Fire retard classification on Low-Profile Cable Management Floors
1. Fire retard is an important issue often asked by architects, contractors, and owners.
Netfloors are not necessary same standards as Conventional Raised Access Floors (CRF).
Non-combustible is part of the standards which the CRF needed to meet due to its applications (explain at section 2).
Design concepts and applications of Netfloor Systems and other Low-Profile Cable Management Floor systems (Low-Profiles)are not same as the CRF.
Netfloor Systems and Low-Profile are developed particularly for the cable management purposes in the office environment. However, the question is Netfloor Systems and other Low-Profiles are latest development. CRF has been introduced to the market for more than 30 years. So, Netfloor Systems and Low-Profiles are automatically classified as a type of Raised Floor. And the fire retard standards applied for CRF are often requested to Netfloor Systems and the Low-Profiles.
