Access Floors: A Twenty-First Century Approach

In the beginning

The first raised floors design featured a post and panel design. This design consisted of a square panel on four steel posts fastened together by additional hardware. They were originally 24-36” in height, but as computer technology advanced, the height of the floor design was lowered to 4-6”. However, despite its lower height, the post and panel design remain the same.


Gridd Introduces a New Access Floor Concept


With the new engineering design of adaptive cable management, Gridd radically changed the Access Floor Industry. This concept was discovered when advancing technology became more necessary and evident. Through the thought and engineering process, Gridd recognized the need for cabling beyond the computer room.

Gridd covers an entire building with built-in flexibility that quickly and easily adapts to changing technology.

A Different Kind of Raised Floor


Gridd’s rugged, yet light-weight, all steel construction with built in channels neatly organizes cables in a sleek 1.6” or 2.75” height. Rather than four posts, the panels have 34 legs stamped out of the steel for unparalleled support and stability.

Instead of panels being fastened together with additional hardware, the system is held together by gravity. This panel system is installed quickly with up to 1,000 square feet per installer, per day.

CSI Assigns Low Profile Fixed Height Access Floors a Unique MasterFormat Number


Gridd’s adaptive cable management concept has become the preferred choice among architects and end users, but it was classified under the same MasterFormat number (10270) as traditional post and panel raised floors and this created confusion.

Architects called for 10270 in their building specifications thinking of Gridd’s adaptive cable management system, but contractors often substituted a traditional post and panel raised floor. A result that dissatisfied end users.

Finally, the CSI governing body recognized Gridd needed a separate classification and it officially assigned Gridd a new MasterFormat number and title: Low Profile Fixed Height Access Flooring.

Gridd’s impact on whole building design is now well established. It provides infrastructure upgrades and office reconfigurations in less time, at less cost and with less disruptions and headaches!
