Wire and Cable Management for Raised Floor Systems
WEST HARTFORD, Conn. December 27, 2007 – Legrand/Wiremold offers raised floor components that are compatible with underfloor displacement air ventilation systems and enable them to function with maximum efficiency. A raised floor system introduces air into the room at floor level through diffusers in the raised floor tiles. Benefits include reduced HVAC loads and lower ductwork and fan costs. But these systems can not function optimally if air leaks through the floor boxes that house electrical and data connections.
Raised floor boxes that have been designed to prevent air leakage work in concert with the Walkerflex® modular wiring system, which includes stranded MC cables, cable connectors, and home run cables. It is designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of raised floor installations in commercial, education, government, healthcare, amusement, and other facilities.
Other systems for raised floor applications include Vista™ pedestals that provide convenient desk-height connectivity, and Cablofil® wire basket cable tray for managing wires and cables under the raised floor.
