Three types of metal ceilings were used in an expansion project of a passenger terminal at Helena Regional Airport. Perforated, curved and torsion spring metal ceilings were installed in the 20,000-square-foot addition, which increased the number of seats from 177 to 500 and the terminal’s capacity to serve six aircraft.

At a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening checkpoint, Just Rite Acoustics Inc. installed Rockfon’s Planar Plus, 4-inch-wide, perforated aluminum linear ceiling in Satin Silver. Near gates, Just Rite installed Rockfon’s 2-foot-wide by 8-foot-long Spanair Torsion Spring aluminum panels in White.

At an amenities area, Just Rite installed Rockfon’s 2-foot-wide by 6-foot-long Curvgrid 2-D curved ceiling panels in White. Waveform ceiling panels are along an interior wall and above a bar. Tight joint splices and miters accentuate the panels’ smooth, rolling appearance.
