Tate Grid is the ideal solution for any application where heavy items and services need to be suspended within a data centre.

Replacing custom-built on-site structural support systems with Tate Grid can offer many advantages. A structural data centre ceiling allows you to design and specify the support solution in advance and, best of all it’s less expensive and faster to install.
  • Continuously threaded M10 slot enables services such as cable trays and containment, to be hung directly from the system anywhere throughout the data hall and technical rooms.
  • Pre-engineered factory produced components designed with notched extrusions aid alignment making it quick and easy to install.
  • 1.7kN Point Load & 2.4kN/m2 Uniform Load
  • Suitable for Cloud & Enterprise applications
