The HF Express is fast suspension solution, up to 6 times faster to install than a traditional methods. The HF Express can be used by a variety of services.
The installation of the CTI and HF Express in order to suspend electrical, lighting and air conditioning allows to save of materials costs, installation time, and to reduce CO2 emissions comparing to a traditional method. Indeed, material cost is only 18 100 € comparing to 26 840 € for a traditional method. The easy and fast use of CTI and HF Express made the installation almost two times faster than a traditional method with metal brackets.
