  • Not at this time.

Will Zenith Premium require more width in the ceiling?

  • Yes, because of the pocket closure, the width at the ceiling (or bottom of the pocket) will be slightly wider than a standard Zenith wall of the same size.

Will Zenith Premium require more stack space in the plenum?

  • Not a simple yes or no answer. In many cases, it takes less room to stack Zenith Premium. In other cases, it takes slightly more. The elimination of the top of the
    pocket (which adds inches to the stack height) allows Zenith Premium to stack in essentially the same space as standard Zenith or Classic. Due to the various
    differences in panel height and pocket width, however, there are separate Design Tips charts for Zenith Premium.

Is the acoustical barrier different for Zenith Premium?

  • Yes, the acoustical barrier will extend from the bottom of the pocket to the deck on both sides of the wall. Acoustical barriers for standard Zenith wall is directly
    above the wall. See available drawings. As always, all acoustical barriers must meet ASTM E557 standards based on the acoustical performance of the wall.

Will access panels be required for the Zenith Premium wall?

  • Yes, an access panel will be required through the acoustical barrier to access the motor. Brackets, lifting mechanisms, cables and motor will be accessible through
    the flip up pocket closure panels when the wall is in the down position.

How different is the installation of Zenith Premium from the standard Zenith wall?

  • It will take approximately the same time to install Zenith Premium as the standard Zenith model.
  • However, all installers will need to be trained on the differences including: installing the cable, installing the horizontal panels and the pocket angle, and setting up the AC drive (which is required to vary the motor speed and maintain a more constant travel speed between transitions and decrease the overall travel time).
  • Up-to-date installation instructions will be available prior to the first installation.
