They look to be top hat plaster battens. They could be cheaper from plaster suppliers.

As Alan said, it can be called tophat, topspan or ceiling batten. Probably many more names also. And generally it comes in 6m lengths from any good building supplier.

Looks good, nice way of thinking outside the box :)
What do the grommets do? If its for waterproofing is that a bit redundant seeing as pixels and wiring are sealed anyway?

I would imagine it's to stop the pixel rubbing on the metal sheeting and causing issues over time with movement.
