Acoustical Ceiling Knife Edge Trim (ACKE)
Flannery’s Acoustical Ceiling Knife Edge Trim (ACKE) is an extruded aluminum trim that attaches to suspended ceiling track to create a sharp, sloped edge for an acoustical ceiling. The Knife Edge has a unique design that allows it to terminate a suspended acoustical ceiling without having to use the typical flat or square trim. The Acoustical Ceiling Knife Edge Trim also comes with attachment clips and splices to ease its integration into the suspended ceiling. Like all of our other Strata Ceiling trims, our Knife Edge can be fabricated into corners.
The Acoustical Ceiling Knife Edge (ACKE) Trim is a standard extruded aluminum alloy 6063 T5 and is .095″ thick. Flannery’s Knife Edge Trim comes in 10′ lengths (custom lengths available) and shall have a standard Mill Finish (for field priming and painting) or a factory Kynar White paint unless specified otherwise. Clear Anodized, Chem-film finish, as well as other factory finishes, and custom paint orders are available. View all of our factory finishes and if you still don’t see the one you are looking for, contact us and we can get you what you need. Our Knife Edge trim as well as some of our other “cloud” trims can also be factory fabricated into corners to implement into any of your perimeter ceiling designs.
Connect the Acoustical Ceiling Knife Edge trim to the suspended ceiling grid using the Ceiling Grid Trim Clips included. Rotate the Ceiling Grid Trim Clip into the slots on the back of the Knife Edge trim and tighten the lock screw. Then attach the Ceiling Grid Trim Clip to the acoustical ceiling grid. Use the included Ceiling Cloud Trim Splices to connect one piece of trim to the next for level and clean butt joints. All Knife Edge Trims must be cut accurately and installed with tight, neat joints. Manufacturer recommends that a carbide tip blade along with blade lubricant be used when cutting any aluminum trim.

Flannery offers pre-fabricated Inside and Outside Corners for intricate ceiling designs that utilize the Acoustical Ceiling Knife Edge Trim. Pre-fabricated corners are factory mitered and then welded together to prevent separation during the installation of the edge trim. Factory welded corners come with 8” legs in each direction, however custom leg lengths can be ordered.
