The recommended false ceiling system for Bison Panel is the usual suspended grid system which has gained popularity in Building industry.

The thickness of the Bison Panel for false ceiling can be 6 mm or 8 mm depending on the requirement of thermal comfort. For better thermal comfort a 32 mm thick Thermocol may be cut to size and pasted on the top of Bison Panel stuck with diluted PVA based resin. The false ceiling can be either ‘T’ grid type or flush jointed type. In either case the longitudinal supports shall be spaced at 610 mm intervals and cross supports at 610 mm or 1220 mm centres.

Grid System

Grid can be made either with steel or aluminium Teesections or with timber with suitable wall line supports. The suspension arrangement can be with G.I. wires of adequate guage taken to required level from the sofit.

Bison Panels 6 mm and 8 mm thick arerecommended for false ceilings.
Thegrid shall be 610 x 610 mm or 610 x 1220 mm (2’0x 2’0 or 2’0 x 4’0.)
Inareas where change of humidity and temperatureare applicable and frequent it is recommended to adopt 610 mm x 610 mm grid only.

TheT-Sections (30 x 35 mm) for the grid frame rolledfrom 0.5 or 0.7 mm GI Sheet with prepainted Steel caps are available in the market. They come in a kit form comprising of longitudinal runners, cross bits and junction components.

Incase, Aluminium T-sections are used for the grid,the minimum thickness of the section shall be 1.2 mm and size 30 x 35 mm.

Suspenders can be either 8 swg G.I. wire or 0.7 x 12

mm G.I. flats. They are available in the market as coils.

The maximum distance allowed between suspenders in longitudinal direction and cross direction is 1220 mm or 4’0. Closer intervals may be adopted depending on the sofit conditions.

When false ceiling is under RCC slab, suspenders can be tied to suitable clamps fixed in the slab by drilling, screw fixing with self expanding caps. The screws and self expanding caps are available in the market in required size.



Itisnecessary to introduce a turn buckle inthe suspender for easy and faster levelling of the grid. Ordinary G.I. J-bolt can serve as turn buckle.

Itisimportant to fix wall angle perfectly tolevel as the level of the entire grid depends on the level of wall angle.

Wherever the lighting openings occur, extrasuspenders will have to be provided to take the load of the outfits. The panels will have to be painted in dry condition on both sides and the edges in particular before inserting them in the grid.

Aclearance of 2 mm shall be given betweenthe board and the grid on all sides for taking care of thermal expansion if any and / or easy insertion
