Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

We claim:

1. A suspended island ceiling system comprising:

a panel having a top surface, a bottom surface and an edge extending therebetween, the top surface having an in-board channel extending therefrom in a direction toward the bottom surface of the panel, wherein the channel does not extend to the edge of the panel.

2. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 1, wherein the in-board channel includes a recess portion and a kerfed portion, the recessed portion extends from the top surface of the panel and the kerfed portion of the channel extends from the recessed portion.

3. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 2, wherein the recessed portion extends in a direction toward the bottom surface of the panel.

4. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 3, wherein the kerfed portion extends in a direction substantially perpendicular to the first portion.

5. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 1, further comprising at least one suspension bar, each bar being positioned in the in-board channel.

6. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 5, wherein each suspension bar is mechanically locked at each of its ends.

7. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 5, wherein the suspension bar forms an interlocked continuous suspension bar.

8. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 5, wherein the suspension bar provides support to the panel in both the longitudinal and cross axes of the panel.

9. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 1, wherein the panel is a soft

fiber panel.

10. A ceiling system comprising:

a island ceiling panel having a top surface, a bottom surface and at least one edge extending therebetween, each edge having a kerf being capable of receiving a suspension bar therein; and

a plurality of suspension bars, each suspension bar being contiguous the another suspension bar, wherein one of the plurality of suspension bars is positioned in each kerf of the panel.

11. The ceiling system of claim 10, wherein the plurality of suspension bars provide support to the panel in both the longitudinal and cross axes of the panel.

12. A suspended island ceiling system comprising:

a panel having a top surface, a bottom surface and an edge extending therebetween, the edge including a kerf, the kerf extending along the entire circumference of the edge; and a suspension bar positioned in the kerf, the suspension bar being mechanically attached to the panel.

13. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 12, wherein the suspension bar extends along the entire circumference of the kerf.

14. The suspended island ceiling system of claim 13, wherein the suspension bar conforms substantially to the shape of the edge of the panel.

15. The ceiling system of claim 13, wherein suspension bar provides support to the panel in both the longitudinal and cross axes of the panel.
