KEELGRID FRP Ceiling Grid Installation & Specifications

Installation

As the above photo shows, KEELGRID assembly is similar to most ceiling systems. It is easy to install because the parts are designed to clip together. Main runners are notched to receive the cross tee clip and provide proper spacing of cross tees when installing a standard 2' X 2' or 2' X 4' system. Main runners are pre-drilled on 1' centers for hanging wires. A step-by-step installation guide is shipped with each order to ensure proper installation.

Unique Triple Holding Power:

KEELGRID's unique design includes male-female ridges in the grids and clips. This gives a secure installation, making pop rivets necessary only for the more demanding applications.

Light Fixtures - Surface Mount/Drop-In:

An independant support clip is available for surface mounting. Drop-in fixtures with hinged doors should be compatible with KEELGRID's net opening of 22.75" X 46.87" or 22.75" X 22.75" for a 2X4 or 2X2 pattern respectively. Many brands of light can accommodate this requirement. A special cross tee is available that will increase the net opening between 2 cross tees to 23"
