Pressed Steel Ceilings

The only 100% South African manufactured pressed steel ceilings.

About Us

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:

Truth Coffee, Cape Town
Cotton-On Clothing Shop –  Several outlets
Doppio Zero – From Sandton to Egypt
Mike’s Kitchen – Several Restaurants
Le Patea Choux, Cullinan
Lizette’s Restaurant, Hermanus
Vovo – Telo: Steenberg Village, Norwood, Waterfall Mall, Kloof Street, Ballito, Village View & Gray Stone Drive and more.

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

Our Work

We used ceiling panels that had been removed from old homes in South Africa, to make new dies for pressing purposes. Our 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.

We do not manufacture or sell polystyrene or fibre glass.
