Identifying your grid system

The first step to finding your ceiling grid system online, is to firstly identify what brand of grid system you have. Many people aren’t familiar with the amount of different manufacturers and brands that exist in the ceilings market.

The most commonly found brands are Knauf AMF, Armstrong Zentia, Rockfon CMC & AMF Donn. These grid brands are found in most suspended ceiling systems due to their high quality, competitive pricing and warranty’s.

To identify your grid & noggin components, either use our Ceiling Grid Matcher, which well show you the types of connections on the grid. Or do the following:

  1. Check the end connection component of the grid
  2. Check the connection holes for shape
  3. Check for brand stamps down the length of the grid parts
  4. Check for any logos
  5. Check the width of the grid, is it 24mm or 15mm?
  6. Send us a picture of the grid end and connection hole

The different sizes & parts

Suspended ceiling grids are made in two widths, 24mm standard grid and 15mm narrow grid, also known as Microlook. These two options are offered depending on the finish you are looking for. The 24mm grid is the standard system you will find in most ceilings, that is compatible with normal board edge ceiling tiles and tegular ceiling tiles. The 15mm narrow grid is compatible with the above board edge tiles, and Microlook ceiling tiles. This is due to the edge detail needing to be much thinner.

Armstrong Prelude Cross Tee Hook

The components that make up your grid system to 600mm x 600mm are below:

  1. Main Runner / Main Tee
  2. 1200mm Cross Tee
  3. 600mm Cross Tee
  4. Wall Angle / Edge Trim

You must use all of these components in order to build your grid system correctly. So, if it is replacement cross tee bars you require only, you need find out which length of tee bar it is. For a brand new grid system, we offer suspended ceiling grid kits that are pre made for simplicity.
