Below is an overview of the ceiling system components
required to complete one of the described on-center ceiling
layouts.
Note: Not all of these components are required in every
on-center linear lighting layout illustrated below.
1. Grid adapters
2.Non-standard cross tees with special rout hole
spacing.
(NOTE: Cross tee length is dependent on the on center
space of the ceiling grid opening for lighting)
3.Non-standard length main beams.
(NOTE: Main beam length is dependent on the length
of the linear lighting)
4. Pre-engineered special length cross tees.
5. Lighting connector bracket
6. Standard 12' main beams
7. Standard 2' and 4' cross tees
8. Standard wall angle molding
9. STAC clips
10. Ceiling tiles (FastSize and Standard Sizes)

Pop Rivet
NOTE: Pop-rivets, screws and hardware required for
attaching to structure are purchased from other manufactures.
Most building codes require non-structural building
components to be restrained. Armstrong also recommends
restraint in accordance with local building code requirements.
Please consult with the building code professional having
jurisdiction over the project to determine appropriate restraint
requirements for this installation.
Study the layout of the ceiling and verify that all of the ceiling
gird components are available on site for the installation. Note
that some ceiling grid components may be unidirectional.
Contact your local Armstrong distributor to request
replacement, additional or missing ceiling grid components.
1. INST ALL AT ION M AI N B EA M S
1.1 Install standard 12' main beams at a predetermined on
center spacing as shown on the RCP (most likely an 8' or 10'
on center spacing, the on center spacing of the mainbeam will
be driven by the on-center layout of the lights).
1.3 If applicable connect these 12' main beams to other 12'
main beams located on 4' centers in non-linear lighting areas.
1.2 At this time, do NOT install the non-standard main beams,
grid adapters, or cross tees located adjacent to the lighting
fixture ceiling opening.

2.1 Install one pre-engineered special length cross tee at either
end of the future lighting opening.
2.3 Please note the special rout hole spacing and the
unidirectionality of these pre-engineered, special length
cross tees and be mindful of the miter locations on these grid
components when working with Silhouette grid.
2.2 Pre-engineered, special length cross tees should be
installed perpendicular to and intersect with the 12' long main
beams installed in step 1.

3.1 At this point perimeter cross tees can be installed outside
of the “big box”, created in steps 1 and 2, and attached or
temporarily secured to the wall or perimeter angle molding to
verify the ceiling is square.
3.2 The “big box” or a connected standard ceiling will have to
be used to square up the ceiling.
3.3 Make any and all necessary adjustment to square up the
ceiling structure.

5.5 NOTE: When black iron is used to support/suspend the
ceiling, Channel Beam Splice (CBS hangers) shall be used
to support the ceiling system. Install CBS hangers on the
suspension system components running parallel to the lighting,
and connect to black iron, spacing of the CBS hangers shall
be as required by local code. Lighting connector brackets may
still be used to connect to the cross tees running perpendicular
to the lighting fixture, but no hanger wire is needed on the LCB
when using the CBS hangers.
5.1 The lighting connector bracket is installed every 4 feet
starting 2 feet in from the end of the linear lighting opening.
5.2 The lighting connector brackets installs through the rout
holes on the special length main beams or cross tees running
parallel to the continuous linear lighting opening and connects
with the special length cross tees being installed perpendicular
to the continuous linear lighting opening.
5.3 The lighting connector bracket is hung from a standard
hanger wire and gets connected to the perpendicular special
length cross tees via one 1/8" pop rivet.
5.6 The special length main beams being installed
perpendicular to the continuous linear lighting opening which
do not intersect with the lighting connector bracket need to be
secured with an STAC clip and single pop rivet.
5.4 Proper installation requires the rivet to be installed through
the hole in the special length cross tee first and then into the
lighting connector bracket.
5.7 Proper installation requires the rivet to be installed through
the hole in the special length cross tee first and then into the
STAC clip.

7.1 Install ceiling tiles. Some ceiling tiles will not be of the
standard 24" x 24" or 30" x 30" size, specifically the ceiling
tiles located adjacent to the continuous linear lighting opening.
Armstrong has these special size ceiling tiles available for
purchase.
