This specification covers metal ceiling suspension systems used primarily to support acoustical tile or acoustical lay-in panels.
The testing method for establishing the load carrying capacity is embedded in C635. It is not in the proper format for an embedded standard. There are additional tests commonly used for grid certification that are not documented within an ASTM standard. The proposed standard would contain all necessary testing details. when approved, the embedded test in C 635 would be replaced by a reference to the proposed standard.
