Iso Flex-Grid Structural Ceiling System
The complete solution
The Iso Flex-Grid is an engineered structural ceiling that acts as both a dropped return air ceiling plenum, as well as a support grid, providing a cost effective solution for use in data centres, clean rooms, Hospitals, labs, Retail and other environments.
Continous threaded slot to maximize flexibility
The Iso Flex-Grid system uses high-grade aluminium extrusions with a continues M10 threaded slot along the entire underside of the grid. The ceiling grid is assembled using 2, 3 and 4 way high strength die-cast connectors. The design allows for varying sized grids to be built, offering quick attachment both below and above the grid for services such as power distribution and communications trays, electrical busway systems, fibre runways, cable ladders, caging & containment products.
The ceiling grid that keeps on saving
Easy to fit ceiling tiles can be supplied in a variety of different materials, sizes, colours and brands. With the ceiling tiles in place you can create a hot return air plenum for use in combination with a contained hot aisle, individual cabinet chimney systems or contained cold aisles. The ceiling tiles can be secured to the grid if preferred with Bergvik's patented clip.
As with the Iso Floor system, the Iso Flex-Grid can easily be adapted to your equipment layout for optimal access in all aisles. Ongoing changes can also be supported allowing you to continue to take advantage of its flexibility for years to come. Auto Cad layout or optional Revit models can be provided in support of this offering.
With all the equipment supported directly either below or above the Iso Flex-Grid, no struts or other supports will need to penetrate the ceiling tiles, reducing air leakage to a minimum.

Features & Benefits
Serves the dual pupose of being both a load-bearing grid combined with a drop-down ceiling
Extremely cost effective for future Server Rack expansions due to it's flexible design. Does not require a Server Rack layout and dimensions before a client moves in.
Easy to attach hot/cold aisle containment and chimney systems anywhere to simplify the facility planning.
Allows for countless overhead suspension points in all directions. Using a Unistrut suspension system for support of all overhead installations needs to be fully planned beforehand, and the standard ceiling installed afterwords struggle to look good and function properly
Provides less facility disruptions and ceiling damage when upgrades for equipment changes are done.
Provides a low maintenance cost, since there will be no need for additional suspension points and replacement of ceiling components.
Offers a patent pending ceiling panel hold down clip that allows individual ceiling panels to be removed or locked down at any location. This is a major feature when the static pressure below the ceiling grid is substantially higher. No other system can offer this flexibility!
