It was Gridd that radically changed the industry by introducing the idea of adaptive cable management. It recognized that advancing technology extended 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.
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, it has 34 legs stamped out of the steel for unparalleled support and stability.
Nor does it fasten together with additional hardware. It is held together by gravity and installed quickly—up to 1,000 square feet per installer, per day.
Gridd’s adaptive cable management concept became 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!
