Installing a Rondo Duo grid ceiling can be a great way to create an attractive and functional ceiling in your space. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you install it:

Grid Ceiling - Step 1 Measure

Step 1: Preparation and Planning

  • Measure the Area: Accurately measure the ceiling area where you plan to install the grid.
  • Materials and Tools: Purchase Rondo Duo grid components, including main tee DUO1, cross tees DUO2, steel wall angles DUO5, and hangers. You'll also need tools like a drill, tape measure, tin snips, and a laser level.
  • Safety Equipment: Ensure you have safety gear like gloves, eye protection, and a hard hat.

Step 2: Setting the Perimeter

  • Mark the Ceiling Level: Use a laser level to mark the desired height of the ceiling on the walls.
  • Install Wall Angles: Secure wall angles along the marked lines on all walls using appropriate fixings.

Step 3: Installing Main Tees

  • Locate Main Tee Positions: Determine the positioning of the main tees based on the ceiling layout and panel size.
  • Install Suspension Wires: Securely fix suspension wires to the overhead structure at the determined main tee positions.
  • Hang Main Tees: Attach the main tees to the suspension wires, ensuring they are level and aligned with the wall angles.

Step 4: Adding Cross Tees

  • Insert Cross Tees: Snap the cross tees into place perpendicular to the main tees at the specified intervals.
  • Check for Squareness: Regularly check to ensure that the grid is square and level as you add more cross tees.

Step 5: Completing the Grid

  • Install Additional Tees: Continue adding main and cross tees as per your design, ensuring everything remains level and properly aligned.
  • Cut to Fit: Trim any tees as necessary to fit the perimeter.

Step 6: Insert Ceiling Tiles

  • Ceiling Tiles: Choose appropriate Ceiling Tiles for your grid.
  • Install Panels: Carefully lift and place the tiles into the grid, starting from one corner and working across.

Step 7: Finishing Touches

  • Inspect and Adjust: Inspect the installation, making any necessary adjustments to ensure all panels sit flush and securely.
  • Clean Up: Remove any debris, dust, or excess material from the new ceiling.

Additional Tips:

  • Stay Organized: Keep your workspace tidy and tools organized for efficiency.
  • Follow Manufacturer’s Instructions: Always refer to Rondo’s specific installation guidelines.
