Perimeter Angle for AirFRAME®

Perimeter Angle for AirFRAME®

In order to make a smooth aesthetic transition from the AirFRAME® to the hard lid ceiling, SLD Technology will send a trim that attaches to the outside of the AirFRAME's grid for the hard ceiling to rest on. These angle pieces are cut to fit in specific location so be sure to consult the Ship Loose Drawings which will be included with the loose hardware for proper placement.



Mounting:

Primary:

The primary method is to use self-tapping "Tek" screws in the uppermost mounting hole of the perimeter angle. This hole will align with the uppermost grove in the grid of the AirFRAME and will provide vertical alignment reference. Once screwed in, there is no lateral adjustment so take care when mounting. Start at the corners aligning both pieces that form the corner. One of the corner pieces will have a leg that sticks out to form the corner. Align the two pieces so that there is minimal gap AND the tab that sticks out is in line with the adjacent piece.



Once the corners are on, align the intermediate straight pieces so the gap on either side are even.


Damage to lighting will occur if screws are used incorrectly. ONLY use uppermost grove and upper mounting hole in perimeter angle with screws. See diagram below.



Alternate:

An alternate mounting method is to use rivets to secure the perimeter angle to the AirFRAME. These rivets are not included. 
1/8X1/16-1/8 rivets

Caulking:

The seams of the angles should be caulked on the room side. If installed correctly, gaps at seams will be minimal and unnoticeable once caulked.
The seam between the hard ceiling and the perimeter angle should also be caulked or if using drywall, properly mudded and sanded to form a smooth transition.
