Design & Function

The design flexibility of Hartleif metal ceiling systems enables the designer, even in the early planning stage, to incorporate his functional requirements and adapt them one to another. Individual architectural design requirements and optimum technical performance can be satisfied by the unique adaptability of Hartleif systems.

Materials and Fixing

Hartleif metal pan systems are lightweight suspended ceilings in accordance with DIN 18168. They can be installed quickly and cleanly. According to individual requirements, tiles or panels can be supplied in galvanized steel or aluminium. High grade powder-coating is factory applied by the electrostatic process to ensure corrosion-protected visible surfaces. Different colour configurations for special effects including pre-coloured aluminium and high-grade steel are available.

Design and Function


Hartleif metal ceilings are used extensively in airports, post offices, administration buildings, science-centers, universities, schools, hospitals, sport-halls, department stores, offices, railway stations, pharmacy companies ( clean-room ceilings ), and also in exterior walkways, passages and pedestrian tunnels.

Integration and Mobility

Hartleif metal ceiling can be combined with other construction elements or provide in itself a performance-activated unit. Each individual ceiling panel can be removed from the sub-structure without the use of tools, thus providing overall access to the ceiling void. This facility means that service installations of all kinds are accessible.

Sound Absorption and
Air-borne Sound Insulation

Hartleif metal pan ceilings are highly effective sound- absorption elements. Standard tiles and purpose made special panels have mineral fibre sound-absorbent pads laid into the back of the pan or acoustic fleece glued into the tile.
