Author Topic: Any products for lowering a channel ceiling well below the structure joists?  (Read 2903 times)

Are there any rsic clips or other products that are made for extreme offsets between the joists and new desired channel ceiling?

I have a room in an OLD house that has pretty severe settling issues. It's not moving any more but the ceiling of this room is anything but level.

I entertained leveling this out with framing at one time, now I see however that soundproofing this and using a new channel ceiling would actually be easier than framing and shimming this thing out are only 4-5 clip points on a 13 ft wide ceiling, but the issue is that at some point I'm going to be 4-6 inches off the joists in order to level down to the lowest point. It's a good thing they are almost 10ft ceilings to begin with....

I have seen some offset rsic clips but don't know if these are meant for this kind of applicaiton or not.

Anybody know what the maximum offset is with clip products? I have the standard RSIC but am looking for something with more "reach"

If I pursue this combination soundproofing and leveling, I'll probably need something that can attach to the joist but allow the channel and clip to be at least 4 and possibly 6 inches below that to bring the current uneven ceiling down to match the lowest settled point.
