|Where possible SAS endeavour to offer added value options. In addition to prefabricating apertures for M&E services, SAS are able to provide an off‑site prefabrication service.
M&E services, such as luminaires and air diffusers, can be factory fitted off-site. Installing these services in a factory environment ensures correct fitting without the risk of damage caused to either the ceiling tile or service.
The benefits of prefabrication are:
Installation Time: a general suspended ceiling would have the aperture tiles delivered, the services would be fitted and connected, then the ‘field' tiles are delivered and fitted. With pre-installed services installation time can be significantly reduced.
Cost: time to install services on-site allowing for wastage due to site damage adds cost to a project. Delivering the service already in the tile, ready for installation, can provide a more cost‑effective solution.
ISMs (Integrated Service Modules) are rafts and modules that contain either active or passive Chilled Beams. They are generally manufactured and tested off-site before they are delivered and installed on site.
