      Direct Fix Ceiling System- allows you to direct fix Furring Channels or Ceiling Battens to concrete, steel or timber ceiling structures. Ideal for suspension ceiling depth less than 200 mm.
      RONDO provided a relevant maximum span tables for Direct fixing clips which it needs to be fixed along the sections in accordance.
      They also suggested customers should follow the building board manufacturers' recommendations when spacing the Furring Channels. 
      Using metal Ceiling Battens in your house is going to save you money for call-back maintenance. Battens do a great job in controlling movement and reduce the chance of cracking boards.
      Rondo provides a range of ceiling batten systems which are suitable for framework spacing from 600 mm to 1200 mm and for use in cyclonic and high wind areas.
      (All ceiling Battens and accompanying clips have been load tested to ensure they meet all relevant standard requirements)

      314 Direct Fixing Clip - 
      to accommodate the increasing use of timber “I” beams, the 314 Clip has two extra nail or screw slots lower down on the clip, with an additional holding tab to assist installation. 
      Cleverly, the temporary holding tab is tapped into the timber beam when the clip is at the right level freeing up both your hands to secure the clip.

      390 Batten Swivel Clip – 

      with the ability to rotate 360°, the swivel clip can easily turn the ceiling batten on an angle that suits the change in roof truss direction. It also incorporates the temporary holding tab for quick and easy installation.
