Ceiling sheet thickness nominal 0.2mm and is manufactured in roll form with ultrasonic flush welded joints starting at approx 1.5m centres, for printed panels the seam welding will be below. Plastic track can be heat bent to match curved profiles. Optional aluminium track is anodised to 20 microns with a serrated type to create curved profiles or to form three-dimensional shapes, domes or vaults.


Track is screwed (& plugged) to supplied surfaces which should be rigid and true. Plasterboard should be skimmed and have a background member within, to take 12-15kg per linear metre tension. The jointing double track can be suspended using rigid and true timber or MF metal studwork. Installation of the sheet requires raising of air temperature to approx 100ºF/38ºC using propane gas heaters by us albeit the site should be heated in winter. All adjustments and apertures for lighting, ducts and pipework are made on site. Silicone sealed tracks can achieve impermeable barrier, as required for swimming pools and asbestos containment etc. Decorated walls must have 1st coat applied and tiled walls must be grouted before tracking. (ask for separate detail for tiles and wall cladding) Wall coverings should be applied after tracking. Care should be taken by other trades once the panel is installed to prevent damage and the area/void should be clear of all obstruction, objects or flies etc. As the product is a fabric material a minor deflection may be apparent in some panels, it is advisable to have a minimum gap above doors etc of 100mm. We can accept no responsibility for any effects achieved. It is important that the area of installation is sufficiently ready to allow installation in the opinion of Stretch Ceilings Ltd, all pricing is given with normal working hours. See our Terms and Conditions of sale available on our website.

Air Movement

All air handling within the installed area must be balanced to prevent ceiling movement and possible damage for pools. Handling equipment should not be run with covers off during servicing.
