Ceiling Tiles

Ceiling tiles in Canada are commonly used for various applications:

First application is decorative and is usually installed in residential and commercial buildings. Decorative ceiling tiles are usually made of plastic material, plaster or metal and is installed using lay-in, gluing and/or nailing of the tiles to the ceiling.

Second application is industrial and it usually requires the tiles to be noise absorbing and sound proofing, therefore, it is made of more solid materials such as metal, rock wool, etc. The ceiling tiles could be applied separately or a part of a tailored ceiling system.

In food plants, ceiling systems are carefully planned to prevent contamination and adulation of food products. The ceiling tiles must be carefully selected and the ceiling system must be carefully engineered to not spoil the food products physically, chemically or microbiologically, to make them unsafe for human consumption.

If you are a food vendor looking to build a plant or a food storing facility, or already have such facility we advise you to make sure your ceiling system (as well as wall and flooring system) complies with the requirements for safe uncontaminated food handling.

(NC)—As the warmer weather sets in, so does our appetite for lighter fare and an increased energy level. Spring clean your health regime by treating yourself to wholesome lunch options and an active new lifestyle to get yourself back on track for the summer months. Here are three ways to get you started.
1. Re–introduce activity: After months of using the “it's cold out” excuse for not getting your 45 minutes a day, it is time to get back into the swing of things. Using your lunch break in the middle of the day to enjoy a brisk walk is a great way to get moving again.


Enhance your health with freshly grown herbs
(NC)—Did you know that one tablespoon of fresh oregano contains the same amount of antioxidants as a medium sized apple?
We know that antioxidants in our bodies are essential to good health. Many fruits and vegetables provide them, but research shows that fresh oregano is at the top of the list in antioxidant activity. Adding fresh herbs to your diet is an easy way to include significant amounts of antioxidants and increase the health value of a meal without adding extra calories–and you can easily grow them right in your own backyard garden or in containers on your patio or balcony.


Pare down your portions to trim down your waistline
(NC)—We live in a world where “mega, super and grande” sizes have become the norm. Many people use these plus–sized portions to validate their binge–eating habits. Some use over–consumption as a way to comfort emotional distress, others take the “see food” diet approach and always finish what's on their plate.
Here are a few tips I like to follow to ensure I am eating the proper portions.
