Mandalay Bay masks high ceilings with Magna T-Cell
Convention Center features ROCKFON open plenum systems
Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas is the fifth largest in North America with more than 2 million square feet of meeting and exhibit space across three levels. As part of the facility’s most recent 350,000-square-foot expansion and renovation, ROCKFON Magna T-Cell™ open plenum systems are featured in its high-ceiling meeting rooms and corridors.
Open and Accessible
Maintaining the convention center’s sense of openness and height, while masking the plenum, Magna T-Cell systems use U-shaped, aluminum or steel members to create open cell panels. These panels install quickly into 9/16-inch ceiling suspension to ensure module alignment, ease of accessibility and simple coordination with lighting and air diffusers. The ceiling panels and suspension system blend together to provide a continuous, open cell ceiling appearance.
For Mandalay Bay, the Magna T-Cell panels were in black to further minimize the system’s presence and mask the equipment above it. Along with HVAC systems, this includes security, audio-visual and a state-of-the-art, high-density Wi-Fi network for seamless connectivity throughout the convention center, resort and affiliated properties.
Beyond encouraging paperless communication and choosing durable, recyclable metal ceiling systems from ROCKFON, Mandalay Bay Convention Center’s environmentally responsible operations include recycling more than 81% of all material and powering its facility, in part, with the world’s largest convention center solar array.
