Lag Poles

Lag poles are used in construction to reach the interior overhead to install attachment hardware for suspending various components.  In the context of suspended ceilings, they play a specific role.

Uses of Lag Poles in Suspended Ceilings:

  1. Securing Suspension Wires:

    • Installation of Hanger Wires: Lag poles are used to secure hanger wires to the structural ceiling. The hanger wires are essential for suspending the ceiling grid system. The lag pole is used to reach into the ceiling joists or other structural elements and install a secure attachment point for the wires.
    • Support and Stability: By securing the hanger wires, lag poles help ensure that the ceiling grid system remains stable and level, supporting the weight of the ceiling tiles and other fixtures.
