A false ceiling is made up of steel structure that forms a grid structure several inches below the ceiling level. The net is then filled with acoustic tiles, which are easy to insert and remove by hand. This type of roof is very affordable and is easy to install using only simple tools and equipment. It can provide an attractive finish to a room while still allowing access to the mechanical and electrical units on the roof. Grid ceilings are available in different styles and designs, although each follows the same basic installation process.


• Lay your ceiling on the paper. Check where your existing junction boxes and air conditioning and heating components are located. Plan ceiling around the air intake or grilles to avoid compromising heating and cooling inside the fountain room. If you plan to add overlapping luminaires, try to locate near an existing junction box for easier installation.

• Decide whether to use tiles 2 feet by 2 feet or 2 feet by 4 feet. These are the standard tile sizes you'll find at most home improvement stores. Keep in mind that 2 by 4 tiles can be installed more quickly, but they can also make a smaller looking room smaller. Use 2-in-2 tiles to make the room appear larger if this is a concern.

• Look for the lowest point on your existing roof, either the bottom of the ceiling beams or the point lower than an HVAC conduit or pipe. Measure down 4 inches from this point and mark this point on one of its walls. This is the level where the network will be installed. If you plan to add overlap luminaires, Measure down 6 inches to give you enough room for the lights.

Its perennial foliage remains attractive throughout the year and its spring flowers are nothing short of beautiful. Phlox subulata forms shallow roots and its horizontal stems light easily so its common name creeping Phlox.

• Install the molded wall around the perimeter of the room, making sure to maintain even the laser level. Use tin shears to cut the molding as needed.

• Run your roof net so that they are perpendicular to the joists. Red is the long pieces of grid that run the length of the room. Place eye hooks every 4 feet on the ceiling and support the netting of the beams using the ceiling cable. The wire wires through the holes already cut at the top of the pipe, and at the end of each pipe should be supported on the wall molding. The net should be placed every 2 feet along the length of the room.

• Set the tees in place. Tees are the shortest network sections running perpendicular to the network. They can be installed by hand by adjusting the connector at each end in the holes already drilled in the network. Testers should be installed every 2 feet along the net, or every 4 feet if you use 2 by 4 tiles. Testers can be cut with scissors if necessary.

• Add HVAC lights and grids as desired. Recessed lights may be inside the grid, although they should also be supported by ceiling cables attached to the beams. Wrap the wires of each light in the conduit for protection, then connect the wires to the nearest junction box. Have an electrician perform this task if you are not comfortable with the wiring. HVAC grilles may also be inside the network, although ceiling wires should be added for added safety.
