Individual CoolZone cassettes weigh 9Kg, significantly more than standard metal ceiling tiles, and care should be taken during installation.
Due to this weight, special considerations need to be made when considering the grid system.
For new CoolZone installations, Armstrong Prelude 15mm or Prelude 24mm exposed grid systems installation is recommended with main runners at 600mm centres and with hangers at 1000mm along the main runners. The first hangers should be within 450mm of the perimeter trim. This will maintain Class 1 deflection as per EN 13964:2004+A1:2006.
For refurbishment installations, please contact us for specific detailed loading calculations.
As the the CoolZone cassettes are formed from two Armstrong Metal tiles, one with an 8mm return and a one with a 16mm return, the tiles are reversible and can be installed with either the 8mm or the 16mm return visible.
Armstrong CoolZone cassettes are re-locatable and can be easily relocated within a space, supplemented with additional cassettes, or moved to another room in the building as required by the cooling loads. Care must be exercised when moving CoolZone cassettes due to their heavier weight and consideration must be given to the grid support if moving CoolZone cassettes into new areas.
Armstrong CoolZone cassettes should not be cut. Perimeter tiles and tiles required to be cut for service elements should be standard ceiling tiles.
Armstrong CoolZone cassettes require no more maintenance than a standard metal ceiling tile and are washable with a sponge dampened in water containing mild soap or diluted detergent. Abrasive cleaning agents should not be used.
