- Using a laser, or
equivalent, determine ceiling level and secure perimeter edge trim
to the wall at 400mm maximum centers.
- Cut lengths of
suspension wire hangers to suit suspension depth, ensuring
sufficient length for fixing.
- Setting out from
the center of the room, secure hangers at 1000mm maximum centers to
the structural soffit using fixings approved by the architect and
determined by load and safety factor considerations. The first
hangers are to be no more than 300mm from the wall. Where possible,
not less than half tiles should be used at perimeters.
- To achieve a 600 x
600mm module, install main tees at 1200mm centers. Wire hangers to
have a minimum of 3 turns to form a tight coil.
- Interlock 1200mm
cross tees between main tees at 600mm centers and 600mm cross tees
centrally between them.
- Tiles can now be
offered into place.
- Cut perimeter
tiles must be retained using wedges spaced at 300mm maximum centers.
