Gridd raised flooring is fully compatible for renovations and retrofits in older and historic buildings. To retain their character but also accommodate the life and workstyle of today’s occupants, low profile access floor systems can upgrade older buildings to accommodate today’s and tomorrow’s technology.
Gridd eliminates the difficulty of running cables for power, voice and data technology. Floor trenches and poke-throughs for wires inhibit growth and change, and compromise a building’s structural integrity.
The Gridd low profile raised floor solves this problem because it does not attach to the subfloor or walls. Instead, it preserves historic structural integrity because of the uniquely designed, gravity-held components.
Gridd also maintains the aesthetic design of buildings because its access floor system lies on top of existing terrazzo, marble, or wood floors without damaging these luxury materials. Changes are quick and easy to make by hand, and the system can go with you if you move.
Preserves The Integrity Of Historic Structures
As a result of their unique design, gravity-held Gridd floors can lay on top of existing terrazzo, marble or wood floors without any damage to the floor and provides a smart, practical foundation on which design teams can then build.
Warehouse Conversions Are A Snap
Gridd is the preenimate solution for large high-bay open space than an access floor to get cables where they’re needed. A drop ceiling isn’t realistic, from a structural or cost perspective. Interior wall construction is expensive, consumes usable space and compromises the aesthetics of an open environment.
Gridd offers modular ramp components that meet ADA slope requirements with many ramp configuration options. The Gridd access floor system’s low profile design eliminates the need for costly handrails and ramping consumes far less space than higher traditional raised access floors.
