CeilingConnex Grid System
Layout Room Optimal layout will provide equal sized boarder tiles on opposite walls. You can either have a full tile centered about the room or a room centered on the grid.
Which option you choose depends on lighting locations, room dimensions to maximize border tile size or personal preference.
Hang Main Runners perpendicular to ceiling joists or if surface mounted perpendicular to the rooms longest dimension.
Tile Centered Layout
Measure and mark 11.5" in each direction from centerline, this will be the inside dimension of your first two rows of Main Runners. Measure and mark every 24" till you have laid out the room.
Grid Centered Layout
Center the first main runner on the center line of the room. Measure and mark every 24" till you have laid out the room.
Mark remaining measurements using a chalk line.
Fastening Main Runners can be done with either a 1" sheetrock screw or for quicker installation an air stapler is sufficient.
Do not over tighten screws / staples as it can deform the plastic.
