Systems / Edge details / Installation

Bandraster - A wider than normal (50-150mm) exposed grid system, mainly used with lay-in planks, that can be used to define the ceiling module in linear, square or rectangular layouts. Bandraster is also used to provide location for partition systems.

Board - A tile edge detail used with Prelude 24mm (or Bandraster) visible grid, resulting in a flat ceiling plane.

Clip-In - A metal tile edge detail that enables the tile to be clipped into concealed suspension bars with a resulting fully concealed grid appearance but still retaining individual tile demountability and easy access to the void.

Fastrak - A wider than normal exposed grid system, used with lay-in metal planks, that can be used to define the ceiling module in linear, square or rectangular layouts. Fastrak is also used to provide location for partition systems.

Hook-On - A metal tile edge detail that enables the tile to be hooked onto concealed suspension bars with a resulting fully concealed grid appearance but still retaining individual tile demountability and easy access to the void.

K2C2 - A tile edge detail, with kerfs along two opposing edges, that is used with a concealed 'Z' grid section to provide a fully concealed appearance. Demountability of individual tiles is restricted but all tiles can be removed sequentially.

Kerf - A groove in the edge of ceiling tile used to locate and provide support from a suspension section.

Main Runner - The main support element of an exposed tee ceiling suspension system which is hung from the structure.

MicroLook - A rebated tile edge detail used with Prelude 15mm wide visible grid, resulting in a revealed ceiling plane.

MicroLook BE - A rebated tile edge detail used with Silhouette 15mm wide visible grid, resulting in a flat ceiling plane, or with Prelude 15mm wide visible grid, resulting in a revealed ceiling plane.

Perimeter Trim - A right angle shaped exposed grid section, either simple or stepped (shadowline), that is installed around the ceiling perimeter to mask and support the cut edges of tiles and grid.

Primary Cross Tee - A grid element that is perpendicularly inserted into the main runner to space it and form different modules sizes.

SL2 - A tile or plank edge detail, with special 'shiplapped' kerfs along two opposing edges, that is used with a concealed 'T' or 'Z' grid section to provide a fully concealed appearance but still retaining individual tile demountability and easy access to the void.

Secondary Cross Tee - A grid element that is perpendicularly inserted into the primary cross tee to form different modules sizes.

Tegular - Rebated tile edge used with Prelude 24mm (or 24 & Bandraster) visible grid, resulting in a revealed ceiling plane.

Vector - A tile edge detail, with groves along two opposing edges, that is used with a Prelude 24mm (or 24 & Bandraster) visible grid to provide a 'semi-concealed' appearance but still retaining individual tile demountability and easy access to the void.
