GAPLOK

On occasion, a partition wall or a glazing line placement may coincide with the main runners or nogs of two-way grid. In this instance there would be no way for a TRACKLOK® to pass through, with 10mm of clearance from the ceiling. GAPLOK allows you to take a 40mm section out of the grid, clamp GAPLOK to bridge the gap and reinstate the grid’s structural integrity and allow the clearance required.



GAPLOK

Objectives

  • Provide clearance from two-way grid lines enabling TRACKLOK® to be installed correctly.
  • Provide a method of re-instating the structural integrity to the two-way grid whilst providing the necessary clearance from the two-way grid, required to install TRACKLOK®.
  • Allow specifiers and installers to effectively brace off partition walls to safeguard people from loss of amenity caused by the behavior of partition wall systems during seismic activity or fire.
  • Ensure partition wall systems comply with building code regulations and ceiling manufacturer warranty requirements.
