Drywall Grid is a heavy-duty, double-web T-bar profile suspension system that is used in place of traditional framing or furring to install drywall ceilings, reducing installation time and saving labor and material costs. It features a 1-1/2-inch flange width that is knurled to make screw installation easier. Also, there is no capping on the grid; instead the web is rotary stitched to increase torsional strength and stability. Drywall Grid is fire-rated and offers solutions for framing both Type F and Type G light fixtures.
In addition to Drywall Grid, CertainTeed Ceilings is adding an enhanced Classic Hook Suspension System, which features a redesigned cross tee connection that makes it faster and easier to install. The company is also introducing a new 9/16-inch Elite Stab Heavy-Duty Grid System that has been approved for use in severe seismic areas. The new offerings join new SeismicSecure and FireSecure code-compliant grid systems, streamlining installation and ensuring compliance in various types of projects.
