ECO Series
Low Profile Cable Management Access Floor System

ECO Series

Netfloor ECO Series is one of the best-selling products among Netfloor product family.
ECO series features high cable management capability at low-height, extra-durability, high changeability, easy accessibility, and more important is it’s friendly to the environment.

Since its launch in 1996, millions square meters of the ECO systems have been installed in many of the class-a office building projects, as well as in small school classrooms. To extend best sales services, the systems are distributed through Netfloor world-wide distribution network in the USA, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, UK, Spain, Benelux, Japan, HK, Taiwan, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Brunei,…and more to be established.

In the meantime of distribution network establishing there are emerging market opportunities to the ECO systems which you might think small possibility before. Since year 2000, besides of the offices and schools, ECO series has been growingly using in the call centers, retail stores, exhibition rooms, and even rental live/exhibition events.

Low-Profile at High Capability
The Unique Grid-Pattern Cable Trench System
Cable Trenches:
are formed automatically when installing and connecting Base Connectors to UniPanels
Width of Cable Trench: 90 mm width cable trenchs surrounding every 600 X 600 mm module, jacks form a grid-pattern that facilitates future moves, additions and changes.

High cable management capacity at low-height
System heights:
40 mm, 50 mm, 60 mm.
Cable Trench clearance:
system height minus 9 mm.
Cables: can be routed systematically through the cable trenches, and cavities under the UniPanels providing reserve space for extra distribution.
Free cable extension: Cables extend from cable trenches to connect with service floor boxes, or extend through grommets to connect data and power sockets at partition wall bases, conference table, or workstation desktop locations.
High Changeability
Besides of providing systematic and high cable capacity, the system facilitates high changeability where cable re-routing
and relocation is expected frequently:

1. Systems installed without adhesives to the sub-floor.
2. At the time of re-location, no damage to sub-floor.
3. Cable routing and re-routing is efficient, neat, and with little interference to surrounding workstations.
4. Overnight re-distribution is workable, without interfering business hours.
5. Minimal costs are incurred during re-layout or re-location.
6. In the event of re-location, all components are 100% re-usable.

Simplicity

The system consists 4 main components: UniPanel (main panel), Base Connector, Central Cap, and Flank Cap.

Simplicity

Interlocking configuration, low labor costs

The system consists 4 main components: UniPanel (main panel), Base Connector, Central Cap, and Flank Cap. During installation, UniPanels are connected by Base Connectors, which automatically forms 90 mm wide, grid-pattern Cable Trenches. Steel Cable Trench Caps (Central Cap and Flank Cap) are easily installed, by hand, to cover the Cable Trenches. The Cable Trench Caps are designed to seat firmly on UniPanel, and protect cables running inside the Cable Trenches that can be easily removed for complete accessibility.
All main components, UniPanel, Cable Trench Cap, Base Connector are interchangeable.
The UniPanel is composed of 16 sub-panels, 64 built-in pedestals, self-standing and has a 10 times higher Uniform Loading ration than traditional raised access floor
4-way Base Connector to connect corner pedestals of the UniPanel to automatically form grid-pattern of Cable Trenches
Central Cap and Flank Cap are fully accessible, and inter-changeable. Users can lift the caps easily without using special tools
Continuous interlocking process to lay UniPanels on the floor. It follows the floor contour with no leveling required
Quick Installation, Less Interference
Installation is quick and easy with whether its done by amateurs or trained contract installers. If renovating, installation may be done room by room or area by area to minimize interference in normal office operation. Full height dry wall or de-mountable partition can be erected on top of the system without interrupting cable distribution.
Cost Effective
Labor saving: only 1/2 - 2/3 the installation time compared to conventional raised floor. One installer can complete 70 to 90 sq. meters (750 - 950 SF) per working day.
Low initial cost: Save an average of 2/3 material and labor costs when comparing to traditional raised access floor.
Low maintenance costs: Maintenance costs of the ECO series is almost nonexistent
100 % reusable
In case of renovation or re-location, all main components, with the exception of the sound attenuation blanket, can be easily removed, and are 100 % reusable.
Users Friendly
Accessibility
Cables are free to extend and connect to open office low partitions, full partitions, workstation, desk top, by just replacing the Flank Cap with Exit-Cap (Flank Cap with 60 mm diameter opening). Lifting and replacing of Trench Caps are very easy, either by hand and/or screw driver, without needing special tools or a call to floor contractor.
Full height partition erected on top by fastening floor track onto UniPanel by < 12 mm length wafer-head screw
Half-height partition on ECO series Power, data, voice cables distributing under the floor, efficient and limitless
In case the partition lays on a Cable Trench, drill a hole in the floor track and steel trench cap, then fasten by < 15 mm length blunt-head screw
