Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0940515A1] The ceiling consists of a series of metal profiles, each with a flat base (14) and front (16) and rear (15) vertical edges. The front edge of each profile includes a horizontal strip (17) lying parallel to the base and turned outwards. The rear edge of each profile apart from the first has two vertical (15, 20) and two horizontal (18, 19) sections which form a slot to receive the horizontal strip (17) on the preceding profile edge.
