Suspended Ceilings | Exposed | Lay In


SAS330 forms part of our premium offering with a host of value-added design elements.

A profile suspended ceiling, the system is available in a tartan or linear grid form, suitable for any building module. Ceiling tiles can be of any shape, in up to 3m lengths and available in a variety of finishes.

The design flexibility of SAS330 allows for complete void access, total service integration and also offers lighting integration. Signage and partitioning can be seamlessly integrated via the M6 threaded Omega C-Profile. Alternatively, we offer a flush, plain C-Profile for a clean, purist aesthetic. Either profile has the option of a gasket to aid precision, uniform installation.

System features


SAS330 is a suspended metal ceiling system with lay-in tiles and profile suspension grid.

  • Unprecedented range of tile sizes to suit any building module
  • Flexible layouts for relocation of partitions (Omega C-Profile)
  • Optional hinge down mechanisms
  • Profile suspension grid (SAS C-Profile, SAS Narrow C-Profile, or SAS Omega C-Profile suspension method)
  • Linear (SAS330L) and Tartan (SAS330T) grid options
  • Continuous lighting and return air C-Profile integration
  • Optional Radiant Chilled Ceiling solution (SAS330C)
  • Suitable for corridor applications
  • Minimum 25 year product life expectancy


SAS330 offers the specifier a number of safe and robust options for void access. This is particularly important when considering larger panel sizes, lights and other integrated services.

Touch Latch and Pivot Pin

This mechanism allows access by simply pushing the panel up to release. If necessary, a fixed bolt can be unscrewed to completely remove the tile.

Touch Latch and Pivot

Flying Arm

This is a hook-over bracket supplied fixed to the upstand of the panel. Access is obtained by pushing up the opposite end of the panel and sliding back. This reveals the flange which can then be lowered to a vertical position (lift & tilt).

Flying Arm mechanism

Hinge Notch

This feature allows tiles to be hung vertically from C-Profiles which provides unobstructed ceiling void access. Complete panel runs can be hung together during maintenance without causing damage to the tile.

Grid System

  • C-Profile suspension (flush / plain)
  • Omega C-Profile (with quirk for partitioning and signage integration)

System Weight

  • Linear grid – typically no greater than 14 Kg/m2
  • Tartan grid – typically no greater than 15 Kg/m2


Standard Module Sizes (mm)

SAS330 metal ceiling tiles can be manufactured in mm increments to suit any building module. The specifier should note that maximum panel sizes are limited by industry tolerance guidelines.

Large format tiles – any tile greater than 750 mm2 is considered large format. To remain within industry tolerances, large format tiles are typically no larger than 1200 mm2.

Note: Tile sizes greater than 1200 mm2 are technically possible, but may need additional manufacturing processes to remain within tolerances. Please contact our technical services team for guidance.


Standard Finish

  • Coating – Polyester powder coat
  • Colour – RAL 9010 (Pure White)

Special & Non-standard Finishes

  • Available in full range of standard RAL colours
  • Anti-Microbial Coating

Other specialist powder coat finishes are available on request. For more information on non-standard finishes, please contact our technical services team.


Standard Tile Shape

  • Square
  • Rectangle

Other tile shapes are available on request, although involve a significantly higher level of manufacturing complexity. Please contact our technical department for further information.



  • SAS330 tiles can be supplied with any standard SAS perforation pattern.


Acoustic Treatment

  • Acoustic pad as standard

(16mm deep, 80Kg density mineral-wool pad with black tissue face, foil back and sides).

Other acoustic treatments are available, depending on project requirement. Please contact our technical department for more information.



Ceiling tiles and C-Profiles can be formed with apertures during manufacturing for integration with lights and other services. SAS330 panels may require stiffeners to support centrally mounted lighting.

Lighting and other mechanical and electrical services can add significant loads to a ceiling. Loads applied to SAS330 ceiling tiles must not exceed 7 Kg.  For loads greater than 7 Kg, we would recommend using independent suspension.

If you have a concern over loads, please contact our technical team for advice.


Additional System Information

C Profile Options for Partitoning Integration

Cross section of Omega C Profile
Omega C Profile

Available in a range of widths, SAS International’s C Profiles are designed to integrate metal ceilings with partitioning systems.

The Omega C-Profile features a continuous thread-form that allows the easy location and relocation of partitioning. By means of an M6 bolt, partitioning can be relocated without causing damage to the ceiling.

An optional foam gasket features a brush seal strip. This provides a tight seal between profile and tile, (supplied loose for on-site installation).

By introducing C-Profile cross noggins at modular centres, a two-dimensional tartan grid can be achieved.

Extruded Aluminium Profiles

Narrow C Profile Extrusions

A range of narrower, aluminium extruded C-Profile and Omega C-Profiles are available to meet design requirements.

The profiles can be suspended from either an Emac Channel or direct from the soffit.

Mock Crossing Boxes

Isometric Drawing of Mock Crossing Box

SAS330 can replicate SAS335 crossing boxes by pressing mock crossing boxes into the C-Profile. The use of C-Profiles provides a more rigid ceiling structure than traditional crossing boxes.
