Perimeter C-Channel can be fixed to the top plate with the longer leg at the bottom so that the end of the Ceiling Batten can slot in to the Perimeter C-Channel. Batten Clips are to be fixed to the side of the truss or ceiling joist. Initially use the central fixing slot so that the clip can be adjusted up or down to achieve a level ceiling line.
