Calculation of the configuration and installation instructions for open cell ceilings grilyato

You can calculate the complete set of KRAFT grilyato suspended ceilings by yourself with the help of the tables below. The complete set and installation instructions for the classic and pyramidal grilyato are combined in one section - they are identical. The complete set and installation instructions for the GLK grilyato are in a separate section. The completeness of grilyato "blinds" should be calculated by a specialist, based on the dimensions of the cells. You can also contact our specialists, who will advise and carry out a detailed calculation of the configuration.

01

Marking of the ceiling
The level (horizontal) on which the suspended ceiling will be located is determined and the marking for the wall L-profile is made. The distance from the suspended ceiling to the main one should be at least 150 mm.
Image

02

Installation of wall L-profile
The wall L-profile (corner) is installed using dowels. The distance between the dowels is 300-500 mm.
Image

03

Marking and installation of suspensions for the main profile of 2400 mm
Suspensions are attached to the main ceiling using anchor dowels with a step of 800-1000 mm. The suspensions closest to the wall should be attached at a distance of no more than 600 mm from the wall.

Caution!
Installation can be done in different sequences - decide at your own discretion:
– First mount the frame (step 4) in the entire room, and then proceed to the installation of grilyato cassettes (step 5).
or:
– Assemble part of the frame (step 4) and immediately install grilyato cassettes on the assembled area (step 5). Then proceed to the installation of the next part of the frame, etc.

Installation instructions for cassette grilyato GLK 15/15

Installation of the open cell ceiling grilyato GLK is mounted on the frame with T-profiles KRAFT Fortis T-15. Grilyato cassettes GLK are inserted into the frame made of T-profiles instead of stele plates. In this section, we can only see the special features of the installation of grilyato GLK 15/15.

  1. Main T-profile 3600 mm long. 
  2. Transverse T-profile 1200 mm long. 
  3. Longitudinal T-profile 600 mm long. 
  4. Wall-mounted L-profile, 3000 mm long. 
  5. Suspension grilyato GLK. 
  6. Grilyato module (consists of upper and lower profiles 600 mm long).

Use special suspensions

To fasten the frame from the T-profile, use special hangers. Installation of suspensions should be carried out at the intersection of T-profiles so that suspensions do not interfere with the installation of GLK grilyato cassettes.

Check the locks of the upper and lower profiles

After assembling the cassette, it is necessary to check that the locks of the top and lower grilyato profiles are fully engaged. To do this, squeeze the bottom profile (“mother”) on both sides of the lock with a little effort. If the lock was not closed, then you will hear a characteristic click and the profile will fall into place. In a properly assembled GLK grilyato cassette there should be no visible gaps between the profiles.

Check the locks of framing profile

The next step is to check the correct fastening of the framing profile locks. If the lock is closed correctly, then the main profile should protrude 1.5-2 mm beyond the framing one. This gap is necessary to compensate for the thickness of the T-profile. The framing profile rests on the bearing T-profile and the grilyato plane is flush with the plane of the bearing T-profile.

Make sure the cassette is properly secured

The grilyato cassette should rest against the T-profile and stand on the "spacer" of the supporting structure. The cassette has a slight backlash, so after installation it is enough just to move it a little until the trotz profile hits the seats. A small gap between the cassette and the T-profile is permissible at the joints of the transverse T-profiles, since the 600 mm profiles have a stamped lock.

Check the correct position of the cassettes

To create a one-piece effect, all grilyato cassettes must be aligned towards the bottom grilyato profile (mama). All lower grilyato profiles should be directed parallel to the supporting T-profile
