    Suitability of ceiling for a ceiling rose


    How do I know that my ceiling will support a ceiling rose correctly?

    "Ceiling Roses should come with wooden lath in them designed to be screwed trough fixing them into timber joists. Use adhesive and appropriate screws to fix them to the ceiling. If your ceiling is plasterboard or lath and plaster (providing the lath and plaster is solid without heavy cracking or movement) then there should be adequate strapping to fix to. If your ceiling is concrete or has no timber framing then I wouldn't advise fitting a rose using Purley adhesive. Unless it's a very small lightweight rose. Plaster casted roses can be quite heavy depending on size. Always make sure the rose is properly dried out before fitting. Hope this helps."
