Application

Suitable for a range of internal cleanroom applications in new build and refurbishment projects, including:

  • Pharmaceutical and bio-technology laboratories.
  • Healthcare.
  • Medical research.
  • Advanced technology facilities.

Description

Semi-flush suspended ceiling system using T-Hanger solution for cleanrooms. The modular design allows truly bespoke cleanroom construction, to enable the highest levels of hygiene and contamination safety.

UltraTech systems are composed of high performance insulated panels featuring a flat, non-porous surface to both sides which aids cleaning and offers high levels of resistance to mould, moisture ingress and bacterial growth, ensuring a controlled, sterile environment that minimizes airborne particles and micro-organisms.

Features and benefits:

  • Can accommodate the flush integration of cleanroom fittings such as lighting systems, supply and return air housings, and smaller ceiling mounted services.
  • Designed and classified as ceilings accessible for installation, occasional inspection and maintenance, minor repair only.
  • Ceiling panels are available in a selection of core options.
  • All panels include a nominal gap of 2–4 mm for silicone seal.
  • Compatible with both UltraTech Versatile (semi-flush) and Precision (flush) partition panel systems. A range of co-ordinating single and double doors, windows, light fixtures and accessories is available for a fully integrated, bespoke cleanroom solution - consult manufacturer for details.
  • Fully recyclable at end of life (through conventional shredder plants).
  • Global warming potential (GWP): Low, with zero ozone depletion potential (ODP).

- To note:

  • Not designed for material storage.
  • Heavier building services such as air ducts, HEPA housings, piping and cable trays should not be supported from the ceiling suspension system.
  • The manufacturer recommends that a separate walkway zone should be installed for highly trafficked areas of the walk-on ceiling during and after installation.

Consult manufacturer for further information.

Panel core:

- ECOsafe polyisocyanurate (PIR):

  • Insulation core: Features an environmentally sustainable closed-cell PIR insulation core which is non-deleterious with zero ozone depletion potential (zero ODP).
  • Biological: Resistant to attack from mould, fungi, mildew and vermin. No urea formaldehyde is used in the manufacture of the panels. Panels can incorporate project-specific HYGIENEsafe, wash and clean down facings.
  • Panel joint: Engineered joint which achieves excellent air leakage, thermal and structural performance. The panel side joint can accommodate vapour, hygiene and fire rated seals and can be silicone sealed for regulatory compliance.

- Mineral fibre (MF):

  • Insulation: Features a mineral wool insulation core, 50C and 50F, consisting of vertically-oriented fibres. As a result of this orientation, the panels provide excellent mechanical properties (high tensile and compression strength).
  • Biological: Resistant to attack from mould, fungi, mildew and vermin. No urea formaldehyde is used in the manufacture of the panels. Can incorporate project-specific HYGIENEsafe, wash and clean down facings.
  • Panel joint: Features a symmetric tongue and groove connection with excellent thermal and structural performance.

- QuadCore™:

  • Biological: Normally resistant to attack from mould, fungi, mildew and vermin. No urea formaldehyde is used in the manufacture of the panels. Panels can incorporate project-specific HYGIENEsafe, wash and clean down facings.
  • Panel joint: Engineered joint which achieves excellent air leakage, thermal and structural performance. The panel side joint can accommodate vapour, hygiene and fire rated seals and can be silicone sealed for regulatory compliance.

Applications:

Suitable for a range of internal cleanroom applications in new build and refurbishment projects, including:

  • Pharmaceutical and bio-technology laboratories.
  • Healthcare.
  • Medical research.
  • Advanced technology facilities.

Accreditations:
