Suspended Ceiling C2-1 with Nonius Hanger

In this article we explain how to install a suspended ceiling on one level Technogips Pro C2-1 with Nonius hanger.

Products and tools you need:

  • Nonius Hanger, Upper Part
  • Nonius Hanger, Bottom Part
  • Bracket for Nonius Hanger
  • Premium Profile CD 60
  • 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.

We proceed to the installation of the Nonius hanger, upper part to the main ceiling with 2 suitable fasteners according to the type of the supporting ceiling. With a solid reinforced concrete slab ceiling, we recommend the use of the Ceiling Anchor 6x40/60 only. When installing the suspension structure on suspended ceilings, the use of a nail plug or other fastener 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 Nonius hanger, upper part should be in accordance with the weight of the future gypsum plasterboard cladding. The carrying capacity of the combination Nonius hanger, upper part, lower part and bracket is 0.40kN or 40 kg/m2. More information on sizing and choosing a suitable hanger can be found on page 80 of Catalog Systems Technogips Pro.

We continue with the sizing of the main Premium CD 60 profiles. The total length of the profile must be 10 mm less than the size of the room in order to allow for linear expansion of the profile and, accordingly, to avoid cracking joints between drywall boards. 

The installation of the main Premium profiles CD 60 to the Nonius hanger is done after precise leveling according to the already defined level of the suspended ceiling and fixing the two parts of the Nonius hanger with a clamp. 

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 Nonius Hanger.
