Ease of installation and dismantling falce ceiling rating

Recommendations for choosing a false ceiling for ease of installation and dismantling

What type of suspended ceiling is the fastest to mount? What is the easiest ceiling to dismantle to get to the communications? What ceiling can be dismantled, and then re-mounted without affecting the appearance? The answers to these and other questions are below.

Why do we need such a rating? If most of the ceiling-mounted communications pass only over several sections of the room, then it makes sense to consider the option with a combined suspended ceiling. Firstly, any combined ceiling is already a design decision. Therefore, it will look more impressive than standard systems. Secondly, in the part of the room that requires constant access, you can install a ceiling that is easily disassembled and assembled. And you will have easy access to communications. However, it should be noted that such decisions are thought out even at the stage of design and development.

So, in order.


The initial installation phase is the same for all types of suspended ceilings. The first stage is marking the level of the suspended ceiling, installing the wall L-profile, marking and mounting the suspensions. And then some differences begin.

T-profile ceiling with slabs

A distinctive feature of this category is the supporting system of T-profiles into which the plates are inserted. Plates can be of different types: mineral, acoustic, metal, expanded metal, mirror and others.

Installation scheme for KRAFT suspended ceiling on T-profiles

After the suspensions are installed, the T-profiles are mounted. Further, ceiling plates are embedded in the construction of T-shaped profiles. Standard plate sizes: 600x600 mm or 1200x600 mm.

Ceiling on T-profile with GLK cassettes

Grilyato GLK is a special cassette (modular) grilyato system for use in T-profile ceilings. Just as in the ceiling with plates, T-profiles are mounted on suspensions already installed. Then you need to assemble the GLK grilyato cassettes and then insert them into the structure of the T-profiles.

Classic or pyramidal grilyato

At the second stage, the main grilyato guides 2400 mm and 600 mm are mounted on the installed suspensions. Next, classic or pyramidal grilyato cassettes are assembled and installed in the supporting structure from the main guides. At the same time, each guide cassette has its own locks, which should fall into the corresponding grooves on the main guides. The smaller the size of the grilyato cell, the more guides in the cartridge and the more locks you need to snap into place.

Slatted ceilings: cube and plate rail

In the rack ceilings, a suspension beam is mounted on the suspensions. Then the rail is mounted - it is necessary to press it with a little effort to the traverse lock until it clicks. The number of locks on one rail depends on its length - on average, the distance between the traverses is 1000 mm.

Dismantling of individual sections of the ceiling

Dismantling of individual sections of the false ceiling is required to service or replace communications located behind the ceiling.

The simplest ceiling construction for dismantling are T-profile ceilings. In such a ceiling, it is enough to remove the GLK grillato from the supporting structure of the plate or cassette and access to communications is open.

Dismantling the rack ceiling is also not a difficult operation. It is necessary to slightly expand the rail in the castle area and it can be easily removed.

The classic and pyramidal grilyato need to be dismantled very carefully, in order not to bend the profile locks. The greatest difficulty is the relatively large number of locks in the structure, so proceed with caution.
