Seismic and Fire-Rated Grid Systems
From CertainTeedCertainTeed Ceilings strengthens its position as a single source for acoustical ceiling solutions with the introduction of two new code-compliant grid systems: SeismicSecure™ and FireSecure™. CertainTeed Ceilings is now the only manufacturer with a 2-hour fire-rated roof ceiling assembly that does not include a layer of fire-rated gypsum boards. The new SeismicSecure and FireSecure grid systems complement the company’s catalog of high-performance ceiling products by simplifying installation and ensuring compliance in various types of projects.
The FireSecure system, available in a 15/16" grid face, has undergone rigorous testing for fire rating under ASTEM E119 and is suited for both UL and ULC fire-rated designs.
The SeismicSecure suspension system has been recognized by ICC-ES as a code-compliant solution in areas where building codes mandate seismic compliance. Featuring the new CertainTeed Seismic Perimeter Clip, the system provides an evidence-supported alternative to International Building Code requirements, allowing 2 fixed walls instead of a typical floating ceiling. This speeds up installation and makes it easier to square the system.
