PortaFab offers multiple roof and ceiling options to meet the specific needs of virtually any application. From basic systems that provide a clean, cost-effective solution to more functional load-bearing, cleanroom and structural systems, our team can outfit your space with the best option for your needs.

 

Steel Roof with Ceiling Grid

Most single-story offices and buildings are outfitted with 22 gauge ribbed steel roof - 1-1/2" deep, painted and cut to length. This "dust cover" is supported by the framing system to provide a clean, professional appearance.

This steel roof supports a pre-painted, metal grid ceiling system that hangs approximately 6" from the "dust cover" to provide a plenum for electrical wiring and light fixtures.  The grid accommodates standard 2' x 4' lay-in, acoustical ceiling tiles made from class A non-combustible white fissured mineral board, but custom ceiling tiles can be utilized as well.
