GENERAL

If you have pre-customised this work section using the "questions and answers" provided as part of the downloading process, it may be necessary to amend some clauses to suit the final project-specific version.

The section must still be checked and customised to suit the project being specified, by removing any other irrelevant details and adding project-specific details and selections.

 

This section relates to the supply and installation of Rondo Ceiling Systems.  It includes;

Modify / expand this clause to suit requirements of the final version of the section.

 

This section refers to a concealed suspension or direct fixed furring channel system supporting screw-fixed flush-finished plasterboard or other sheet material.

 

Rondo Building Services Pty Ltd offer an engineering design service, delivering project specific documentation prior to consent and tender.  A detailed wind and seismic report as part of the consultant supplied information may be required in order to undertake a design.

If required a PS1 from an independent engineer can be provided for a fee, this process is facilitated by Rondo.  By contacting Rondo through the Masterspec work section support function, the design service can be coordinated with this specification section and other consultant documentation.  Rondo project specific documentation can be attached within the specification Contract Appendix.

 

The ceiling manufacturer/supplier will require some detailed project information to enable their specific design of the ceiling system. Ensure the information is available in this specification and/or on the drawings (for instance ceiling height etc.).

Refer to AS/NZS 2785, Appendix B for a list of typical project information required.

 

The Rondo project specific documentation provides a similar level of documentation to shop drawings.  Shop drawings can be provided if the design service is not required.

BULKHEADS

Form bulkheads to manufacturer requirements.  Diagonally brace at regular intervals to provide lateral stability.  In addition to the dead load of the bulkhead, all bulkheads should be designed for the following minimum loads:

  • 0.25 kPa laterally.
  • 0.15 kPa vertically.

Confirm with Manufacturer/supplier or Structural Engineer.

3.11
INSTALL SEISMIC RESTRAINTS

Install ceiling system seismic restrains and bracing as required to prevent lateral movement and resist the imposed horizontal seismic force, to AS/NZS 2785.

If ceiling systems abut glazing, the horizontal seismic forces generated by the ceiling can damage the glazing.

If large runs of ceilings are terminated at bulkheads, the horizontal seismic forces generated by the ceiling can cause separation between the ceiling and bulkhead if not properly designed.

If the ceiling is terminated at a partition, design the partition for the seismic force generated by the ceiling.

If the partition is terminated at the ceiling, design for the seismic force generated by the partition.

3.12
PENETRATIONS

To AS/NZS 2785 and NZS 4219 generally, with sprinkler systems to NZS 4219 and/or NZS 4541.

Accommodate recessed light fittings, air conditioning outlets and other electrical and/or mechanical services that are fixed to or pass through the ceiling system.  Provide independent support for these as necessary.
