"... I should start with a disclaimer that I do not consider myself extremely gifted in the home improvement department, but have become more adventurous over the years. I bought my house from the 1920’s about 10 years ago off my sister when she moved to NYC. My sister had a new roof put on, but there was water damage to the ceiling in the dining area. I had been looking into getting the ceiling repaired and started looking into installation of a tin ceiling (actually made of unfinished steel). I ended up looking at Shanker Industries website... It was very user friendly and they actually sent me samples the next day. With the help of some friends, we were able to put up the ceiling and put a fresh coat of paint in the dining area in under 2 weeks..."

Painting
Shanker Industries products are manufactured from 30 gauge (.010) tin-free steel, which is chromium treated for good paint retention. Although a primer is not required for most environments, we recommend its application prior to painting in places exposed to heat, humidity, condensation or other moisture where corrosion may be a concern. If painted properly using a high gloss or semi gloss oil based paint, or a clear gloss polyurethane to finish the product in its natural state, the panels can easily last a lifetime. Water based or latex paints cannot be used, as they will induce corrosion.

Prefinished Panels
Shanker Industries can have the panels painted prior to shipment at an additional charge (depending on quantity) on a special order basis. We work with a metal-powder coating paint line, which gives a tough resilient finish. This can hold labor costs down when the area to paint is rather large. In many cases, particularly small installations of 200 sq.ft. or less, on-site painting is usually more economical.

We also produce all ceiling panels in brass, copper, chrome, or prepainted white. These panels are shipped with a baked on clear enamel, as well as a PVC peel-off film, to protect the finish in transit and during installation.

Acoustics
Our ceiling panels are made of steel and do not absorb sound. We have found few complaints about noise levels, particularly if there is other sound absorbing material in the room such as carpeting, wall coverings or drapery. In fact, many restaurants, particularly those that cater to younger crowds actually prefer a higher noise level. However, where acoustics are important, all our patterns are available in perforated metal, where much of the sound can pass through the panel into the materials behind it.

Maintenance & Cleaning
When properly coated, no maintenance is required. We do recommend the use of semi-gloss finishes, as these can be cleaned easily with a mild soap and water.
