Heavyweight newcomer floors competition
Marshall-Tufflex has beefed up its Underfloor to Desk range with the launch of a new raised floor box strong enough to withstand the combined weight of ten baby elephants.
The new box is quicker and easier to install and comes as standard with a market-leading 3mm support plate allowing it to handle medium load traffic. For installations requiring heavy load classification a steel sub-frame can be ordered and quickly inserted to support the lid without restricting space for wiring and accessories.
During load testing this steel sub-frame, which also allows for fine adjustments to accommodate uneven flooring, proved itself capable of withstanding a 1.25 tonne load – more than the combined weight of 10 new-born elephants.
In addition, the floor box has been designed with earth fixing points at each end, giving installers greater flexibility when positioning sockets. It is supplied with dividers that make it suitable for use as either a three or four compartment box.
Jeremy Dodge, Marshall-Tufflex Head of Marketing & Technical Services said: “Our aim was to provide installers with one product that meets a wider range of needs, offers more flexible installation and can be upgraded to increase load capacity as required.”
