Cladding of a Suspended Ceiling C2-2

Today we give more information on how to install a two-layer cladding with plasterboard on a suspended ceiling structure on two levels Technogips Pro C2-2.

Products and tools you need:

Here are the steps we followed:

The installation of the first layer starts from the middle of the ceiling, when the surrounding walls are uneven. With straight walls, installation can starts from one corner of the room and continues to the center.

For easier and faster installation of the boards, we outline the position of the profiles on the board itself. In our case, the main Premium profiles CD 60 are mounted at a distance of 500 mm for transverse mounting of the boards and accordingly we mark the position of each profile on the board to know the exact position of the profile.

The next step is to fix the Standard plasterboard type A 12.5 mm to the suspended ceiling grid by Drywall screw TN 3.5x25 and the distance between the individual screws must be max. 400 mm. It is necessary to provide for the divergence of the transverse joints between two adjacent boards at a distance of at least 500 mm. When installing the end plasterboards to the enclosing profiles, a joint of 2 mm must be provided to absorb the thermal expansions of the building.

It is also necessary to fill the longitudinal joints with FUGA gypsum joint filler to level Q1. The steps for working with the product can be found here.

Then proceed to the installation of the second layer of wall cladding. To fix the boards to the metal structure we use Drywall screw TN 3.5x35, and the distance between the individual screws must be max. 200 mm. It is necessary to provide for a discrepancy of the longitudinal joints between two adjacent panels at a distance of at least 500 mm. Also discrepancy between the joints of the 1st and 2nd layer by 600 mm, which is half a board. When installing the end plasterboards to the enclosing profiles, a joint of 2 mm must be provided to absorb the thermal expansions of the building.
To finish the ceiling surface it is necessary to finish the joints to level Q2, which includes filling with FUGA joint filler and reinforcement with Paper joint tape. Don't forget to fill the screw heads as well.

This is the final step in the installation and completion of the Technogips Pro C2-2 suspended ceiling.
