Office System Access Flooring uses a gravity-held panel in a stringer system or corner lock system where the panel is screwed to a pedestal with no stringers. The corner lock system is quicker, cheaper and lighter.
The Office System raised floor by Novaproducts is designed to take modular carpet tiles. Normally, a tacky light-duty adhesive is used to hold carpet tiles in place. It’s a trap to try and align carpet tiles with panels. Most carpet tiles are 500x500mm and the corner lock is 600x600mm.
Computer access floor systems are undoubtedly the best way to preserve ceilings, and reduce high-risk ceiling work for aircon and electrical repairs. Running services such as communication cables power cables hot and cold water sewage gas pipes fire services, CCTV systems central heating etc reduces risk to personnel, and equipment by operating underfloor. This is the best way to fit these services into a building. The office system access floor allows for easy moving of offices, photocopiers fish tanks etc with little to no extra cutting or destruction of normal ceiling panels/walls.
The parts: The panels are mostly 4.5kg capacity, 38mm thick, with a rust-resistant coating. The panels on access flooring are steel-encapsulated cementitious panels. Very strong and fireproof and buckle stable. Cities such as Darwin, Hobart, Alice Springs, Melbourne, Sydney, central coast, cairns, Perth and Adelaide all have this product installed and mostly remain in good condition for decades.
It is good to practice making sure all panels are placed in the same position and orientation. In construction and specification, reference should be made to plenty of spares evenly panels. The manufacturer and installer should be recorded on panels and the base floor for future reference.
Cutouts in panels and vents, grilles and grommets and power outlets should be specified to keep tendered prices down on computer-raised floors. Panels can be customised with commercial floor vinyl covering. It is important to ensure the floor is sealed with a concrete sealer to reduce dust. Hints – read CONTROL ROOM SYSTEM DETAILS as there is valuable information for this product as well. Don’t design panels to be a full panels at the edge.
