Stylish and innovative, 512 CIV staves can overcome the limits of traditional self-supporting staves, realizing false ceilings where the particular width of the base is highlighed.
Not bound to the standard sizes, 512 CIV staves can be manufactured in any width from a minimum size of 400 mm to a maximum of 600 and are self-supporting up to 3.5 m. This system allows to construct corridor ceilings with no gaps, small dimensions rooms and galleries that stand out for their spacious and linear design.
The false ceiling made of CIV 512 staves provides an easy access to the interspace and can become acoustic by installing on the back of the perforated staves a mat of fiberglass or rock wool packed in heat-sealed polyethylene containers.
