Generally 12 to 14 inches above the subfloor, rigid grid access floor systems are elevated floor assemblies that form an underfloor cavity used for mechanical and electrical service distribution.
Systems consist of 2` x 2` removable panels supported on four sides by adjustable pedestals and rigid grid framing members. They are designed specifically to add rigidity to the total flooring system and eliminate panel deflection and lateral movement.
A variety of system accessories are designed to provide comfort, safety and flexibility to the system.
These systems are frequently installed in building rehabs where the original design did not allow for the use of multiple electronic equipment pieces. Older buildings designed prior to the general use of computers do not allow for necessary cabling and wiring. The addition of an access flooring system relieves this problem.
Additional applications include computer rooms, laboratories and learning labs.
