Raised access flooring is the answer you have been looking for


Are you tired of walking into your server room and seeing cables lying everywhere? Then raised access flooring is the answer you have been looking for. Cables lying everywhere can not only be messy but also dangerous. You may have a far bigger problem on your hands, apart from not knowing which one goes where, if you do not fix the situation soon.


The server room is the life blood for most big businesses. All of the cabling and main frame computers are kept in this area. Having one that is completely disorganised, is not acceptable. Not only will you not have a functioning server room but you could also be causing unnecessary danger for your staff. Static electricity is a big deal. Sometimes the shocks can be small and other times life-threatening. Messy cables makes it difficult to see whether wires are exposed and this might just cause an accident. Rather than having to deal with this situation, you can make the smart choice and get a raised access flooring installed.


Raised access flooring will provide you with the perfect solution. Not only will all of your cables be hidden away from view, but you will also have access to them whenever you need. How does it work? The floor is built on top of the original concrete flooring of the building. Before this process begins, the cabling will need to be secured and taken up through the flooring and “plugged in” to the appropriate area. Once this is done the flooring can get constructed above it. It is created by using a pedestals, stringer and floor panels. The pedestals create space between the original floor and the new floor panels that have just been put in place and the stringers make sure that everything is stable. As this particular raised access floor is being installed in a server room it is a good idea to look at some of the accessories that go hand in hand with this type of flooring.


You will need to have air-diffusers installed at the same time as the flooring. The space between the original and new panels, will create a certain amount of air flow. This air flow is important because it helps to keep all of the cabling cool. If you add into equation the air-diffuser, even more air flow will be created. On top of that, it has been designed to assist in keeping dust to a minimum. This will help to ensure that your cables stay good as new for as long as possible. There is absolutely no reason for your server room to be a mess, simply install a raised floor and enjoy the benefits.
