# Dropped (Suspended) Ceiling Materials - Metric

Dropped ceiling materials calculator using metric measurements. Results are based on calculations made from measurements and could vary slightly, depending on how you choose to lay out your grid.

### Dropped Ceiling Metric Measurements

**Ceiling length A is the length that runs at a right angle to the joist direction.**

#### The Calculation

The amount of drop of the ceiling. Preset @ 100mmThe length's of main cross bar's and the perimeter trim's can be different.

The main cross bar length it comes in is preset @ 3.6 metres and the perimeter wall angle trim @ 3 metres. Change as needed.

- select ceiling tile size ( either 600mm x 600mm or 600mm x 1200mm)
- enter room length A (the length measured perpendicular to the direction of the joist)
- enter room length B (the length measured along the direction of the joist)

#### Results

- perimeter of the ceiling
- square metres of the ceiling
- number of row's of main cross bars in your ceiling
- number of tiles needed
- perimeter trim lengths needed
- main cross bar lengths needed
- 1200mm cross bars needed
- 600mm cross bars needed
- minimum amount of wire support anchors needed (for supporting the grid)
- amount of tie wire in lineal metres
