Tate Grid

Aluminium Structural Grid System for Data Centers

Tate Grid is the ideal solution for any 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 Grid can offer many advantages. A structural ceiling allows you to design and specify the support solution in advance and, best of all, it’s less expensive and faster to install.
