Data Center Structural Ceiling

Tate Duo

Superior Structural Grid System

The patent pending Tate Duo Structural Ceiling system offers a more robust aluminum extrusion for spanning larger distances between connections to the building structure. Spans up to 8’ are possible allowing for more flexibility and few connection points to the building structure.

Tate Duo also features a two-layer continuously threaded slot on the underside of the extrusion so that multiple threaded rod diameters may be use for hanging different equipment within a building.

Replacing custom-built, on-site structural support systems, such as strut, with Tate Duo offers the most flexible solution for future configuration changes of any pre-designed ceiling solution.
