DAMPA Continuous Ceiling Approved By U.S. Navy—
Free Brochure Available DAMPA Marine has made avail- able a free 20-page brochure on the DAMPA® Continuous Ceiling Sys- tem (DDC) that the company manufactures. The U.S. Navy (NAVSEA)-approved DAMPA Continuous Ceiling is a lightweight galvanized steel and baked enameled with unperforated or perforated surface for increased sound absorption.
The publication, which is generously illustrated with photos, drawings and graphs, describes DCC as a steel ceiling system that can be mounted either before, during or after the installation of partitions. Fire resistant and sound absorbing, the lightweight steel construction combines rigidity and strength. The ceiling units are supplied pre-cut to fit each individual room requirement, thus reducing labor costs, installation time (approximately six minutes a square foot), and waste of materials; and a wide range of integrated components such as luminaires, loudspeakers and ventilation units are available. DCC is marketed through a worldwide network of subsidiaries and partners, and designers, shipowners and yards have specified and used it in more than 1,000 vessels.
In addition to being U.S. Navy (NAVSEA)-approved for future application onboard U.S. Navy and Military Sea Lift Command vessels (new and conversions), DCC fulfills "A" class divisions of A-0, A-15, A- 30, and A-60 standards and "B" class divisions of B-0, B-15, and B- 30, respectively, as defined by IMO International Conference on Safety of Life at Sea 1974 (SOLAS 1974).
