Santa Luzia offers classic and ecological finishing for ceilings

Eco-friendly crowns can replace traditional plaster mouldings
Roteto Banner

When building or renovating, we dedicate a considerable amount of time to pay attention to the details of each environment, where colors, wall coverings and furniture must be in proper harmony. Although discreet at first glance, the ceiling finish is as important as the walls and floor in decoration, as its color, for instance, can change our perception of the space's spaciousness and illumination. The ceiling can be a 'wild card' for decor when used to complement or even reinforce the style chosen for the environment. Adopted for centuries to decorate interiors, the classic elements rescue the palatial elegance with hints of art deco and represent today the main influence in the decoration of the ceilings.

One of the most famous elements is the crown moulding, the 'uspide down wall baseboard'. Traditionally made of plaster, the mouldings require specialization in handling and applying the material, which is not always practical and clean. Santa Luzia offers a sustainable alternative by providing six ecological and ready to install crown models, following the design already offered on wall baseboards, chair rails/ trims and door casings.

Manufactured from the recycling of Styrofoam® residues, the mouldings are recyclable, resistant to pests such as termites and are immune to mold. The parts leave the factory painted with white acrylic solvent-based paint. If repainting is necessary, the mouldings are prepared to receive acrylic, polyurethane and synthetic solvent-based paint. Caution: do not sand the parts to the point of removing the factory paint, which could compromise the overcoat finish. See other images:

Pay attention to factory recommendations!

For the crown installation, we recommend using the following accessories:

  • Installation on masonry walls: It is recommended to use Santa Luzia Glue plus the Santa Luzia T Bracket. Note: for apartments that do not accept holes in the walls, we suggest using the Santa Luzia Double-Sided Tape instead of the Santa Luzia T Bracket.
  • Installation on other surfaces: It is recommended to use  Santa Luzia Super Adhesive plusSanta Luzia Double-Sided Tape. 

Important: To finalize the finishing on the seams, it is recommended to use Santa Luzia Premium Caulk in a color similar to the chosen finish.
