Client news: Chicago Metallic Corporation’s Metaline security ceiling systems restrict unauthorized access, provide clean appearance
Chicago Metallic® Corporation offers Metaline™ metal panel security ceilings for supervised dayrooms, corridors and other monitored areas in correctional facilities, as well as probation, addiction recovery and counseling centers. These high-performance metal panels and suspension systems are suitable for both interior applications and exterior soffits in light- to medium-security settings that require restricted access to the ceiling plenum.
Metaline security ceiling systems consist of aluminum panels that lock under the bulb of heavy-duty, galvanized steel, suspension grid. The tee-based system ensures module alignment and easily accommodates light fixtures, HVAC equipment and access doors for a continuous, clean look. In addition to access control, the panels provide noise control. They are available as perforated for acoustical performance when an acoustical batt is installed above them.
The metal used in the Metaline ceiling system contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which mitigates mold and microbial growth. Further enhancing the environmental attributes, the metal may be specified with up to 100% post-consumer recycled content and is 100% locally recyclable. The use of environmentally responsible building materials is a critical component of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® certification process.
Contributing to its durability and low maintenance, Metaline panels feature a washable, no-VOC, baked enamel finish. These economical panels are finished in standard white and sized at 1-by-2, 2-by-2 and 2-by-4 feet for smooth installation into the 15/16-inch Metaline grid system. Chicago Metallic Corporation supports its Metaline metal panel security ceiling systems with a 20-year limited warranty.
