Armstrong Ceiling Solutions has launched a suspension system specifically designed to meet the exacting requirements of data centres.
The new Prelude® 24 Max™ grid provides outstanding load carrying capability and adaptability, with an incredibly efficient method of suspending cable trays, bus bars and other mechanical elements to prevent air leakage through the ceiling tiles.
In an environment where a constant, carefully calibrated temperature is a non-negotiable factor, the engineered system components offer the optimum conditions to stop air leakage which could lead to overheating or spiralling cooling costs.
Traditional methods suspend loads via slotted strut locations or drill holes through ceiling tiles where threaded rods are needed and in doing so increase air leakage and the mix of warm and cold air. However, designing out these details means the hot return air is retained in the plenum space and the cool air below the ceiling.
The new suspension system cans also carry single-point loads up to 110kgs and can be simply reconfigured to meet changing requirements.
Using M10 threaded rod connections and integrated hanging clips, the Prelude 24 Max provides flexible support for cable trays and electrical distribution, with no need for a separate strut channel system being suspended through the ceiling tiles.
Patented load connector clips attach at any point to the face of the suspension system, eradicating unsightly threaded rod connections through the ceiling plane, enhancing access and aesthetics, as well as minimising air infiltration.
The traditional-faced 24mm profile grid lowers materials costs and labour, while still being compatible with many Armstrong board ceiling panels including Ultima+, Clean Room FL acoustic tiles, as well as standard lighting elements.
The pre-engineered suspension system comes with a 30-year system warranty.
