A: Hi John. You will need to determine the size of your border panels first. Note that brackets should not be spaced more than 4 feet apart. Here is the link for installing the QuickHang grid kits: https://www.armstrongceilings.com/content/dam/armstrongceilings/residential/installation/quick-hang-installation-kit-instructions-en.pdf
A: Every 4 feet, on the main rails
A: Hello Pat, Yes they will!
A: I switched from the hanger wire to these - best decision I made in my basement finishing project. Super easy to use. The rods are about six inches long. The clips wrap around the bottom of your floor joists for the floor above. There are little tabs with points you can hammer into the side of the joist to hold in place - then use two nails to hammer in the side to permanently secure (provided). To adjust the height of the rod to fit your length of drop on the ceiling you are installing, you squeeze the clip so the rod slides up and down to the height you need. Once you have at the level you want, let go of the clip and the tension holds in place. I will definitely use these again if ever installing another drop ceiling.
A: I believe they come in both 12in and 6in. The wire is made of what looks to be a typical 12ga. wire like you might buy in bulk and the hanger is a medium guage steel. It springs enough to compress to adjust but holds the wire very well.
A: Hello Rabbit, Our QuickHang Grid Hook Kits come in 6" or 12" lengths for 2 X 2 in white, 2 X 4 in white and 2 X 2 in black. These are made of steel.
A: The wire is about 6” long. They are metal.
A: So it won't support lighting laying within the grid 2x2 or 1x4 led panels, or recessed cans?
A: Hello Andrew, The Quick Hang Kits are designed to be able to carry an acoustical suspension system which is the tile and the grid. We do not have any load test data for this system since this is residential only and is not meant to support anything other then the grid and tile.
