A drop ceiling grid can also be installed using a more modern looking 9/16” wide metal grid. This ceiling grid is commonly called ‘fineline’ or ‘narrow’ grid and has a more sleek and distinctive look than the classic drop ceiling grid design.
The 9/16” or fineline narrow grid also comes in different designs like the ‘Armstrong Silhouette’ grid or the USG Fineline grid, both commonly known as the ‘Bolt Slot Grid’. Other designs include the Armstrong Sonata XL or the USG Identitee ceiling grid.
