Armstrong Drywall Grid... Quikstix System


Are there any members on this forum that have used this system.

I have a job that either requires a drop ceiling with acoustic panels or the quikstixs systems and install standard wallboard.

We will attaching the wooden I-beams... ductwork is in the way of a future recreation room.

Thanks,

Tom

Once, about 12 yrs ago.


We thought it would have been easier just framing drop ceilings after it was done.

If you did them all the time it would get easier. Good luck

If an expensive tile is needed then go with the drywall ceiling on RMX. If the tile is cheap go with the grid and no drywall

Do it all the time, extremely fast, I have easily done 3,000 ft/2 in a day. Let me tell you you don't want to hang ceilings that damn big. One you start hanging.....
