    Frequently asked questions

    There are many parts and pieces in a grid system. See the image below for the anatomy of a drop ceiling grid system.



    A. Main Beams carry the load of the grid system, typically 12’ or 6’.
    B. Cross Tees are the supporting grid pieces that attach perpendicular to the main beams, helping  create the 24” x 24” or 24” x 48” openings needed for your tiles.
    C. Wall Moldings are used as finishing trim to hang against the walls in the space.
    D. Ceiling Tiles are the tiles used to make up the drop ceiling.
    E. Hanger Wires attach to the ceiling joists and are how the main beams and cross tees hang.
    F. Plenum is the area or space in between the drop ceiling and the structure above, typically floor  joists or an old ceiling.

    Included in the grid system are main beams, wall moldings, cross tees, and hanger wires.
    • Main beams carry the load of the grid system
    • Wall moldings are used as a finishing trim to hang against the walls in the space
    • Cross tees are the supporting grid pieces that attach perpendicular to the main beams, helping create the 24” x 24” or 24” x 48” opening needed for your tiles. Alternate cross tee sizes are also available for less common tile sizes.
    • Hanger wires attach to the ceiling joists and are how the main beams and cross tees hang
    ML and XL describe how main beams and cross tees attach to one another. The ML is a hook grid system and the XL is a stab grid system. The XL is required for seismic and specialty ceiling applications but is also the most common connection type across the United States.
    The type of grid system needed is dependent on a few different things. First thing to consider is what size and type of tiles will be used within the space. Another thing to consider is the look you want. We have grid systems available in many styles and sizes. Additionally, you have unique circumstances to consider. We have grid systems for use in seismic areas, fire rated grids, as well as grids used for Clean Rooms. As always, reach out to one of our customer support experts or our installation services team for guidance on your specific circumstance.
    Installing a ceiling grid requires planning and skilled work. We have many resources available to walk you through the process. Check out this video and always make sure to follow the installation instructions [PDF] included in the system. If you aren’t ready to tackle the challenge, we have a full-service certified installation team ready to help with completing your project from start to finish.
    Yes, our ceiling grids can be cleaned. Our grid components are made from hot-dipped galvanized steel, with a corrosion-resistant zinc finish protecting it from rust. Refer to our cleaning guide [PDF] and disinfecting guide [PDF] for more info.
    A 3” drop from the face of the grid is the minimum clearance needed for a drop/suspended ceiling. It’s not only a matter of getting the boards in, but the installers need room to twist the hanger wires, etc. Fiberglass is, of course, easiest to work with in the minimum clearance situation. More clearance can be given whenever possible to make the installation easier.

    Fire ratings refer to flame spread and smoke development. Ratings indicate how rapidly flame spreads on one surface as compared to another. The flame spread rating is broken into three categories: Class A, Class B and Class C. Class A products have a flame-spread of 25 or less, and smoke developed of 50 or less. Class C products have a flame-spread of 76-200, and smoke developed of 0-450. Class A products are appropriate in the majority of commercial applications and Class C products are appropriate in most residential applications.

    Installer Confidence

    The EasyUp System is certainly easy to use and the max spacing of 24" between rails seems adequate for the weight since the installer must provide and install a clip every 5 inches / 1 clip for each plank. The clip tension "feels" about right and still allows clips to slide smoothly. The clip's tension on the rails is very consistent - better than Sigma 6000. However, the weakest point is the screw holding the rails to the framing. It is very easy to overdrive those No.6 x 1-5/8" drywall screws right thru the rails. I had to be very careful with my Ryobi 1/4" impact driver to stop before overdriving but flush enough to allow clips to slide past. My only suggestion would be to add an additional suggestion to preinstall 80% or 90% of the clips on the rails before installing the rails. This speeds up the install be at least 35%. My only criticism of this product is that the retainer face of the clip to the plank is not formed at a 90 degree and has caused me to have to hand bend many of them to allow ease of joining the next plank. My only concern with the sale is that we completed the 850 square feet and had 4.5 cases left over - all based on your Quote Software since we had no way to engineer the coverage on this job - our first with this product. That difference now has over $430.00 of product left over. We have requested credit via return to your warehouse with an offer to allow for a 20% restocking charge freight prepaid by our company. We await your management decision today. Best regards Larry White, Project Manager Overall, the finished appearance is consistent with only a simple joint pattern.

    You saved the day!

    I was very relieved to be able to buy the ceiling clips from you as no Lowe’s or Home Depot in the Colorado region had any. My ceiling was 85% done and they couldn’t provide any product. Thank goodness you still make them.

    Great delivery

    Product arrived promptly and before expected and everything came well packed and in great condition. Price was competitive with other businesses in this area. I would definitely do business with Kanopi again. I can’t tell you how happy I was with the service and delivery that I received.

    Great product and customer service!

    April was great to work with when FedEx lost the tracks. April had new tracks delivered quickly. The ceiling was very easy to install and looks great. I recommend Armstrong ceilings!

    Very easy to install. I still need to add ceiling molding. Wish that you had molding that you recommended as molding that worked with your planks.

    Ceiling planks

    I’m getting ready to order another room . Absolutely love the Woodhaven planks. I was able to raise my very low drop ceiling. Planks went right over the grid.
