Drywall Ceiling Transition to Drywall (DCTD)

Trim Purpose

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

Flannery’s Drywall Ceiling Transition to Drywall (DCTD) trim allows for the transition from a suspended drywall ceiling plane to an upper or lower ceiling plane that also utilizes drywall. The Drywall Ceiling Transition to Drywall comes as a three-piece trim where two Drywall Ceiling Trim Adapters (DCT) are hooked to a standard Ceiling Cloud Transition (ACCT) trim in order to receive a layer of gypsum board on both ceiling planes. A Drywall Ceiling Trim Adapter is hooked to both the upper and lower legs of the Transition trim. Each transition trim comes with attachment clips and splices to ease its integration into the suspended ceiling system.

Installation Details

Connect the Acoustical Ceiling Cloud Transition (ACCT) 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 Cloud Edge trim and tighten the lock screw. Then attach the Ceiling Grid Trim Clip to the acoustical ceiling grid.

Repeat these steps again when attaching the lower half of the Acoustical Ceiling Cloud Transition trim to the other level of acoustical ceiling grid. Once the Cloud Transition is attached to both suspended ceiling grids, hook the Drywall Ceiling Trim Adapter (DCT) to the upper or lower leg on the Cloud Transition trim based on which ceiling plane will have gypsum board attached to it.

Insert the drywall in behind the Drywall Ceiling Trim Adapter’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. 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.

Ceiling Cloud Splices

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 prefabricated Inside and Outside Corners for intricate ceiling designs that utilize the Drywall Ceiling Transition to Drywall trim. Prefabricated 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. The corners are painted to match the straight pieces of Drywall Ceiling Transition to Drywall trim for a perfect cloud aesthetic. Each Factory Corner comes with two Ceiling Grid Clips and two Trim Splices to assist the installer.
