STORAGE AND HANDLING of WoodGrid® Coffered Ceilings
Prior to installation, materials for a WoodGrid® Coffered Ceiling should not be stored in damp areas or freshly plastered buildings. Wood mouldings should be stored on a flat, level surface in a dry, well-ventilated building. Cover to keep clean but allow circulation. Relative humidity should not be less than 30% or greater than 50%. Wood mouldings should not be subjected to abnormal heat, extreme dryness, humid conditions or sudden changes therein. They should be conditioned to average prevailing humidity of the locality before installing.
MAINTAINANCE of WoodGrid® Coffered Ceilings
If you ordered your WoodGrid® Coffered Ceiling pre-finished, the finish is a high solids conversion varnish (amino alkyd conversion varnish system, Krystal Water White non-yellowing formula) for interior use and is able to tolerate extreme moisture, heat or household chemicals. The finish is made by ML Campbell and is for professional application only. Clean up with soap and water or a damp cloth. Do not use furniture polish. Light dusting with a static cloth is recommended for a WoodGrid® Coffered Ceiling. Unfinished parts of the WoodGrid® Coffered Ceiling should not be exposed to high levels of moisture.
WoodGrid® Coffered Ceiling components should not be subjected to heat or extreme dryness. Heating vents should be directed away from the wood components so as not to blow warm air at or near the grid as it could cause shrinkage that allows the coffers to loosen and fall. Do not allow excessive heat to accumulate in the area above the coffered ceiling. Humidity levels are best kept at 35% to 45%.
It is recommended that the suspension hardware be checked every 5 years to be sure that all connections are secure.
