What have others said about your floors?

Q: What types of Floor Panels are available?
A: Hollow steel, Cementitious filled steel, Concrete filled steel and wood-core (particle board) systems are available.

Q: What type of system should I use in a Computer Room?
A: That would depend on the loading being imposed on the floor and the amount of deflection at the design load your project may require. The Industry standard has always been to specify a concentrated load rating at a maximum deflection of .080". However, for the greatest performance a concrete filled steel system in a rigid grid understructure should be specified. This offers optimum loading at .100" deflection with excellent Rolling and Impact loads. Today most users have switched to the concrete filled steel panel due to its increased performance. See Performance Charts.

Q: What finishes are available for use in a Computer Room?
A: HPL (high pressure laminate) is the standard used in most computer rooms. Some projects require a conductive vinyl or conductive HPL . Several carpets are also available for factory lamination to the panels as well as VCT. top

Q: What product should be used in a general office application needing a raised floor for Wire Management?
A: For an office application a concrete-filled product in a corner-loc application is best. Tate offers several load ratings which allow you to tailor the system to the projects needs.

Q: What type of system is best used in a Clean Room application?
A: An all aluminum system is best used in a clean room application. Grates or perforated aluminum panels are used due to the requirement for Laminar Air Floors.

Q: What are the Seismic Requirements for access flooring.
A: All access flooring installed in California must meet the appropriate seismic design for the area. Most of California is seismic zone 4. Also after July 1, 1999 most cities are requiring that the 97 UBC be included in the structural calculations to obtain a building permit. top

Q: What is the lowest height I can install for access flooring?
A: 2-5/8" is the lowest finished floor height. However, since most concrete slabs aren't perfectly level, a minimum of 4" is recommended.

Q: Are Computer Floors only used in certain types of projects?
A: Originally they were only installed in computer rooms. However, in the past 15 years they have evolved into the general office area and are now being designed into a project throughout the facility. Office buildings, schools, hospitals, Internet facilities and libraries are a few of the applications utilizing access flooring.

Q: Can you utilize the plenum under the raised floor for anything other than wire management?
A: Yes. Most new projects are utilizing the plenum to supply the HVAC to the entire building, in a low pressure plenum, giving the project maximum flexibility. Projects like GAP, San Bruno (Green Building Design), Shacklee (new Headquarters building in Pleasanton), the San Jose Library, G. I. A. (in Carlsbad) have successfully used this system. It is frequently used to incorporate a central vacuum system under the floor to facilitate cleaning the carpet tile. top

Q: Does a fixed height flooring system designed for cable management have any provision for height adjustment?
A: No. All fixed height systems are just that, but they do offer two distinct height options: 58 mm and 88 mm.
