System Sizes

  • Tartan System modules:
    Tartan Systems may be provided in a variety of modules up to 60" center to center.
    Modules may be square or rectangular.
  • Exposed grid members and Crossing boxes:
    The elements of the exposed suspension system are available in a variety of widths:
    4", 6", 8", 12".  Any length may be specified up to 12' 0"
  • Panels:
    Panels may be square or rectangular and may fill the Tartan grid opening in a variety of patterns. The largest single square panel offered is 48" x 48" – using a 12" exposed grid member (C-channel) with this size panel will yield a system on a 60" x 60" module.

    Note that large metal panels will inevitably sag. Certain perforations patterns and lighting conditions will render sag very apparent and unsightly. While it may be possible to manufacture panels outside the limitations described here, our experience has shown that such panel sizes cannot be reliably produced and installed in an acceptably flat condition.
