Light metal soffit forclean

LIGHT METAL SOFFIT FORCLEAN

The Light metal soffit is a lowered ceiling structure with a hidden suspension system, designated in particular to close cleanrooms, facilitating certain pressures.

The soffit is used in pharmaceutical, electrical, foodstuff, chemical, and engineering industry premises, as well as in civil engineering. It is suitable for hospitals and laboratories.

The soffit structure may be fitted with light fittings, glazed and service panels, filtration extenders, and various HVAC elements.

STANDARD PANEL

  • standard basic module
  • Standard dimensions 625x625mm
  • Non-standard dimensions 600x600,1250x625, 1200x620mm
  • Face side surface

- standard treatment by the RAL 9010 colour

- non-standard treatment according to the RAL colour list, or with the AISI 304 design, FIN8 grind

  • Panel structure

- metal panels are fixed by snapping into the snap type panel

GLAZED PANEL

The GLAZED PANEL facilitates the room lighting by daylight or by a light fitting placed above the soffit. It consists of a snap-type panel with an opening and of a bottom panel with prismatic glass, type BARLO SAN.

Above the panel a light fitting may be used with the min. shielding IP20 and max. dimensions 600x600mm.

Apart from screws, the bottom panel is secured by two springs against fall-out. Standard dimensions of the glazed panel are 625x625mm.

SERVICE PANEL

The SERVICE PANEL

  • enables rapid access to the space above the soffit, when servicing is needed. It consists of a snap-type panel with an opening, and of a bottom panel. Apart from screws, the bottom panel is secured by two springs against fall-out. Standard dimensions of the service panel are 625x625mm.
  • BEARING PROFILES (length 3m - extension by means of links) are suspended on threaded rods, M6 (1000mm; 2000mm

- extension by means of links) anchored to a construction ceiling or on an auxiliary structure

  • Threaded rods span - 1200 mm (max. 1500mm)
  • Bearing profiles span - 1000 mm (max. 2000mm)
  • SNAP-TYPE PROFILES (length 3m - extension by means of links) they are suspended under the bearing profiles by means of

SNAP-TYPE PROFILE TRUSSES -

- short truss: 125mm from the soffit level

- long truss: 175mm from the soffit level

The snap-type profile trusses are secured against fall off due to an excessive overpressure under the soffit.

  • THE SNAP-TYPE PROFILES are fitted with individual standardised, glazed, service, or offset panels by their “snapping-in”.

The FORCLEAN - type light metal soffit is fully compatible with HVAC EXTENDERS, PUROFIL FILTRATION EXTENDERS, FORCLEAN LIGHT SNAP-TYPE LIGHT FITTINGS.

ANCHORING AND INSTALLATION

Minimum installation height

  • see the table TECHNICAL DATA Anchoring
  • into concrete ceiling steel anchor, M6 with min. bearing capacity 0.2 kN/pc
  • into a steal structure metal truss clamps, M6

MAINTENANCE

  • Painted surfaces to be cleaned by non-abrasive disinfecting cleaning agents based on alcohol
  • Stainless surfaces to be cleaned by nonabrasive disinfecting cleaning agents based on alcohol, or by slightly abrasive disinfecting cleaning agents based on butyl alcohol (only for the ground/matt surface, always in the direction of the grind) based on butyl alcohol

(stains, fingerprints), or based on acids where heavier pollution occurs. Concentration to be selected in relation to the pollution extent

  • Glass surfaces to be wiped by a fine fabric combined with cleaning agents based on alcohol.
