What is a T-grid system for suspended ceiling?

The T-grid system is the load-bearing structure of the suspended ceiling. The design is easily assembled by hand and fixed to the ceiling on special suspensions. After that, either the tiles (plasterboard, mineral, metal, glass, mirror, wood, etc.) are inserted into the assembled cells of the profile, or metal cassettes of the open cell ceiling grilyato GLK (for details on metal cassettes grilyato GLK >>>).

KRAFT Deckensysteme produces four models of T-profiles: FORTIS, NOVA, HD and RH100. The width of the visible part of the profile can be 24 mm (standard) or 15 mm (thin). The models differ in performance and cost. All models are fully compatible with each other.

The structure consists of the following elements:

1. Wall profile. For standard tiles, the L-profile (19x24 mm) is used. For tiles with an edge (protruding beyond the profile) - W-profile (20x15x8x15 mm). The wall profile is fixed along the perimeter of the wall.

2. Suspension. Suspensions are height adjustable.
3. The main bearing guide 3600 mm (height 38 mm). This guide creates the main frame and carries the main load.
4. Cross guide 1200 mm (height 25 mm). Auxiliary guides.
5. Cross guide 600 mm (height 25 mm). Auxiliary guides.

The structure, assembled from T-profiles, is suitable for mounting of ceiling tiles of standard dimensions 600х600 mm, 600х1200 mm and other sizes for cells of multiple 600 mm.

All production profiles of KRAFT Deckensysteme have additional stiffeners, which provide additional strength under loads. Also, all main guides are equipped with a fire compensator. A special cut compensates for the temperature expansion of the metal during a fire and prevents the ceiling from collapsing.

Standard colors and sizes

Basic colors of the front part: RAL 9003 (white), RAL 9005 (black), RAL 9006 (metallic gray), RAL 7024 (graphite gray), RAL 8017 (chocolate). Can be painted in any color according to the RAL scale.

The original design of the KRAFT profile lock allows you to separate profiles without breaking the lock. Therefore, if necessary, the design can be disassembled and reassembled.
