2300 Continuous Linear
Budget-friendly system with clean, uninterrupted lines and reveals for acoustics. Fast progressive installation delivered thanks to our Speed-Lock clips.
The 9Wood Continuous Linear style wood ceiling offers an open reveal linear design where the individual wood member is wider than it is deep. The lay-out is built around a 12″ module. Members are installed randomly to create a continuous, random joint appearance. Lengths are random for solid wood or 8′ for veneers. Veneers with matching edge banding come in 4′ and 8′ lengths. Cost budgets are typically the decision driver; both solid lumber and engineered veneers perform well.
The Continuous Linear provides the classic open-reveal continuous linear appearance, creating a monolithic ceiling field. Access can be achieved through strategically located access panels or from room perimeters. Members are clipped to T-Bar main runners progressively.
Continuous Linears must be cared for in a controlled interior environment (RH 25%-55% max; temp. 60°-80°) and installed only after reaching equilibrium moisture content. Should the building fall outside these limits, consult 9Wood for our Wood Ceiling Acclimatization for Professionals handbook.
The Continuous Linear can enhance acoustics via sound absorbing material placed over open reveals within the T-Bar grid. Insulation is typically provided locally.
Individual members and components can be treated with Class I (A) Fire Retardant chemicals (solid wood use FR coatings, veneered particleboard use FR formulas). Particular species or styles have not been tested.
Continuous Linears may qualify toward MR-3, MR-4.1/4.2, MR-5.1/5.2, MR-6, MR-7, IEQ-4.2 or IEQ-4.4. As all products are custom-fabricated, LEED credit opportunities are project by project. Please contact 9Wood for specifics.
The Continuous Linear permits MEP penetrations in the ceiling’s surface. Cut panels may require supplemental reinforcement. Fixtures and diffusers must be independently supported.
Continuous Linear Styles provide seismic code compliance by means of clips with mechanical direct screw attachment to T-Bar grid. Consult local code for any additional requirements or a licensed engineer.
Species & Finishes
9Wood offers both domestic and imported species for the Continuous Linear. Clear, matte sheen finish is standard; custom stain matches are available. For additional information see our species article.
Continuous Linears are directly attached to 15/16″ heavy duty T-Bar main runners. Main runners are typically 2′ on center.
Continuous Linears typically weigh 2-4 pounds per square foot, depending on members per linear foot and species.
