How to construct’ Gyproc CasoLine MF suspended ceilings - Basics

13 Dec 2022

Undertaken within the new Dry-lining workshop area of Saint-Gobain's Kingscourt Academy, in a hands-on practical manner, see, learn, and ensure your understanding of core detailing requirements for installation and sign-off. With a specific focus on CasoLine MF suspended ceilings, learn how these lightweight metal gauge concealed framing systems should be constructed correctly in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. 

CasoLine MF suspended ceiling systems can be specified and adapted to offer project teams multiple performance and detailing solutions. The ability to change the suspension depths and create both horizontal and vertical elements provide for a framing system that can be used to not only create expansive areas of horizontal ceiling, but also the inclusion of change of level and bulkhead features.  

During this day long course, while working in small teams and instructed by one of the Technical Academy’s experienced trainers, participants will be given the opportunity to construct a simple CasoLine MF ceiling which includes the most common details often required in site situations. Attendees will be instructed on the key framing requirements and perimeter detailing for different plasterboard linings along with the application of service openings for access hatches, change of levels and the forming of vertical bulkheads. 

This course is one of Saint-Gobain's Technical Academy’s three new practical installation courses which will form part of a wider series of ‘How to construct’ installation courses looking at the wider range of Gyproc metal framed partition, ceiling, wall lining, and steel framed encasement systems.
