WoodWorks® Linear ceilings consist of unperforated nominal 4-1/2" wide x 8' long or 6" wide by 8' long wood plank modules that are designed to install on Linear Carriers with factory-applied clips. Each type of linear plank module incorporates a 3/4" reveal between planks that is covered by black fleece applied to the back side of the planks at the top of the reveal. The linear wood planks are not accessible after installation.
All veneered linear planks are constructed of the same substrate as 24" x 24" WoodWorks Tegular and Vector® panels; namely, fire retardant particle board with face-cut veneers and a semi-gloss coating. The exposed edges along the length of the planks are edge banded with a similar finish as the face, and the ends of the planks are unfinished. Edge banded ends are available upon request. FSC®-certified options are available (SW-C0C -003601).
All solid linear planks are constructed of solid poplar yellow or hybrid.
Storage and Handling
All ceiling components should be stored in a dry interior location and shall remain in the original packaging prior to installation to avoid damage. The materials shall be stored off the floor in a flat, level condition. Do not store in unconditioned spaces with humidity greater than 55% or lower than 25%, or with temperatures above 86°F or lower than 50°F. Use proper care when handling to avoid damage or soiling.
CAUTION: Use proper care and caution when handling suspension systems due to the sharp edges on all exposed clips.
Building areas that will receive ceiling planks shall be free of construction dust and debris. Installation of the products shall be carried out where the temperature is between 50°F and 86°F and relative humidity levels maintained between 25% RH and 55% RH. These temperature and humidity conditions must be met throughout the lifetime of the ceiling.
Real wood and wood composite products are natural building materials and they will react to changes in humidity. (Wood tends to contract with lower humidity and expand with higher humidity.) Because the planks are butted together end-to-end, installations are required to account for 1/4" of movement for every 8' of run in the plank length direction.
- Runs up to 24' can account for this movement at the perimeters. Available molding includes 1-1/2" Angle Molding (item 7805) and 2" Shadow Molding (item 7823).
- Runs greater than 24' must account for movement by using expansion joints so there are no runs of plank longer than 24'. See section 5.11 for additional details on expansion joints.
Wood may also have a tendency to warp, twist, or bow, due to the natural stresses in the components and these humidity changes. Be aware of these natural tendencies when evaluating the products.
It is also necessary for the area to be enclosed and for the HVAC systems to be functioning and in continuous operations. All wet work (plastering, concrete, etc.) must be complete and dry. These products cannot be used in exterior applications.
To ensure that the ceiling planks have stabilized to the current building conditions, prior to their installation, the planks must be placed in an environmentally stable building location for a minimum of 72 hours.
WoodWorks Linear planks are available with real wood Natural Variations™ veneers, Constants™ veneers, or rapidly renewable Bamboo veneers. Nine standard veneer options are available. Natural variations in color and grain are characteristic of wood products. To maximize visual consistency, planks should be unpacked and examined collectively to determine the most desirable arrangement for installation. Consult the Hardwood Plywood and Veneer Association (HPVA) for additional information on veneers.
WoodWorks Linear planks are also available in solid wood colors: Grille White, Grille Light Cherry, Grille Dark Cherry, and Grille Walnut
