Suspended Ceiling C2-1 with Rotary Hanger

In this article we explain how to install a suspended ceiling on two levels Technogips Pro C2-1 with Rotary Hanger.

Products and tools you need:

  • Premium Profile CD 60
  • Rotary hanger, Moon type
  • Wire with eye
  • CD Anchor Bracket
  • CD Cross Connector
  • CD Connector
  • Tape Measure
  • Level 
  • Choke Line Marker
  • Tin Snips
  • Drywall Screwdriver

Here are the steps we followed:

It is necessary to determine in advance the level of the finished suspended ceiling and install the peripheral UD profiles. See more about the steps in this blog article.

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 boards. More information on sizing can be found on page 80 in the Technogips Pro System Catalog.

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 gypsum boards. If it is necessary to extend the main Premium profiles CD 60, it is necessary to use a CD connector.

The installation of the main Premium profiles CD 60 to the Rotary Hanger, moon Type takes place after precise leveling in relation to the already determined level of the suspended ceiling.

Then we proceed to the installation of the mounting profiles in the transverse direction to the main CD profiles. The cross-connection between the two profiles is made by using a CD cross connector or CD Anchor Bracket.

The distance between the mounting profiles must be 500 mm.

This step completes the installation of the two-level suspended ceiling structure Technogips Pro C2-1 with Roraty Hanger.
