Low Floor Void
Traditional Raised Floor Low Void
Traditional low void raised access flooring, unlike specially designed "cable management" floor systems have the ability to accommodate the undulations of the sub floor whilst maintaining a level finished platform similar to that of a standard RMF traditional raised floor system.
More importantly the cost per square meter is in the region of 20% cheaper than that of other specially designed cable management floor systems.
Standard raised floor systems generally have a tolerance to the under structure to accommodate a 30mm deviation, however, the lower the void the less adjustment is available on the under structure.
Over many year’s experience RMF have developed a wide and varied range of traditional low floor void systems to accommodate exceptional low floor voids from 10-60mm. (from the highest point of the slab) A dedicated team are involved in overcoming to date any design issue that they have been challenged with.
Typically a void less than 60mm in a general commercial working environment becomes impractical, limited by the effective usable working void for specific mechanical & electrical services i.e. electric, plugs sockets, floor boxes, grommets.
Exceptionally low floor voids ranging between 10-60mm are required for a number of reasons:
- Where the head room above the finished floor height of the raised floor take precedence.
- Site restrictions limit the maximum floor void possible.
- The sub floor variance in places reduces the void to an exceptionally low height.
- In many cases, low floor voids are simply screeded, notwithstanding this, becoming a permanent fixed structure having services embedded within the screed, is often impractical, messy and a time consuming process.
In these cases we can utilise an RMF low void raised floor system either in its entirety of in parts where restrictions are perhaps localised.
RMF have specially designed low floor under structure and panels to accommodate any restriction that may pose a problem. We have not been out witted to date, so before dismissing a low void floor, compared to screed, contact us and allow our team of specialists to help solve your project queries.
Intercell Cable Management Low Void
RMF Intercell - the low profile Cable Management System
Intercell offers a strong, space saving cellular flooring system, designed to manage cable distribution in existing and new structures. The Intercell floor offers a complete package of practical and long-term benefits easy handling and installation. With its practical modular size of 500 x 500 mm., Intercell offers easy handling, transport, storage and of course installation.
Building site efficiency
The practical installation of Intercell offers site-efficiency, small areas can be handed over quicker resulting in a shorter programme and less disruption.
Installation of cabling is much easier and faster compared with ceiling, wall and cable ducting systems. A special Intercell floorbox offers full compatibility to most standard European connector types.
Despite the low height of the system, Intercell offers maximum cabling-capacity. The multi-pedestal structure creates a basis for natural cable distribution and separation.
With its low profile, Intercell offers minimal floor-to-ceiling encroachment and can be installed in existing or new buildings with little or no loss of headroom, saving substantial construction costs.
With 16 pedestals per panel and 64 pedestals per m², Intercell creates a solid and safe underfoot feel. The load carrying capacity is outstanding.
The additional weight to the building structure is 22 kg/m2 at a maximum.
Intercell does not adversely affect the modular carpet static propensity and static dissipation properties.
No settlement adjustments
Once installed, Intercell will not require any settlement adjustments or derocking, which saves operational costs and minimises workspace disruption.
Future planning advantages
Intercell has enough cable capacity to suit any future needs and is easy to reconfigure when organisations need to change, resulting in lower operational costs of the building.

Soluflex Cable Management
Soluflex... Integrated Cable Management
Legrand’s latest development, Soluflex, is much more than just a raised floor. This innovative new system cable management system integrates low-level flooring with Legrand’s market leading solutions.
All cables for power, data, and telecoms can be structured in a logical, ready to use layout that remains hidden to end users.
Quick and easy installation
It’s simply a question of placing supports on the floor and then clicking the durable steel tiles into place (without the need for glue or fixings).
Once the floor has been laid, the required cabling and connections can be installed between the supports by removing the relevant tiles until cabling is complete. The finished installation can then be covered with any type of covering... carpet tiles, rubber, stone or wood. And if the office layout changes, or even relocates, Soluflex can be reconfigured and re-used.
