PRODUCT FEATURES

  • INTRODUCTION TO OUR DUO® CEILING SYSTEM

    The Rondo DUO® Exposed Ceiling Grid System is a practical, convenient ceiling system. It has a complete range of main sections and complementary parts so that you can adapt the modules to suit your design needs.

    The smart design of Rondo DUO® Exposed Ceiling Grid System components means they are easily assembled on site, and can be adjusted or replaced without damage. All components have been designed and tested by Rondo Engineers to meet the requirements of suspended ceiling codes in both Australia and New Zealand.

    Rondo DUO® Exposed Ceiling Grid System consists of 24mm wide steel Main and Cross-tees, to support acoustic and plasterboard ceiling tiles in non-fire rated environments. The Cross Tees will positively lock into each other through the Main Tee with a gentle push, creating a sturdy structure.

    Our DUO® Seismic Ceiling System uses DUO1 Main Tee and Cross Tees as the main grid components, along with complementary accessories.

    The Rondo DUO® Seismic Ceiling System has the options of perimeter fixing or plenum bracing.

    For large open areas, the system is restrained by evenly distributed braces in the plenum space, with sliding connections to all perimeters. Perimeter restraint is achieved using our new DUO® Seismic Sliding Clip which allows the main grid components to either be rigidly connected or slide within the clip.
