  • The suspension bracket needs to be fixed to the Tie-Beam by either nail or screw at a maximum of 200mm centres and located into the steel brandering. 
  • The gypsum ceiling board should be fixed parallel to the roof trusses, with drywall screws spaced at maximum 150mm centres.
  • Steel brandering  can be used with 6.4mm gypsum ceiling boards and H-joint strips or it can be used with 9mm gypsum ceiling boards & Rhinolite ( Flush Plastered ceiling system).
