Suspended Ceiling C1-1 with Rotary Hanger

In this article we explain how to install a suspended ceiling on one level Technogips Pro C1-1 with Rotary Hanger.

Products and tools you need:

  • Premium Profile CD 60
  • Wire with Eye or Hook
  • Rotary Hanger, Moon Type
  • Crosswise-One-Side Connector
  • Tape Measure
  • Level 
  • Choke Line Marker
  • Tin Snips
  • Drywall Screwdriver

 Here are the steps we followed:

With the help of a tape measure, pencil and choke line marker we mark the axes on which the Rotary hangers will be mounted and subsequently the Premium profiles CD 60. We mark the first axis at a distance of max. 300 mm from the enclosing wall and each subsequent one must be 500 mm in transverse mounting or 400 mm in longitudinal mounting of the panels.

We proceed to the installation of the Wire with Eye to the main ceiling with a suitable fastener according to the type of the supporting ceiling. In a case of a solid reinforced concrete slab ceiling, we recommend the use of the Ceiling Anchor 6x40/60 only. When installing the suspension structure, the use of a dowel or other cross element with a nylon dowel is not allowed, as this type of fasteners are not resistant to tension in case of fire.

The distance between the Wire with Eye should be in accordance with the weight of the future gypsum plasterboard cladding.The carrying capacity of the combination Wire with Eye and Rotary hanger is 0.25 kN or 25 kg/m2. More information on sizing and selecting a suitable hanger can be found on page 77 of the Technogips Pro Systems Catalog.

We continue with the sizing of the main Premium profiles CD 60. The total length of the profile must be 10 mm smaller than the size of the room in order to be able to linearly expand the profile and consequently to avoid cracking of the joints between the plasterboards. 

The installation of the Premium profiles CD 60 to the Rotary hanger is done after precise leveling in relation to the already determined level of the suspended ceiling.

To stabilize the suspended structure and strengthen the non-factory joint between the plasterboards, we recommend the installation of transverse mounting Premium profiles CD 60. They are dimensioned according to the distance between the main profiles and are mounted to them via a CD connection on one level. As many cross-connections are made as there are non-factory joints on the plasterboards.

With this step, the installation of the suspended ceiling structure on one level Technogips Pro C1-1 with Rotary hanger is completed.
