The New and Improved Armstrong Seismic Design Guide

The new Armstrong Seismic Design Guide offers comprehensive, reliable and code compliant design solutions for suspended grid ceiling installation in New Zealand

By imputing various design factors, such as weight and height of the ceiling, dimension of the ceiling space and location of the building, users can quickly evaluate the appropriate bracing options required, and provide accurate costing associated with installing a seismically compliant ceiling.

Armstrong developed a range of proprietary seismic clips, part of the Armstrong Rx seismic range.  These clips are designed to introduce up to 19mm of movement each way within the grid module, as well as at perimeter connections, helping dissipate the seismic forces and preventing major failures.  What’s more, the clips are designed to be fully integrated within the grid system, so there is no aesthetic penalty when creating a seismically compliant Armstrong ceiling.

The latest version of the guide now offers design scope for racking ceilings; very popular in educations projects, where depending on the slope angle of the ceiling, the guide is able to assess bracing requirements and fixing methods.

The new design guide also offers various back bracing options depending on the project requirements, the plenum dimensions, and space available, making it an extremely flexible tool even for the most complex commercial project.
