Self-supporting Membrane Ceilings

These are normally non loadbearing and, depending on the type of construction, are used to provide protection from fire attack from below and/or above. Ceiling panels are fixed into a steel or timber framing system spanning and supported between two walls.

Self-supporting membrane ceilings should normally be tested or assessed in accordance with AS 1530: Part 4 to satisfy the failure criteria of integrity and insulation.

These ceiling systems allow for the protection to or from services contained within the ceiling void.
