Good morning.

We need to install false ceilings in a 2 beds flat ground floor with concrete ceiling and above that is first floor flat.

We are fitting wooden frame onto batten fitted to wall.

The question is, do we fit xtratherm sheet 25mm thick onto concrete ceiling or get plasterboard with xtratherm on it and fit to wooden frame?

Please can anyone advise?

Many thanks

Are you doing this to reduce noise, or for thermal insulation purposes?
No idea, what I've been told it to stop condensation occur in the void, by a carpenter, I'm jus there to help out.

I dont follow. Why are you insulating between two warm spaces?

What problem are you trying to solve.... Is it just that the ceiling is too high and you don't like the look of it or is there an existing condensation problem on the concrete?
