Normally I use a bit of angle for hangers but today used 6a , I think you’re referring to the bit I put in the wrong place and crudely rectified the mistake otherwise known as cornelius butterflyus (y)

It' easy enough once you've done a few I think it' better than wood.. truer lighter just as strong and easier to do.
We done an acoustic ceiling for a micro pub good size .. great system passed with flying colours.

I was referring to the one at the back, top part in particular that is fixed to the ceiling

Just a hiccup I expect where I put a couple hangers in the wrong place and moved them but chopped away at the original hanger, still just learning by trial and error I guess. I think in this picture you can really see how good the systems can be with all the pipes and wires above. I’ve got a laser and a hilti collated so I’m basically a fixer now? ;)

Done it for years till the prices went s**t and everyone was on it, just need to set out right for where your first board is going, this will determine your top hat, strengtheners and hangers, also the clips are better than the screws incase you make a mistake.

I’m still a bit green and can’t get on with the hangers, they are better though!
