Ceiling Clip, (pair)

Applications
Ceiling Clips are designed to mount overhead panels to ceiling furring.  These Ceiling Clips are a pair of hidden ceiling panel clips that lock together both side to side and front to back and still allow panels to remain removable.

The Ceiling Clip is the first clip of this kind specifically designed for horizontal application.  No manufacturer currently recommends the use of standard Z Clips because panels continually expand and contract in size. This movement has a tenancy to pull and push against the clip. Over time this creeping action can literally move the panel off its clips. The Ceiling Clips have a mechanical locking edge that physically prevent the clips pulling of the edge. They offer improved stability and safety.

This fastener allows panels to be lifted and dropped into place, securely hanging panels from any wood furring that will hold screws.  Once in place, the panels can be removed, but only with coordinated lifting on all edges (1/16” ceiling clearance).  The Ceiling Clip has a Z-hook shape, with a 1/8” overlapping edge, and end stops, that prevent one clip slipping off the other. The clips have 3 holes for secure mounting, and are rated up to 25 lbs.

Description
The clips come as a pair in two halves, single pieces, or 12’ lengths and single clips. In both cases, one clip is attached to ceiling furring, while the other is attached to the panel backs (screws supplied) in a corresponding location. Accurate alignment can be achieved using our template (Ceiling Clip template SKU 921). The panels are then lifted into place and locked by dropping and coupling the clips into place.  The panel position is adjustable up to a 1/4” allowing for material expansion.  The panels can be held and position by adding small amounts of silicone where the clips join. 


Product Advantages
This is a unique fastener that directly clips panels to ceilings, while remaining removable and vibration resistant; with a mechanical lock that holds the panels firmly in place and aligned.

 

Strength Testing
Tensile Failure (Vertical weight holding) = 200 lbs. –  Safe Working Load (weight holding) = 20 lbs.
Shear Failure (Horizontal pull side pull) = 160 lbs. –  Side to Side Movement, after hitting stops = 20 lbs.
