It's a track type grid system that is designed to carry a lay-in ceiling. Tile. A suspended ceiling is the most common and the fastest way to complete an unfinished area. Now there are a couple of reasons why you would want to install a suspended ceiling. To give your room a finished, look to reduce sound transfer from one room to another. Or stop sound from coming upstairs. If you decide to put your kid's playroom in the basement. To cover up those ugly pipes and duct-work that every basement has. Maybe just to increase the brightness of a room Now suspended, ceilings are usually built in either a 2x4 or a 2x2 pattern. And this pattern is what is called the grid. If you choose a 2x4 pattern, it tends to be more economical because there is less grid material. However, there are many more ceiling tile options. If you choose a 2x2 pattern.
The ceiling grid is then hung from wires. That is secured to your wood, joists or the solid structure from above, and those wires are spaced no further than 4'. Apart from each other. This grid then sits on an L, shaped molding called wall angle, which is fastened around the perimeter of the room. Wall. Angle. Is generally 1'' wide and comes in standard lengths of 12'. The frame members of the grid that carry the load of the ceiling are called main runners. These are also 12' long. Main runners are installed every 4' apart from one another and run the entire length of the room. Main runners come in 2 different sizes. You can purchase these in either the standard 1'' wide face or the fancier 9/16'' narrow, face. Mains are also available in many different colors and styles. You can also purchase them in the standard steel face or the aluminum face. If you intend on installing them in a wet location. Mains are also available in a fire, rated and non-fired rated materials. Determining the # of main runners for a particular job is quite easy. One main usually covers 50 square ft. of ceiling space. So, in a room that is 500 square ft 10 main runners are needed. Generally speaking, you would want to add 10 % for scrap, so in this case, we would purchase 11 mains. Now each main has slots cut into the frame that is every 6'' on center.
These slots are where the tees connect into. The tees for a drop ceiling are either 2 or 4 feet long. The 4 foot long tees are the pieces that connect the main runners together. They simply snap or hook into the slots that are on the main. If you have chosen a 2x2 layout, then 2-foot tees are installed into the center of the 4-foot tees to create the 2x2 pattern. Now one thing you can do if you've chosen a 2x4 pattern is you can change the look of the room by changing the pattern of the grid.? Some grid patterns are installed so that the tile is running the length of the room, giving the impression that the room is deep. Additionally, a character can be added to any room by building a pan ceiling and giving the room a feel. That would be more inviting than a normal ceiling. Finally, to complete your project ceiling, tiles are cut and installed into the grid to create a Dropped, ceiling. The benefit of ceiling tiles over a standard drywall ceiling is that they are removable and provide access to the pipes and ductwork above them. Ceiling. Tile panels come in all different styles and thickness to accommodate the look that you would like to achieve for your project.
