Use this CSI 3-part SimpleSpec™ template to specify raised access flooring.
Flooring is used to provide an interstitial space for utilities while providing accessibility to those utilities. A grid of steel supports on adjustable pedestals is placed over a structural floor, providing support for removable floor panels. Ramps and steps are included in this section to provide access to the raised flooring.
Systems are available in a variety of grid types, load capacities, and finishes to suit project requirements.
Grid systems are available in steel or aluminum and as drop-in or bolted assemblies.
Removable floor panels are available in steel or aluminum with wood cores or factory-installed cementitious fill.
Panels may be of the bolted type where a mechanical fastener is installed at panel corners, or drop-in type that do not require fasteners. Panels may be unfinished for use with free-lay carpet tiles or finished with carpet or plastic laminate. Perforated panels are available to provide for air distribution.
Low-profile systems are also available and can be added to this section.
