I have to install 4' x 8' laminated 3/4 MDF panels to create a ceiling in a commercial store. It is the general contractor’s responsibility to supply/install any preparation needed for me to install my panels? My original idea was for him to provide me with a plywood ceiling, and then use some sort of Z clips to install my panels.
After researching for what Z clips to use all are spec’d out for wall installations and I'm becoming concerned with the strength of the z clip being used for a ceiling installation. I was hoping someone here might have some experience with a similar situation and might have some suggestions as to what hardware to use and or other possible ways to install these panels.

Can you get someone up in the ceiling to screw it from above?
