The channel and clip installation method allows for levelling of the ceiling framing, as well as independent movement of the ceiling.
Batten hangers should be fixed to the side of the truss or ceiling joist firstly by nailing or screwing through the central slot in the batten hanger.
Batten hangers can adjusted by string line or laser level until they are all level. Secondary nails or screws can be put through the batten hanger after levelling and the batten can be simply snapped into position.
Where the ceiling is to be constructed to the underside of a trafficable floor, it is recommended that this method should be used.
Noise Control Systems – where required, such as in situations where mid-floor levels form “inter-tenancy” barriers, specially designed noise control clips can be fitted.
