Suspend ceiling on metal portal roof pitches

Postby nigelivey » Tue Feb 15, 2011 3:17 pm

Hi all
I was after some advise on how to suspend a plasterboard ceiling. I use metal framing all the time but have a client who wants to suspend a framing system off a metal portal roof. Can anyone point me in the right direction for fixing hangers onto the roof frame? The portal roof needs framing out on the slope to give a full height ceiling. The portal is made of steel box section. Any ideas?

Have a google for RSJ clips. They make hammer on ones for fixing pipes & electrical fittings. This link will give you an idea Google:{keyword}&gclid=COitsY_7jKcCFQJO4QodhUY9ew
