof is top 1 quality.
Full rope ceiling design size is 280 cm x 160 cm. We split the metal plates to the minimum size as possible, for that reason we want keep safety first and because customer want rust iron sheet. We proposed rusty paint for safety but customer not accept our idea so we need rusted real iron. It will not stay in the ceiling of eternity. Everyone know rust not stop when its start.
Structure size and weight can easy modified. In this case we use 7cm distance between holes which is too near i think and ropes look easy too mess. Of course, this can be chosen as well the distance between holes and try found best results which are possible. Experience makes the expert so next project is much more easy if still found people who want rope ceilings.
