    1. Ceiling suspendor
    2. Suspending Capax BASE-C
    3. Distance Capax 3262
    4. Capax U-FIX
    5. Capax in-line connector
    6. Gustafs Ribs

    Please note: For ceiling use the maximum thickness of the Rib is 28 mm.

    A. Suspend the Capax profiles BASE-C (2) with 600 mm in between them. If needed, connect in-line with 3262-6H. The connection of BASE-C to the ceiling has to be made every 400 mm.
    B. Snap the distance Capax 3262 (3) to the BASE-C profile every 1200 mm and secure with a self-drilling screw in the intersections.
    C. Optionally install an Acoustex felt with some self-adhesive tape to keep it in place during the installation.
    D. Attach the Capax U-FIX clips (4) flush to the BASE-C profile with demountable clips or permanent screws. This step will also hold the Acoustex in place permanently.
    E. Twist the U-FIX (4) clips 90° into a perpendicular position to the BASE-C.
    F. Press the Ribs (6) onto the U-FIX clips and if needed carefully use a squeezing clamp. Use a fixture, during this installation step F, to align the Ribs.
    G. Optionally install an insulation material on top to fill the air gap behind the Ribs.

    When the Ribs are installed with the spring clips, they can be demounted by gently pulling close to all the points of connection (U-FIX + spring clip), starting at one of the ends. Do not try to pull down the whole Rib by pulling at one of the ends only


    In the case of a re-installation of a removed Rib, be sure all spring clips are properly aligned with the center of the holes in the BASE-C or BASE-W profiles before pressing firmly home.
