Fire retard classification on Low-Profile Cable Management Floors
1. Fire retard is an important issue often asked by architects, contractors, and owners.
Are Netfloor systems non-combustible?
Among Netfloor Systems: Camass and CamassCrete series are systems of "non-combustible".
Which fire retard standards Netfloor Cable Management Systems have met?
Camass and CamassCrete meet BS-476 part 4 "non-combustible" also NYC MEA approval.
What test reports Netfloor Systems have conducted?
Other Netfloor Systems, ECO series CA-600R, CA-500R, and CA-400R meet BS476, part 7 Class 2 and meet NFPA 253 class 1 (Critical Radiant Flux Test for Floor Coverings).
Are Netfloor Systems same flammability standard as Raised Access Floor? and Raised Access Floor is non-combustible or class "0". Can Netfloor Systems meet?
Netfloors are not necessary same standards as Conventional Raised Access Floors (CRF).
Non-combustible is part of the standards which the CRF needed to meet due to its applications (explain at section 2).
Design concepts and applications of Netfloor Systems and other Low-Profile Cable Management Floor systems (Low-Profiles)are not same as the CRF.
Netfloor Systems and Low-Profile are developed particularly for the cable management purposes in the office environment. However, the question is Netfloor Systems and other Low-Profiles are latest development. CRF has been introduced to the market for more than 30 years. So, Netfloor Systems and Low-Profiles are automatically classified as a type of Raised Floor. And the fire retard standards applied for CRF are often requested to Netfloor Systems and the Low-Profiles.
