Rockfon has unveiled an improved range of its Chicago Metallic high-performance ceiling grid systems and accessories that it says will save time on-site and make installations easier.

Among the enhancements are a new slot distance on the Chicago Metallic T24 and T15 grids from 150mm to 100mm, giving six slots on every main runner per 600mm module, instead of just four. Lighter packaging – now less than 20kg – is easier to carry, open and identify on-site, and can be resealed and reused to store excess grid.

Rockfon has also created three unique hold down clips to prevent ceiling tiles from becoming misplaced during dismounting, cleaning or impact, or on sloped installations. New corner caps for W profile (shadow moulding wall angle) will enable installers to achieve neat, finished corners without gaps using W8x12 and W10x15 profiles.
