Overview of Suspension Rods

Suspension rods, also known as anchor bolts or threaded rods, are indispensable accessories in the construction of electrical and plumbing systems in structural hanging systems.
Suspension rods combine with accompanying accessories to form the framework on the ceiling to anchor and support gypsum panels. They play a key role in load-bearing connections between the gypsum ceiling system and the concrete floor.
They provide stability and high safety during the installation of gypsum ceilings.

Characteristics of Gypsum Ceiling Suspension Rods

Gypsum ceiling suspension rods have a simple structure, with a cylindrical threaded rod according to standard metric thread systems, with both ends identical.

Common Technical Specifications

  • Materials: Steel, stainless steel
  • Surface treatment: Electroplated zinc, hot-dip galvanization.
  • Thread diameter: M6, M8, M10, M12, M14, M16, M18, M20
  • Thread pitch: 1.0 – 2.5 mm
  • Length: 1-3m

Common sizes of threaded rods used for gypsum ceiling installation are M6/M8/M10/M12. Depending on the different load-bearing requirements, contractors will choose the appropriate type of suspension rod.

Applicable in various harsh environments, including prolonged exposure to damp and humid conditions

Why Use Threaded Rods in Gypsum Ceiling Construction

Expansion anchors: Fix the threaded rods to the ceiling. One end of the expansion anchor contains threads to connect with the suspension rod, while the other end lacks threads to be fastened to the ceiling. During construction, it is necessary to fix the expansion anchor to the ceiling first, then twist the suspension rod with the corresponding thread size. This ensures a secure hanging system, preventing thread pitch breakage and avoiding damage to the ceiling.

Nut and washer: Accessories to tighten the threaded rod with the expansion anchor, clip strut channels, or with some other accessories. Ensure that the suspension rod is securely connected to the ceiling, increasing load-bearing capacity during construction and use of gypsum ceilings.

Threaded rod couplings, threaded rod boxes: Details for connecting two threaded rods with the same outer diameter, allowing adjustment of the length of the hanging system, increasing flexibility during installation or maintenance of the hanging system.
