1

Ceiling marking

The level (horizontal) at which the suspended ceiling will be located is determined and a wall L-shaped profile is marked. The distance from the suspended ceiling to the main one should be at least 120 mm.

2

Installation of a wall L-shaped profile

The wall L-shaped profile (corner) is installed using dowels. The distance between the dowels should be 300 – 500 mm.

3

Marking and installation of the hooks for hanging the T-profiles with a length of 3600 mm

They are attached to the main ceiling using anchor dowels with a pitch of 800 – 1200 mm. The hooks closest to the wall must be fixed at a distance of no more than 600 mm from it. It is necessary to use additional suspensions for the lighting fixtures (from 1 to 4 depending on their size and weight). The exception is KRAFT LED lamps - they do not require additional ones.

4

Installation and alignment of the main T-profiles 3600 mm

At least three suspension hooks are used for each main T-profile.

5

Installation of transverse and longitudinal T-shaped profiles

We install transverse T-shaped profiles (1200 mm) in the holes of the main and longitudinal T-shaped profiles (600 mm) in the holes of the cross.

6

Installation of the suspended ceiling panel in the finished frame

The installation of the panel on the suspended ceiling must be carried out with clean gloves so as not to spoil their appearance. The installation of lighting fixtures, ventilation grills and other components is carried out in parallel.
