Kwikloc Seismic Ceiling Systems
The Kwikloc Seismic ceiling system hosts
unique advantages in ultimate seismic
ceiling design. The wall bracket system
facilitates fixing one side and floating on
the opposite side of both plane directions
in a ceiling installation. Through the
use of a patented two part wall angle
system and sliding bracket assembly, the
system provides the unique feature of
the maintenance of a flat, even plane for
accurate tile nesting throughout the entire
installation. This is particularly important
in health projects, ie hospitals, medical
centres, laboratories etc, where hygiene
standards are of high importance.
The Kwikloc Seismic ceiling system brings
to the industry new levels of seismic
ceiling performance, having sustained
up to 3G tested forces with 100%
vertical uplift. This represents 25–30%
increased performance when compared
to other ceiling systems available on the
market today.
As a representative of the testing facility
in New York state, USA commented,
“this system was tested to the limits of
our equipment and the only way we could
see the ceiling failing is if it was on top
of the St Andrews fault in California with
the largest earthquake that could ever
occur.” And further, from the engineering
reporter / photographer “this is a very
good system. Best we’ve seen. Normally
systems fail at 2.0 to 2.25” (it should be
noted that standard testing requirements
include 67% vertical uplift).
strength • hygiene • performance
The ultimate seismic solution.
Another major feature / breakthrough
represented in the Kwikloc Seismic
system is significantly lessened three
or five way strutting requirements.
Extrapolated engineering reports confirm
that areas up to 81m2 free of bracing
requirements are appropriate. This greatly
alleviates congestion in ceiling cavity
areas, effectively maintaining adequate
space for important building function
services, ie mechanical ventilation,
electrical, plumbing and other important
services particularly with respect to
health facilities.

Aluminium seismic ceiling systems
The Kwikloc system has brought new levels to the market in
seismic design with the ability to cope with 3G forces and 100%
vertical uplift. Fully tested at world renowned facilities.
Team of International Engineers as
our support team
Studform sought out the best experts in their fields to take our
testing very seriously. Our experts included well recognised
engineers in the field from Australia and the USA.

Seismic ceiling grid
Aluminium Seismic Ceiling
Grid, hosting unique features
and exceptional advantages.
The seismic clip shown in the figure above
represents a quick, cost effective solution
and hence alleviating significant bracing
requirements throughout the ceiling
system. It is very quick to install, with a
simple snap-in function.
The engineered locking systems provide
positive joining of main Tees and Cross
Tees, with installer ease, without the need
of any additional operations eg. pop
riveting, twisting etc. fig. 1 resulting in a
smooth flat joint and thus eliminating the
ghosting effect between the ceiling tile
and grid.
The ultimate seismic solution.
Unique dual acting wall
angle design
Premium Non-Corrosive
Finish
With the Kwikloc Seismic two part wall
angle and the floating bracket assembly,
this system effectively maintains a flat,
even plane for accurate tile nesting
without gapping. The retractable bracket
facilitates movement away from wall
edges, while the two part angle facilitates
compression in the opposite direction.
All aluminium sections are powdercoated
white on an automatic line resulting in a
consistent non-corrosive finish, particularly
suited to buildings where quality and
longevity is a priority. Other finishes are
available with a small surcharge.
Press Stamped Identification
Enables future extensions to projects
to proceed in a consistent and
orderly manner.

Reduced Project Management
Installation time is significantly less than
other aluminium systems, due to the
snap fit locking system. This allows for
condensing of schedules and significantly
reducing administration and labour costs.
Exceeds Standard
Requirements
Suspension points exceed the
requirements of AS/NZS 2785.
Precision manufacturing procedures also

ensure straight grid lines.
Bulkhead / Grid to Plaster
Construction Ease
The Kwikloc System incorporates an
aluminium Bulkhead section which
facilitates the use of quick connection
brackets, thus increasing rigidity
and providing ease of installation.
Also available with the system is
a quick connection grid to plaster

connection brackets to provide a fully
complemented system.
Seismic Requirements
The Kwikloc aluminium ceiling grid
systems have the structural capacity38
to
meet the loading requirements of both
AS 1170.4 and NZS 4203 with respect
to the horizontal and vertical earthquake
