How To Ceiling - installing a groin ceiling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Installing a Fast Arch Groin Ceiling is quick and easy:

  1. Start by marking the drop height on the side walls.
  2. Install one of the "C" tracks - the actual groin member.
  3. Install the opposite side "C" track.
  4. Install the perpendicular "C" tracks.
  5. Install the wall guides.
  6. Using either wood or metal studs that you supply locally, install the cross members.

Important Notes:

  • ALWAYS WORK FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP
  • For even easier installation on wood framing, Fast Arch has designed a double-faced magnetic hammer.  A 3/4" roofing nail can be driven through the arch nailing flange and into the wood with a single stroke.  This tool allows even very large arches to be installed by a single person and speeds installation time.  For more information on this tool and its availability, please call us.
