Our grids are generally made up of Connect Main runner and Connect Cross tee, which are roll-formed with a body of galvanized steel and also capped with galvanized steel. Every single component has a well-adjusted bearing capacity so that the system as a whole meets the most stringent demands.
Connect Main runner
The rigid Connect Main runner has extra torsional strength and stability for a safe installation and excellent load bearing capacity. It has a unique narrow V-shaped spine which facilitates mounting of tiles etc. and allows quick installation of lay-in tiles, resulting in less damage. The design improves the performance and safety of the clips, hanger mountings, direct mountings etc.
Connect Cross tee
Connect Cross tee has a patented, easy to use coupling. An audible click signals when the Cross tee is in correct position in the Connect Main runner. The coupling contributes to a safe installation which is easy to demount. There is a long support lip in the coupling for quick fixing, which gives a firm, safe and non-twisted coupling.
Capping widths and colours
Connect grids are available in three different widths; 15 mm, 24 mm and 35 mm, named T15, T24 and T35. You can choose between three standard colours; white, grey and black.
