1. Short projection of the guide tongues
  • Does not disturb the next tile
  • Provides a more shock-absorbent coupling.
2. Locking tongue with latch
  • Gives distinct and safe mounting.
  • Ensures demountability without tools
  • Makes a "click" when the profile is in position.
  • Prevents the cross tee profile from sliding out of the main profile even if only one side is latched.
3. Design of the guide tongues
  • Protects the tongues against shocks and deformation.
  • Produces a more shock-absorbent coupling.
  • Facilitates mechanical connection of the main and cross profiles.

1. V-shaped spine
  • Facilitates the mounting of the tiles, clips, hangers, etc.
2. Narrow spine
  • Facilitates the mounting of the tiles.
3. Design of underside of spine
  • Improves the performance and safety of the clips, hanger mountings, direct mountings, etc.
Ecophon Connect grid systems are available in various lengths and modules, and in four standard colours. Other NCS colours and special lengths and modules, etc., are available to special order.
The Connect T24 Main runner HD offers higher bending stiffness and strength compared to ordinary main runners. It is, for example, used with edge D and DG to ensure these systems meet high demands for strength and precision.
For areas requiring greater resistance to corrosion, the Connect grid system is available in corrosivity category C3 in accordance with ISO 12944-2.
To achieve a three-dimensional ceiling, one of the Ecophon curved suspended ceilings is recommended. The curved profiles, combined with curved absorbers, offer new opportunities both in the use of the space above the suspended ceiling and for the interior's visual impact.
 
Connect Angle trim
Connect Shadow-line trim
Different types of trims or channel trims can be used where the ceiling meets the wall. The Connect range includes a wide selection of trims, from the classic Angle trim to the more elaborate Distance trim.

Ventilation channels, high windows, door openings, stucco work etc can all create a challenge when installing a ceiling. The Connect range therefore offers solutions to overcome these obstacles in an easy way.
Connect detail
Connect Hygiene clip 20
Tiles sometimes have to be fixed into the grid system in some way. One option is to use one of the Connect hold-down clips, the Universal clip, which is available for all tiles.
An example of a clip with a different function is the Ecophon Connect Light fitting clip, which is ideal for use when fixing suspended light fittings, signs or similar to the T-profile.
One of the Connect Splines can be used to maintain the level of tiles that meet with no cross tee. The same applies to the transition in a corner between two shadow channel trims, where a Connect External corner should be used.
It is essential to select a fixing that withstands the loadings involved and to ensure that the fixing is the correct one for the structure. Furthermore, when selecting fixings, consideration must be given to the corrosion resistance requirements. The Connect range includes a comprehensive screw programme designed for suspended ceiling installations.
The Connect range also includes adhesive as an alternative fixing method, e.g. for Ecophon Focus B.

The suspensions selected must be able to carry the suspended ceiling and the additional live loads with a good safety margin against breaking. Installations according to Ecophon installation diagrams fulfil these demands.
Connect Wood perimeter
Wood perimeter is a basic solution for creating a frame around a free hanging unit/ceiling. The perimeter can be used for 15, 20 and 40 mm absorbers.
Ecophon Edge
Edge is a well designed solution to use when the installation does not allow full coverage of the ceiling. Edge is designed for Focus D, DG and E.
Connect offers various perimeter solutions for free hanging ceilings. This involves free hanging units as well as ceilings installed with a distance from the wall. Depending on aesthetics, chosen system and budget, different solutions are offered.
To achieve a complete suspended ceiling solution, the Connect range includes tools, etc., for example:
  • Connect Laser angle - instrument for securing perpendicular grid system.
  • Connect E-plugs - Conceal the gap at the junction between perimeter trim and T-profile.
  • Connect Edge sealant - For sealing cut edges.
  • Connect cutting tool - For creating edges of perimeter tiles.
