  • A raised flooring system needs to be supported with numerous pedestals, and it is essential that you make sure that the pedestals are properly installed so that they are able to properly support the access floors. How can you do this? By hiring Pentafloor®to install your access raised flooring for you!
  • If your access floors are carrying a heavy load, make sure that no floor panels are compromised, and if it is necessary to cut holes in the floor for cables, be sure that the cut tile is properly supported with extra pedestals.
  • Especially when using access floors to conceal large amounts of data cable, there are several things to look out for. The first is that it is highly advised to use a non-conductive material for the access flooring. In the case of an electrical short or other problem, this will prevent the floor from damaging people or other equipment. In addition, the access floors should be fire resistant for the same reason. It is also recommended that the metal framework of the floor be grounded. (information adapted from wisegeek.com)
