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. (Larger sizes can be difficult to install and keep in flat condition. Perforation patterns and lighting conditions can make such panels appear unsightly).
