If your business uses a lot of technology, then perhaps a raised access flooring system is the perfect choice to invest in. The concept of a raised floor has been around since the 1970s, and in recent years, more and more tech-heavy companies are making the switch.
Why use cable management flooring?
A raised access floor is made up of panels that are supported by pedestals, creating an area of space below the floor to store servers, wires and more. Here are five reasons this system could be right for you:
1. Organise and Hide Wires Under the Floor
Although an essential element of modern day offices the huge number of wires that connect all of your technology are not attractive. Raised flooring systems provide space beneath the floor surface to run all of the wires, cords and pipes.
Keep them orderly under the floor and your space will look clean and organized at all times. The aesthetic appearance of any office space with a large tech volume will be instantly upped when the wires disappear.

Compatible with a large variety of flooring surface coverings you can easily achieve the look you’re going for. Some of the traditional raised flooring systems come with HPL adhered to the surface of each panel. With Cabloor raised flooring system you have the choice of floor covering.

With the changing office environment post-pandemic the way that offices are used is changing. The current trend is to spend the majority of time working from home with staff coming to the office for team working.

With this modular system, each of the elements can be replaced easily without having to overhaul an entire space or cause a major inconvenience. If you are moving office or need to set up a temporary space such as a comms room or an exhibition the floor can easily be quickly packed away and reinstalled elsewhere.
