• Site Conditions

    Even though RFT raised access floors are very robust, damage can be caused during off- loading of the goods. Care should be t a ken when handling the goods with the use of forklifts, trucks, hoisting equipment, or manual handling.

    Sufficiently ventilated and watertight storage facilities should be used to store the product, in suitable humidity and temperature conditions. Temperatures should be between 10ºC and 30ºC , while relative humidity should not exceed 75% RH.Materials should not bes t a c ke d more than two pallets high.

    Before starting the installation process, check for air leakage and electrical continuity. Specific site safety requirements should be respected. Appropriate safety equipment and procedures should be strictly adhered to as the installation requires the use of power tools.

    Sub-floor conditions
    The concrete/other sub-floor must be free of any debris, dust, oil, grease or other contaminants which may be detrimental to the pedestal adhesive bond. The overall level of the sub-floor should be checked to ensure that variations are within the adjustment range of the raised access floor support pedestals.

  • Installation Tolerance

    Gaps between panels
    The maximum gap between panels when located in their respective positions shall not e xceed 1mm.

    The system shall not rely on perimeter walls, columns etc. for lateral stability. It shall provide a close fit to such interface whilst allowing for possible building movement and hydrothermal movement in the floor system, but without any detrimental effect on the floor performance. At perimeters and around columns the maximum allowable gap shall be 15mm with edge panels being positively located to prevent lateral movement of the floor assembly. Special consideration should be given to the panel support arrangements at threshold interfaces, which shall not create a hazard to pedestrians.

    Overall levels
    Before the application of any load, the access floor surface shall be level within:
    Before the application of any load, the access floor surface shall be level within:
    ± 1,5mm over 3,0m
    ± 2,5mm over entire floor
    ± 0,5mm variation in height between adjoining panels
