How to choose raised access floor?

Postby Guest » Wed Nov 04, 2009 11:16 pm

1. Choose wood core type raised access floor if better foot feel is preferred. Unlike China laminate flooring, the surface of wood core is not strong abrasion resistant. So the surface should be covered with antistatic HPL or PVC which is strong wearing resistant. Choose HPL, PVC or carpet covered type if more beautiful look is required for the type of cement infill panel. Choose perforated type if ventilation for the floor is preferred. Choose OA type if lots of wire or cables need to be used on the floor. Don’t choose wood core type if water resistance is required.

2. Set the weight of the heaviest facility in the computer room as the minimum loading capacity to avoid the damage of raised access floor during its daily use. Be familiar with the required specifications such as the concentrated load, uniform load, ultimate load, system resistance and wearing resistance to make sure the selected floor meet each standard.

3. The surface of floor should be strong abrasion resistant, strong moisture resistant, anti-slip, environmentally friendly, strong corrosion resistant and clean. The pedestal can be adjusted to the required height. Check the length, width and thickness of panel to see it meet the requirement. Check the pedestal to see they are fully galvanized if galvanization is required.

4. Calculate the total indoor area of the room and then work out the necessary quantity of raised access floor and related accessories such as cable box, lifter, pedestal, stringer, etc.
