Commercial Ceilings supplies from Delaware County, University City, West and South Philadelphia, PA,

Main Beam, Main Runner, Main Tee: Primary or main beams of the type of ceiling suspension system in which the structural members are mechanically locked together. Provide direct support for cross runners and may support lighting fixtures and air diffusers, as well as the acoustical tile. Supported by hanger wires attached directly to the existing structure or installed perpendicular to carrying channels and supported by specially designed sheet metal or wire clips attached to the carrying channels. Typically a 12' piece located 4' on center. Also referred to as H runners and Z bars.

Mineral Wool: A man-made wool-like material of fine inorganic fibers made from slag, used as loose fill or formed into blanket, batt, block, board, or slab shapes for thermal and acoustical insulation.

ML: Cross tee end detail that is a hook insertion contrasted with the XL that is stab insertion. The ML end detail is quick and easy to install however, it does not meet most seismic requirements greater than Zone 2.

Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC): Average sound absorption coefficient measured at four frequencies: 250, 500, 1,000 and 2,000 Hz expressed to the nearest integral multiple of 0.05. Rates the ability of a ceiling or wall panel or other construction to absorb sound. NRC is the fraction of sound energy, averaged over all angles of direction and from low to high sound frequencies, that is absorbed and not reflected.

Override: Offset on the end of some cross tees that rests on top of the supporting members flange. Increases stability and moves cut edge of tee out of the visible plane of the ceiling.

Plenum:In suspended ceiling construction, the space between the suspended ceiling and the main structure above.

Scoring: Process of cutting grooves into the face of acoustical panels creating a different geometric visual with decorative and some acoustical benefit. Scoring often mimics the suspension grid, camouflaging it and making 2' x 2' and 2' x 4' panels look like 12" x 12" tile.

Scrubbable: For applications where cleanliness is a priority, acoustical units may require cleaning beyond normal maintenance procedures.

Stab End Detail: Designed to be inserted with a forward motion.

Stitching: Dimples impressed in grid members to knit the webs together.

Suspension: A metal grid suspended from hanger rods or wires, consisting of main beams and cross tees, clips, splines and other hardware which supports lay-in acoustical panels or tiles. The completed ceiling forms a barrier to sound, heat, and fire. It also absorbs in-room sound and hides ductwork and wiring in the plenum.

Tegular: A functional edge detail. Tegular suspended ceiling panels have a rabbeted/reveal edge design that allows them to extend below the supporting grid, making the grid less conspicuous.

Tile: Acoustical ceiling board, usually 12" x 12", which is stapled, cemented, or suspended by a concealed grid system. Edges are often kerfed and cut back.

UBC 25-2: Uniform Building Code (seismic standard).

UL Label: An identification affixed to a building material or component, with the authorization of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
