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.

Please check local building codes requirements for your space. The following link will direct you to additional information and support for Armstrong's Fire Resistant ceiling systems.
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.
