How to Design and Build Feature Ceilings in a Retail Environment

The USG Drywall grid suspension system is expressly designed for screw-attaching sheet linings such as plasterboard, fibrous plaster and fibre cement.  It is a pre-engineered suspension system created to reduce the design and installation difficulties associated with conventional channel/top-hat systems and represents a major breakthrough in drywall and plasterboard ceiling construction.

The Drywall grid system allows the flexibility to make easy transitions with bulkheads, false soffits or raked flat ceilings — all of which are features commonly used in retail environments.  Also, transitions from drywall plasterboard to USG acoustical suspended ceilings are easily accomplished with the system’s accessories.

The pre-engineered components of the USG Drywall Grid Suspension System can be quickly connected to form attractive, rigid, plasterboard drywall ceilings.  The system eliminates the labour-intensive practice of attaching channels by using the same QRC clip technology as used with USG’s DONN Brand exposed grid systems.  In contrast to older channel and top-hat section systems, the USG main tees with pre-indexed cross-tee hole locations significantly reduce time spent measuring cross member locations. This feature also allows for the use of standard light and A/C fittings used with exposed grid systems.

The USG Drywall Suspension System is an ideal choice for designing and building bulkheads and false soffits, which can now be built for a lower cost than with metal stud construction.
