ASTM WK44242

    New Practice for Installation of Metal Suspension Ceiling Systems for Gypsum Board Applications

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C11.03 | Committee C11 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    New standard to cover seismic installation of metal suspension ceiling systems for Gypsum Board applications. This would be similar to the standard used for metal suspended ceiling systems for lay-in panels in standard E580 developed and maintained by Committee E33. This new standard will help with installation of gypsum board metal suspension ceiling systems in seismic design category C,D,E,F. There is currently much confusion in the building departments as to proper seismic installs. This installation standard will help address the current seismic installation needs.
