Q: Are hold down clips necessary when following a UL design?

A: Amstrong Fire Guard ceilings do not require use of "hold down" clips in a UL design. Hold down clips are only required for UL assemblies in which the ceiling panels weigh less than 1.0 lb./square foot. All Armstrong Fire Guard ceilings weigh 1.0 lb./sq.ft. or more and do not require hold down clips.
