STEP 1: Preparation
Establish height of finished ceiling in accordance with architectural design and mechanical
STEP 2: Perimeter Channel
Fix Perimeter channel or angle in place around the wall edges with 8 gauge x 32mm screws at 600 centres. This will supply sufficient edge support to complement suspended components.
STEP 3: Rail Installation
Top Cross Rail support should be no closer than 200mm from walls.
STEP 4: Connector Clips
Top Cross Rail connector clips should be securely snap locked into position. Positive engagement is confirmed by definite clicking sound of the engagement points.
STEP 5: Batten Installation
28mm or 16mm ceiling battens are then located into locating lugs in the legs of the Top Cross Rail clips to allow seating into final location point. Top Cross Rails should be placed at 1200 centres or as per the centres specified in the loading charts.
STEP 6: Suspension Wires
Wires are set at 1200mm centres or as per the charts and wrapped around the Top Cross Rail one wrap and then twitched back on itself a minimum of 3 turns.
STEP 7: Top Cross Rail Jointers
Jointers are available in 400mm lengths. These are splayed over the butt joint to give cover of 200mm either side of the butt joint. Screw fixings must penetrate through the main body of the suspended Top Cross Rail and into the jointer 100mm either side of the butt joint using selftapping wafer button head screws. The Top Cross Rail must run continuously over at least three spans between wire suspension points.
STEP 8: Joining Battens
Snap in batten joiners are available for 16mm and 28mm battens 200mm long overlapping 100mm each way. These are fixed in place using two wafer tech button head screws within 100mm and no closer than 12mm to butt joint.
