When specifiers began voicing their frustration with a lack choice of compliant ceiling brackets, Studco’s innovation team immediately set to work.

Market feedback told us that the industry wanted five key elements in the new ceiling suspension bracket:

  1. Can withstand higher pressures and loads.
  2. Is suitable for use in seismic applications.
  3. Can be used with ETA-approved seismic anchors.
  4. Allows for minimum ceiling cavity height.
  5. Is compliant with the updated AS 2785:2020 ceiling standard.

Introducing the M45

The result is the new Studco® M45 rod suspension bracket. Only 25mm high and made from heavier steel than similar brackets, the M45 is a versatile, heavy-duty all-rounder. It can be used with 8mm diameter seismic anchors and can be used in any suspended concealed ceiling systems as referenced in AS 2785:2020, including seismic ceilings, ceiling with heavy feature linings and rooms with high internal design pressure. Now available through Studco and authorized distributors.
