For those who need a more direct approach, Rondo supplies a wide range of direct fixing clips that allows you to direct fix Furring Channels or Ceiling Battens to either concrete, steel or timber ceiling structures for suspension depths of up to 200mm.
If you need a greater suspension depth, you can install a Rondo Key-Lock® suspended ceiling system.
Direct fixing clips need to be fixed along the sections in accordance with the relevant maximum span tables and our Furring Channels should be spaced as per the building board manufacturers’ recommendations. There is also a range of ceiling batten systems which are suitable for truss spacings from 600mm to 1200mm and for use in cyclonic and high wind areas.
Rondo Ceiling Battens and accompanying clips have been load tested to ensure they meet all relevant standard requirements. Two of our most popular clips are the 314 Direct Fixing Clip and the 390 Batten Swivel Clip.
314 Direct Fixing Clip – to accommodate the increasing use of timber “I” beams, the 314 Clip has two extra nail or screw slots lower down on the clip, with an additional holding tab to assist installation. Cleverly, the temporary holding tab is tapped into the timber beam when the clip is at the right level freeing up both your hands to secure the clip.
390 Batten Swivel Clip – with the ability to rotate 360°, the swivel clip can easily turn the ceiling batten on an angle that suits the change in roof truss direction. It also incorporates the temporary holding tab for quick and easy installation.
