The EC3 is a single-sided tilting metal panel that pivots on the pivot edge profile and remains suspended in the open position. It leaves the plenum completely free of access. This facilitates access to technical networks and makes maintenance easier.
Special trays adapt to the shape of corridors and changes in direction. Luminaires or lighting strips can be integrated into the edge profiles.
The EC3 panel can also be used in office ceilings, where it can be installed as a shadow gap, or as an opening panel, using specific double hook profiles depending on the desired shadow gap.


Circulation ceilings for hospitals, office buildings, shopping centers…
