CLIPS TO HELP CEILING BATTENS GET THE JOB DONE

To accommodate the use of timber “I” beams, the 314 Direct Fixing Clip has been designed with two extra nail or screw slots placed lower down on the clip, with an additional temporary tab to assist installation.

The 390 Swivel Clip is a convenient solution for installing Rondo 301 Ceiling Batten in areas where the set out requires a change of roof truss direction. With the ability to rotate 360°, the Rondo 390 Swivel Clip saves time on site by allowing Contractors to easily turn the ceiling batten on an angle that suits the change in roof truss direction.

Both the 314 Direct Fixing Clip and 390 Swivel Clip incorporate a temporary holding tab that allows the clip to be tapped into the timber truss when at the required level. As the tab holds the clip in place, both of the installers’ hands are free for putting two permanent fixings through the clip and into the timber truss – ensuring installation is quick and easy.

HELPFUL TIPS

Green timber should not come into contact with galvanised steel due to certain acidic substances in the timber which have a corrosive effect on the metallic coating. Some preservative treatments for wood can also have an adverse effect on metallic coated steel which it gets in contact with.
