(Q) Can a Accordion Door be installed on a suspended ceiling ?
(A) If your suspended ceiling is being installed at the same time as your Accordion Door.The use of a recessed “ hat channel ” will make the job easier. If your ceiling is already in place, a common practice is to place a 1” x 6” board on the underside of the your ceiling and another board on the topside of your ceiling. Then fastened these together making a sort of sandwich effect, your ceiling material will be in between. You may need to put some support wires or rods from above to help support the door and plates. Then your track can be attached to the underside of the added board. It’s important to note that the finished opening size will be affected, so as the old saying goes measure twice – cut once.
(Q) What is a Hat Channel Track?
(A) Aluminum hat channel is used for 2’ x 4’ acoustic drop in ceiling tile systems, allowing the contractor to pre-install a flange for the track and incorporate the hat channel into the ceiling grid system. The ceiling tiles actually rest on this flange.
When measuring for doors utilizing hat channel, the finished opening dimension should reflect the distance from the surface to which the hat channel attaches to the finished floor rather than from the finished surface of the acoustic ceiling.
Why the strange term? Hat channel looks like a top hat, hence the name.
