Stretch Ceiling Systems are installed in this fashion: the profile is screw attached to the wall, soffit, frame, ceiling, or some other form of rigid structure.
The membrane is factory shrunk approximately 6% smaller than the survey measurements, and is shipped to the site normally within 14 days. On site, the material is warmed up to 104-115° F, stretched, and using special spatula tools clipped into the profile system. As a final step, openings for recessed lighting, vents, sprinklers, etc. are cut and applied reinforcing rings, allowing final fixtures to be installed.
A team of two professionals can complete 500-1000 square feet of a flat ceiling installation per day, as long as all required installation conditions have been met. All the hard work is always done behind the scenes in our office and fabrication facility. The actual ceiling installation is fast, clean, and efficient.
Required tools to start the installation are as follows:
- Short, Long & Angled Spatula
- Clamps (4+)
- Propane gas forced air heater
- Reinforcement rings (to create perforations for sprinklers, vents, can lights and etc.)
- LOCTITE Super Glue (for installation of reinforcement rings)
