Pressed Steel Ceilings – Gedrukte Staal Plafonne

Welcome to Pressed Steel Ceilings.

The only 100% South African manufactured pressed steel ceilings.

We are a family business that has been manufacturing  pressed steel ceilings in South Africa since 1994.  

Pressed steel ceilings are very sought-after and can be found in the following locations, to name but a few:

We initially started out by importing pressed steel panels from the USA in 1992, but by 1994 we decided to start with local production.

We used ceiling panels that had been removed from old homes in South Africa, to make new dies for pressing purposesOur product is made out of tin plated steel  which is extremely durable and long lasting.

The new dies were then crafted and polished by hand to improve the detail and modify the designs, until we were 100% satisfied with them.

The process of manufacturing these dies is very time consuming, but the added effort shows in the final product.

These dies are used to press the patterns into the tin plated steel sheets using the maximum pressure that the material can withstand without cracking to ensure the highest possible levels of detail in the paterns.

The panels add massive personality to any home or project and can be used as ceiling- or wall panels.  You can then paint the panels any colour and even put detail in by hand in a different colour on the elevated patterns. If you prefer the ‘silver’ colour, you can paint the panels with ‘clear’  enamel or ‘transparent’ varnish.  

Besides the durability and impeccable quality of our products, they also have the added benefit of being highly fire resistant. There are many examples of old homes where fires were contained to one room because the pressed steel ceilings stopped the fire from spreading to the roof.


If you want hand crafted pressed ceilings to make your home or next project unforgettable, please contact us.

We do not manufacture or sell polystyrene or fibre glass.

Four corner pieces have been used to create a single image, with pressed metal cornicing at the top. The counter is finished with LED lighting under the countertop to create a wash of light over the reflective panels.

A modern look with unpainted Ceiling tiles

unpainted ceiling tiles

When our first client asked us whether they could install the ceiling tiles unpainted, we were unsure. Since the 1800's pressed ceilings had always been painted, and for that matter repainted, every few years. It's not uncommon to see an old house where the ceiling has been painted over so many times the patterns on the pressed ceiling are barely visible.

Give your living room personality with tin ceilings

Tin ceilings

Many of our clients are concerned that tin ceilings will make their homes look "old" or give it too much of a rustic feel. In this example one of our clients used the ceiling tiles with their historic white paint and using the decor, created a very warm and homely feel. These pannels give a new dimention to any room. Just imagine this same room with plain white ceilings. It would simply not be the same.

Antique ceiling tiles as wall decor is often not something that everyone thinks about.  

The above installation can be found in the Nelson Mandela square in Sandton City.  

Vintage ceiling tiles








If the vintage ceiling tile is preferred to be unpainted or in 'natural' colour, as it is sometimes called, it is still necessary to protect it with a clear varnish or similar paint/cover to prevent it from tarnishing.
