Type Y trims are used to create junction details between metal suspended ceiling systems and adjacent areas of plasterboard. The horizontal web of the shadow-gap designs can be factory slotted to form an air vent if required. Curved trims manufactured from composite sections to reproduce type Y trims are available.
Supplied in 3000mm lengths, extruded from architectural grade aluminium alloy to BS 1474. Pre-punched with diagonal fixing slots and holes in the plastering fin suitable for fixing by drywall screws.

Designed specifically for use as part of a conventional dry wall, partition or ceiling system with either single or multiple layers of plasterboard.
Framework can be of metal stud, timber or other suitable medium provided that the structural requirements are met. Vertical studs should never be greater than 600mm apart. Trims are designed to create aesthetic appeal within dry lining systems and are not intended to improve structural performance. Construction depends upon the type of trim being used and typical application examples are shown on the data sheets. Trims should always be supported by structural members, with additional framing provided where necessary. Double layers of plasterboard will result in greater rigidity. Trims should always be backed by a layer of plasterboard and never fixed directly in contact with the structural framing. The use of additional layers of plasterboard may be necessary to achieve certain designs.
