Gateway Ceiling Mounting Kit

Impinj’s Gateway Ceiling Mounting Kit is designed to facilitate drop-ceiling installation of an xArray gateway. The kit attaches an xArray to the support system of a suspended ceiling, or secondary ceiling hung below the main (structural) ceiling, fitting in the T-bar metal framing system and replacing one standard 24 x 24 in. ceiling tile. The Gateway Ceiling Mounting Kit contains a custom-drilled 2-foot x 2-foot steel plate and the screws, anchors and cables (100 ft. braided, with looped ends) required to replace a standard ceiling tile.
