DAMPA Clip In Tile (English) - Catalog - Page 6
Installation of DAMPA® Clip-In tile
The installation of DAMPA Clip-In tiles, with or without bevelled edge,
in a concealed suspension system creates a flat and uniform ceiling surface.
The tiles are secured to the carriers – without
the use of tools. If necessary, it is possible to
remove and reinstate individual tiles by means
of a simple dismantling tool.
The suspension system is not related to
specific modules and creative combinations are
possible using different tile sizes.
A primary grid system is recommended to
maintain maximum rigidity of the ceiling
construction. This will also minimise the number of hangers and provide for greater flexibility
Edge Trim No. 11 is used to secure cut aluminium perimeter tiles. Carrier Splice No. 4
is secured to the top flange of the lower
carrier. It also locates on the top flange of
the edge trim to maintain the
correct tile height.
It may be necessary to provide additional
support in close proximity to other integrated
components, e.g. lighting and ventilation, to
avoid excessive ceiling deflection.
Carrier Splice No. 4 is also used to
maintain the correct height of the primary
grid upper carriers.
Cut steel perimeter tiles are supported
using Edge Trim No. 36 and held in position with Wedge No. 4 as shown above.
Alternatively, Shadow Gap Edge Trim No. 6
- held in position with Wedge No. 5 - can
be used. Edge Trim No. 11 is used by
Adjustment Clip No. 4 can be secured to
the primary or secondary carrier.
The hanger is fastened to the soffit allowing
a pull-out force of at least 2.5 times the
After installation of the edge trims, the primary
grid upper carriers are installed and the lower
carriers are secured to the upper ones using
coupling clips. Perimeter cut tiles should be
larger than half a tile.
Coupling Clip No. 1 is used to connect the
primary and secondary grid carriers.
Carrier No. 10 is used as a perimeter detail
to support full tiles.
