Tee Runner is mainly used in construction most especially in ceiling works as the primary support for suspended ceiling in either acoustic type of board or wood board. Major tees, which span the length of the room and are suspended from the joists by wire hangers, provide the main support for the ceiling system. The supports that join the main tees in a grid arrangement to accept the ceiling panels are called cross tees.
Tee Runners are also called the Main Runner which is typically a 3.6m length in a shape of ‘T’ which can be used to suspend ceilings with the help of wires and hooks. The major support for the suspended ceiling is provided by the Main Runner, also known as the Main Tee Bar or Primary Channel. It is normally a 3.6m length of ‘T’ shape grid. Through the use of suspension wire and some specialized fasteners, the Main Runner is held in place from the top fix (or ceiling above).
