S22 clip-in security system

OWAtecta S22 security is a metal clip-in, swing down, suspended ceiling system. It includes 600 x 600 mm tile modules, concealed grid, security clip and a perimeter trim.

S22 security utilises our 24 mm hook tee grid, suspended from the soffit, a clip-in profile and a C-channel trim fixed to the wall. A retaining clip secures the tiles from above, therefore incorporate a lockable access panel to completely secure the ceiling. Ideal for prisons, detention centres or education.

The metal clip-in tiles are available with a bevelled edge. Also, we can manufacture them with a plain or perforated surface. The perforated tiles come with a black acoustic fleece backing as standard, offering up to class C sound absorption. However, if you require a higher acoustic value, we can supply an additional acoustic pad to achieve class A absorption.

S22 security metal clip-in tiles are easy to install and can hinge down by removing the retaining clip from above. A metal tile is more durable than a mineral tile, therefore they will last longer when handled more frequently. An installer can cut the tiles onsite to suit the room shape using an appropriate tool. A wall spring clip holds the perimeter tiles in place within the C-channel.
