 Specs, MSDS, and LEED Information for Flannery Trims & Products

Flannery’s Drywall Ceiling Cloud Edge (DCCE) Trim is an extruded aluminum trim that attaches to suspended drywall ceiling track to create a solid edge for a suspended drywall ceiling. The Drywall Ceiling Cloud Edge trim reduces material and labor costs by eliminating the need for attaching additional drywall and cornerbeads to finish the edges of a suspended drywall ceiling. Flannery’s Drywall Ceiling Cloud Edge trim comes in a variety of sizes to allow for multiple design effects. The edge trim also comes with attachment clips and splices to ease its integration into the suspended drywall ceiling grid.

Installation Details

Connect Drywall Ceiling Cloud Edge trims 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 Cloud Edge trim and tighten the lock screw. Then attach the Ceiling Grid Trim Clip to the suspended drywall ceiling grid. Insert the drywall in behind the Drywall Ceiling Cloud Trim’s thinning “mud” flange when attaching it to the suspended drywall ceiling grid. Insert a fastener through the trim’s flange, drywall edge and into the grid system. Then apply compound joint over the flange and feather accordingly.

Use the included Ceiling Cloud Trim Splices to connect one piece of trim to the next for level and clean butt joints. All Cloud 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.

Factory Corners

Flannery offers pre-fabricated Inside and Outside Corners for intricate ceiling designs that utilize the Drywall Ceiling Cloud 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.
