Ceiling structure of our steel frame houses

CEILING SYSTEMS by Pelasgos Homes

For our ceilings we are using the Ceiling system of KNAUF.

The Suspended Ceiling System with metal grid consists of lower/furring and upper CD channels. Main channels are attached to the ceiling slab with hooked wires and rapid hangers or with Knauf Nonius Suspension System. Upper/main CD channels are attached to lower/furring channels with Knauf Clips in the Knauf D112 System. The Knauf UD channel is installed flush on the existing bearing system of the building with anchoring screws. This facilitates the proper alignments and installation of all base and bearing studs and channels. Knauf Gypsum Boards are installed on metal grids with screw attachment, starting at one end and gradually advancing towards the other. Fiberglass mesh is applied on the gypsum board joints that are then filled in with Uniflott by Knauf.
