ceiling tiles and access regulations

Posted by first_timer (My Page) on

Hi all,
(I searched the forum but couldn't find exactly what I needed).

Does anyone know if there are any ceiling tiles or ceiling systems that qualify as accessible?

We're finishing our basement and don't have the height for a dropped ceiling. We need to keep access in many parts of the basement for gas, plumbing and electrical pipes and wires etc.

Thanks!

p.s. I'm in BC, Canada if that makes a difference.

Armstrong has a system that installs up against the joists. Check out their website. See if that fits the bill.

cieling max is one company sold at HD. I used them and also tried another company that I cant think of right now. The second company was a little cheaper and a little easier to work with, but you have to order it online so you need to know how muck to order. Do a search online and im sure you will find it. If not, I can get the info for you.

Wow thanks guys, I found so much Googling those two names.
Looks like these are the types of products I need.

CeilingLink is the other zero clearance product that directly connects to the bottom of the joists. It is the competitor to CeilingMax.

FYI - I haven't decided which product to go w/ yet but it will definitely be 1 of the 2. I want to maximize the head space.

Cieling link is the company I was thinking off. I used both and there both ok.

Here are some pretty good pictures of direct-mount grid installations!

BasementCeilingTiles.com has a direct/surface/joist mounted grid that is made of vinyl, so will never rust. You can even get it different colors, or wood-look. They also have the waterproof ceiling tiles that are a little more durable/rigid and won't get damaged from moving them around periodically.
