Switch, duplex, and air conditioner outlets are provided in accordance with the standard layout. Lighting fixtures are 2' x 4' troffer lay-ins with 160 watt bulbs and acrylic lenses. A circuit breaker panel with breakers is sized to meet the building's requirements. Wiring or conduit are generally provided by others unless modular wiring is needed. Low-voltage outlets for computers, telephones, and intercoms are also available.
For most applications, self-contained HVAC wall units plug into adjacent dedicated outlets. For larger projects, extra plenum space for central air duct work can also be provided.
Yes. A wide variety of panels for noise and environmental control and added durability are available depending on your needs.
A finished floor is not integral to the structure of the modular buildings, but many floor options are available and can be installed at any time. Two-story structures generally use vinyl tile as the standard finished flooring for the upper level, but carpet can also be installed.
Vinyl-covered panels come in beige, gray, or white. Painted steel or gypsum can be painted any color. Steel wall systems are painted to match the panels, and aluminum wall systems are all satin anodized.
Different jurisdictions have different requirements with regard to code compliance and enforcement. If a permit is required, stamped engineered drawings can be provided.
Approval drawings are sent after a purchase order is received, which generally takes a few days. After the drawings are approved, the lead time is typically 3-5 weeks.
A knocked-down project is packed around the size of the panels, so an 8 foot wall room would arrive in an enclosed trailer on 4x8 skids and a 9 foot tall on 4x9 skids, etc. A fork truck with 3,000 lbs capacity and extended forks is required. Factory-assembled booths ship pre-assembled on a steel base with fork pockets so they can be forklifted into place. All products ship CLASS 70.
