3 Reference General Construction Knowledge Section 7 – Construct Ceiling Frames (from P278) The ceiling frame is the horizontal area between the top of walls and the roof Consists of ceiling joists,trimmers, hanging beams and counter beams

4 CEILING JOISTS – P279 Joists carry the ceiling sheets and provide a lateral tie between base of opposing rafters

5 CEILING TRIMMERS – P Sometimes called trimming joists, short lengths at right angles between ceiling joists. Give fixing to ends of ceiling sheets and can provide fixing for internal walls.

6 HANGING BEAMS – P280,81 These provide support to the ceiling joists mid-span, must be blocked at ends and if large sections may need to be strapped

7 Trimmers Ceiling Joists Hanging beam

8 SUPPORT TO JOISTS – P280 There are three common types of support between ceiling joists and hanging beams, joist straps, triple grips and ceiling dogs

9 Remember: Hanging beams go above the joists, so we have to block the ends. see page 281

10 CUTTING HANGING BEAMS P281 Where hanging beams run across ceiling joists with end protruding past the rafter line as in a hipped roof, they must be cut but also supported via a trimmer

11 COUNTER BEAMS – P282 Counter beams run at 90deg. To the hanging beam and supports it when its length exceeds its allowable span, ends of counter beams are packed slightly to allow for deflection.

12 SET OUT & ERECTION OF FRAME – from P283 GABLE ROOF the set out of the ceiling frame is based on the set out of the rafters First check top plates for straight & square Mark position of gable end rafters Then work from one end, set out position of common rafters, other side of line becomes joists See sketch

13

14 Next cut all ceiling joists to length and fix into position, double skew nail Cut and fix ceiling trimmers to ends Cut and fix trimmers above internal walls where required

15 Lastly fit hanging beams to the centre of the ceiling joists length over each room as required Remember fixing and blocking for hangers

16 REVIEW ON WORKSHEET Review this part of your text book In your own words answer the questions on your worksheet

17 REVIEW ANSWERS TO WORK SHEET Purpose of frame…. Designed to enclose the room, keep it free from dust and it also provides insulation and Security Function of ceiling joists… The horizontal member that carries the load of the ceiling sheets and act as a tie between the rafters at their base

18 Function of trimmers…. To provide fixing for ends of ceiling sheets, also internal walls where they fall between joists and help give lateral stability to frame Function & position of hanging beams…. To support ceiling joists mid-span, must be supported on load bearing walls & blocked at ends

19 Fixing to hanging beams by…. Joist strap, triple grip, or ceiling dog and should be fixed alternate sides at every second joist Hanging beams at external wall …. Trim hanging beam to pitch of rafter Function of counter beams…. Run 90 deg. to hanging beam and provides support to them where they exceed their own span

20 Set out and erection… Check top plates are straight and square Mark gable end rafters at each end From one end set out common rafters marking each side of line for (r) rafter and (j) joist Cut joists to length and fix into position, double skew nail Fix trimmers to ends and where required for internal walls Fix hanging beams to the centre of joists length in rooms required Provide strapping where required
