This article is a ceiling installation and mounting guide for the Celona AP12.

Components

Each Celona AP12 unit is shipped with an AP12 Ceiling Mount Kit, which consists of two (2) components:

  • ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit - in a plastic bag within the box side compartment

  • AP mount portion of the AP12 rail kit - installed on back/bottom of the AP12 unit from the factory

Supported Ceiling Rail Types

The AP12 Ceiling Mount Kit supports the thin, flat ceiling rail types (such as the first 2 in the following picture - 9/16" and 15/16" width flat rails). The AP12 Ceiling Mount Kit does not support rails with any slotted rails with vertically thick rails (such as the bottom 2 in following picture).

Install the ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit

For 15/16" wide, flat ceiling rails, install the ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit, using the longer portion of the rectangle - the short portion may be difficult to secure.

Insert the ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit diagonally to be able to fit underneath the slots. You will also need to push into tabs to fit the ceiling rail into the slots.

Once lined up with the slots, twist the ceiling mount portion to center the rail onto the ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit.

For 9/16" wide, flat ceiling rails, you can mount using either the long or wide portion of the ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit.

Slide the AP mount portion of the AP12 rail kit to the ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit

With the ceiling mount portion of the AP12 rail kit installed, your AP12 unit should have the AP mount portion of the AP12 rail kit already installed onto the AP. Note the 2 steel tab stops at the bottom of the ceiling portion - the AP12 unit will slide onto the 2 rails on the opposite side. Note the metal tab on the AP portion - the AP will slide onto the ceiling portion on the opposite side.

You may have to wiggle the AP or use a long, flat object to push into the tabs as you slide the two portions of the rail kit together.
