ASM Raised Access Floor System: Understructures

●   Versatile understructure for all types of installations

●   Electrical resistance of less than 10 ohms

●   ASM's steel manufacturing facility is ISO 9002 registered

ASM's superior finishes are effective and consistent, giving a bright and polished look with protective
properties. All ASM's parts are dipped in the corrosion-resistant finish after stamping and welding,
to protect welds and raw edges from rusting.



The Quick-Loc Pedestal (patent pending) is the only pedestal that supports the panel on both the flange and the beam.
This design transfers the load to the center axis of the
pedestal where it is supported by the vertical shaft of the pedestal. The load is transferred directly down the center
of the pedestal column. This eliminates rocking which can
happen when a standard flat head pedestal supports the
beam of the panel.

Corner Bolt


This is the most widely used system for general offices
where carpet tile is to be installed. This system is utilized
when a fully intergrated, locking system is required for
mounting equipment to the access floor system. It is recommended to use a rigid grid stringer for additional
strength and support. A1/4-20 threaded fastener secures
the panel firmly to the pedestal system in each corner of
the panel.

Rigid Grid

Rigid Grid

Offering great lateral support, this system is generally used
where the panels are gravity held on the understructure.
Stringers are available in 2' (600 mm) and 4' (1200 mm)
lengths allowing for standard (2' x 2') or basketweave
installations (4' x 4' or 4' x 2'). Every ASM stringer is hot
dipped galvanized to preclude the possibility of equipment
shorting as a result of zinc whiskering. Every ASM stringer
boasts solid tube construction to resist bowing and spreading
during load impacts, and a solid vinyl strip for a snug, quiet
fit between stringer and panel.

Seismic Pedestals


ASM offers the most comprehensive variety of pedestal types
allowing for durable strength in any of zones 1 through 4.
This full line of pedestals can further be strengthened by
bolting them to the concrete slab for the most solid access
flooring systems available. ASM introduces its Atlas Pedestal
Systems, designed for optimal heavy duty support and for
the most severe conditions. No other system compares for
strength and simplicity.
