Use Lattice for your Basement Ceiling

The suspended lattice panels beneath your existing ceiling can make a room feel cozy and warm. Not to mention the lattice can help hide stains and cracks you may have on the ceiling. Or the wires, pipes, and duct work that runs across the top of your unfinished ceiling in the basement.

Saftey Ratings for Vinyl Lattice

Something to consider if you choose to add lattice to an indoor design is the fire rating. Here are the Fire ratings the DuraShell® vinyl lattice meets and exceeds.

Surface Burning ASTM E84-95:
Rate of Burning ASTM D 635-91:
Ignition Properties of Plastic ASTM D1929-91a:
Smoke density of PVC lattice ASTM D2843:

With the peace of mind given from the fire rating test results, you can rest assured that our lattice is just as safe to use indoors as any of your other building materials.

Now that you’ve thought about lattice for your ceiling, consider the other interior areas of your home as well. Think about how the lattice can make that one plain wall pop, or how it can be used for card displays, head boards or in your craft area. The possibilities are endless.

You can see the full ASTM rating information on the “Test Results” page of our website. Yes, we really did list our ratings, doesn’t everyone?

Unique Ways to use Lattice

As a lattice manufacturer, Permalatt Products, Inc. has sold lattice for all of the typical uses … fencing, gazebos, pergolas, deck skirting and even privacy screens. These are the most common projects we see where we see our lattice used. With that being said, we’ve also experienced projects that are not so typical.

Let’s take a moment and think outside the box. Lattice can have a square or diagonal opening design. With those choices in mind, you can create an unlimited look for any type of project. From the interior to the exterior of you home, office, or business, lattice can become multifunctional.

Unique lattice uses in the home

Do you have the typical fluorescent lighting with the standard plastic cover? Would you rather have a unique look? Why not secure a piece of lattice to the lighting frame instead? The lattice can allow more light to flow through than the plastic sheet. Simply screw the custom cut lattice sheet to the recessed frame. This will allow you access to the bulbs as well as create a nice look in the room.

You can even use a lattice sheet over a screen door. This will protect the screen from your pet’s claws without restricting air flow.

Want to update your kitchen cupboards? You can remove the center panel of the door and add a piece of lattice. You can do this to every door or just a few to get the look you want.

Unique lattice uses outside the home

Now if you’re the crafty type, you can remove the old screen from a door and add a piece of lattice. This gives you a decorative piece you can set outside for your flowers or vines to latch on to.

Unique Ways to use Lattice

Do you have space on the patio you want to add a little pizazz to? Build a wall table with lattice and molding to use for your potted plants and flowers. Using a larger lattice sheet behind the table gives the area a little more depth as well.

These are just a few of the unique uses we have encountered with some of our clients. The uses of lattice can be limitless. If you can imagine it, you can create it!
