Camass System

Internet and intranet are far beyond imagination of architects and developers who designed and/or built buildings in 1980s and before. Most office buildings built in 1980s and earlier, did not reserve height for raised access floor. In order to modernize those offices and school buildings, low-profile access floor is an effective solution for routing by large quantity of power and date cables above the sub-floors.

Camass System



Camass system has complete pedestal systems, which supporting finish floor height of access floor from supper low    
40 mm (1.57”) to 150 mm (6.0”). The system has effectively
retained maximum clearance in-between access floor and
ceiling, and in the meantime, provides large capacity for cable
routing inside cable trenches.

Base Connector: to connect four UniPanels’ pedestals.
                                                                    
Central Cap: capping Cable Trench at intersection.
                                                                          
Flank Cap: capping Cable Trench at flanks of UniPanels.

Cable Management & Accommodation


Once installed, the grid-pattern cable trenches spread overall the access flooring which consists of 90 mm wide (3.54”)  pening within every 600 mm (23.62”). Cables are distributed inside the Cable Trenches in order systematically. All exit of power and data wires are extended through the cable trenches directly, or by connected at the power sockets or data jacks in the service floor boxes installed at the cable trenches or the Outlet-Panels.
Efficient for cable extension and connection


Extension from the Cable Trench to workstation or
partition:
Power, voice and data cables are extended directly through the Exit-Cap, which is a Flank Cap consisted of 60 mm diameter pre-punched opening at one side. Grommet installed at the punched opening to protect the cables. The Exit-Cap option is efficient and cost-effective solutions for cable routing and extension.

Why Camass ®  system is ideal solution for office and school modernization?

Nowadays, low-profile access floors have become a necessity in most of commercial and institutional interiors such as in offices, schools, libraries, museums, and so on. The conventional raised access floors (CRF), which are using in factories or data centers, have been slightly modified and to use in offices lately. Fundamentally, they are not suitable
applications. The chart below is comparison made between Camass, other fixed height low-profile access floor, and the CRF. The chart has addressed many of the common issues.
