Ceiling Clips, Channel and Drywall...How does it all go together?
So I'm mapping out my clips and channel for a decoupled ceiling and I'll having trouble picturing how 2 layers of 5/8 drywall will be secured to the channel.
For the first layer, if I space the channel every 2 feet and lay the drywall parallel to the channel, I can theoretically reach 3 channels with each piece of drywall. But in practice it looks like I'll be catching only 2, and worst case there will be about 1' - 8" or so of unsupported drywall.
I've read that the second layer will somehow take care of this, but how?
Secondly, what if the second layer has a similar overhang (understanding that the first layer will not have the same overhang in the same place)?
I might try to draw up a diagram to better explain if this doesn't make sense.
