Tate’s Structural Ceiling Grid is the ideal solution for any data center application where large heavy items need to be suspended within a building. Replacing custom-built on-site structural support systems such as Unistrut, with Tate’s Structural Ceiling Grid can offer many advantages. A structural data center ceiling allows you to pre-design and specify the support solution in advance and, best of all it’s less expensive and faster to install.
