Integrating structural glass panels into a Tate® Access Floor system is easy with Specialty Raised Flooring. We have developed an extruded aluminum top-fastened 24" frame accepting a 1.25" triple laminated, tempered glass floor panel for all non-perforated areas. This glass panel raised floor system is offered in three configurations, Clear, Sandblast, and White opaque, depending upon the purpose. Our clear panel is triple laminated tempered glass designed for direct observational monitoring of under-floor conditions. These panels are tested to withstand a direct impact load of 150 lb. from a height of 36 inches, and a rolling load of 1000 lb. Stronger panels are available by combining ballistic grade polycarbonate as part of the lamination process.
Glass access floor panels provide unobstructed monitoring of all under-floor systems. They also provide unlimited permanent markings and graphics capabilities, including grid coordinates, egress path identification, special identifiers and information as required for systems navigation within the data center. This is achieved through a high-resolution interlayer allowing virtually any prescribed graphic nomenclature to be permanently encapsulated within the panel, unaffected by foot traffic or other wear and tear.
With the extruded grid tee extending flush with the panel surface, all under-floor grounding is transferred directly to the floor surface every 24 inches in each direction.
