Pre-Finished Cavity Floor

Cavity Floor Panels

Tate's Cavity Floor Panel

Cavity floor is a new form of raised floor system designed for specific applications that require limited or no access to the underfloor area. Hatch Panels can be planned in the floor layout to allow underfloor access as needed. Cavity Floors provide a service distribution pathway so that service can be accessed without degrading the integrity of the building. Tate offers Cavity Floor Panels as finish ready. 

The finish ready tongue and groove cavity floor offers the ultimate substrate for field applied finishes. This perfectly level solution can reduce screed costs, speed construction, and enable for execution of complex transitions. The underfloor pathway provides easier access via hatch panels to service without core-drilling or trenching.

*All tests are performed using CISCA's Recommended Test Procedures for Access Floors with the exception of Design Load

1. System Design Load is based on permanent set ≤ 0.010” and is verified by loading panels in accordance with the CISCA concentrated load method but with panels installed on actual understructure instead of steel blocks. (Testing on blocks does not represent performance of an actual installation.) Ultimate, Rolling, and Impact Load tests are performed using CISCA Test Procedures.
2. Safety Factor is Ultimate Load divided by Design Load.
