Grids and Suspension

Metal grids are typically made of galvanized steel or aluminum.
Commonly used suspension systems include Lay-In and Clip-In systems.
The primary Lay-In system for ceiling grids is the DONN brand suspension system.
The Clip-In system features panels that clip into suspension systems by connectors, while in Lay-In grids, the tiles rest on the support structure of suspension system with the custom tile edge.
Steel grids provide higher strength and load-bearing capacity compared to aluminum, suitable for heavy-duty applications.
Lay-In grids are installed by placing the panels onto the grid structure, providing a versatile and accessible ceiling solution.
Clip-In systems are commonly used in areas where frequent access to the ceiling void is required, such as commercial buildings.
Metal suspension systems offer design flexibility, enabling creative ceiling configurations and aesthetic appeal.
