Pedestals and stringers are integral parts of any raised access floor system, ensuring compliance with the appropriate standards. AFD offer a range of pedestals and stringers designed specifically for use with our Indigo, Crimson and Knauf GIFAfloor products.
Testing and certification of any raised access floor system is carried out using both the panel and pedestals. Compliance to performance specification is reliant on using the correct combination of components. The understructure of access floor systems are subject to considerable loads and therefore must be selected appropriately. AFD offer pedestals in medium, heavy and extra heavy grade to meet the PSA MOB or European specification required for any application.
All AFD pedestals are manufactured using corrosion resistant steel. This ensures electrical continuity is maintained in addition to delivering high strength. Available in various heights from 50mm to 2000mm to suit the application. All pedestals have height adjustment heads for final levelling. A locking nut is included to offer a locking facility after adjustment, ensuring no movement in the head.
A range of pedestal head designs are available to suit the application, including angled heads where ramps are being formed in the floor. Different designs for various stringer options can also be supplied. Where cornerlock and Crimson raised access floors are used, special pedestals are available to aid location and installation tolerances.
If floor heights exceed 600mm, the use of stringers is recommended to provide additional lateral support. Stringers are also manufactured using corrosion resistant steel. Connection to pedestals is via either snap in or bolt on options to suit project requirements.
To complete the understructure, a range of ABS pedestal head caps are also available. All standard pedestals and stringers are available from stock for immediate delivery with your access floor system.
