All items are provided as standard in White – RAL 9010. If you require a different finish, please get in touch.
Type US trims are used to create an upstand perimeter to areas of all types of suspended ceiling systems. Type US trims are commonly used to form the upstand around a floating island area of a suspended ceiling which is suspended below the main ceiling area. These can be curved on plan to both concave and convex radii to form curved edge ceiling layouts.
Supplied in 3000mm lengths, extruded from architectural grade aluminium alloy to BS 1474. Finished as standard in white polyester powder coating to RAL 9010, 20% Gloss, or chromate etch primer suitable for direct over-painting on site after fixing. Non-standard lengths, factory curving and alternative factory applied finishes are available to special order.
Wedgelock cleats to form straight joints, internal and external corners and abutment details are also available to order separately.

Designed specifically for use with suspended ceiling systems where the infill tiles are metal, mineral fibre, g.r.g, plasterboard or rigidised mineral wool. All trims have the structural capacity to support the type of infill tiles they are designed to be used with, and a substantial factor of safety has been allowed for in their design. However, trims are not designed to support loads other than their infill loads and due consideration should be given to independent support for any additional imposed loads from items such as light fittings, air conditioning units ect.
Perimeter trims can have a bead of silicone mastic applied between the trim and the wall to improve both the aesthetic appearance and sound insulation if required. Perimeter trims should always be backed with a layer of wall boarding material and should never be fixed directly in contact with the building structural framing.
