Nicos Group Ceilings: Different options for different needs
December 9, 2020
The cleanroom system by Nicos Group is a truly modular product: not just because the wall partitions come in prefabricated panels, but also because of the possibility of integrating different component into the same system.
One of these components is the ceiling: Nicos Group offers different ceiling types, and they all can be integrated with any of the wall panel types we offer.
Our drop ceilings are divided in two main categories:
- Seamless hard ceiling
- T-grid ceiling with tiles
Vertical walls can support the ceiling, for spans equal or less than 12’.
When the span is over 12’, both ceiling types need to be supported by the structure above: building’s roof, mezzanine, supporting steel structure etc.
Seamless hard ceiling
Our seamless hard ceiling is built using the same panels that we use for our wall partitions. Therefore, we can provide this ceiling with any of the skin types available for the wall partitions (i.e., HPL, UPVC, Powder Coated Steel etc.). This hard ceiling is completely walkable (Live load of 350 lbs per 10 sq. ft. at all points across the ceiling area: two men for maintenance activities) and is particularly suitable for situations where air tightness in the room is a key concern.
T-Grid Ceiling with tiles
Whenever the driving factor in the ceiling choice is flexibility, a T-grid system is the ideal choice:
- Heavy duty grid, in either powder coated or anodized aluminum.
- Standard 2’x4’ or 2’x2’ grid pattern (less design effort upfront)
- Wide selection of ceiling tiles
- Flexibility in the position or number of Hepa filters and Light Fixtures
- If paired with a walk-on tile, the whole ceiling can be considered as walkable.
Nicos Group ceilings can be compliant with seismic requirements, upon request.
