Part of the complete drywall grid system by CertainTeed Ceilings, is an innovative ceiling grid locking system that provides the industry’s longest unsupported spans, offering 10x faster, easier installation in hallway and corridor applications. QuickSpan features solid cross tees that audibly click into place for a positive lock. The locking channel includes pre-measured locking tabs spaced every 8” on center, providing installers with peace of mind that the layout is accurate, and the channel is set.

The CertainTeed SmartFit Yoke is an accessory that allows installers to assemble the entire suspension system prior to installing liner light fixtures, diffusors and other challenging ceiling components, with fewer hanger wires. For precise openings, the two-piece system has pre-drilled holes every inch, allowing for common 4", 6" and 8" fixtures and channels. This accessory is designed to be compatible with the entire line of CertainTeed acoustical and drywall suspension systems, adding convenience and ease of use for contractors and installers.
