FreeAxez fine tunes underfloor cable management systems for increased sustainability
With 25 years’ experience in this product category, FreeAxez says it "has created a revolutionary design that solves long-standing sustainable challenges attributed to traditional methods of cable distribution in buildings."
FreeAxez, a provider of whole-building adaptive cabling distribution systems, has announced the latest versions of its Gridd and Gridd Power systems at NeoCon 2015 (June 17-19), the commercial interiors industry's most notable annual event. The new systems provide easy underfloor access to a facility’s cables and wiring, providing high performance and versatility for today’s modern commercial and high-technology environments.
The new product launches signify the next generation of cable management systems, contends the company. Gridd is a UL-listed, modular, all-steel, adaptive cabling distribution system that safely distributes cables throughout a building directly beneath the finished floor. Gridd Power is a 50 amp electrical bus track system that allows devices and furniture to easily connect to electricity in the Gridd system.
“Whole building cabling distribution systems are the future of commercial and high tech environments,” comments Earl Geertgens, CEO of FreeAxez. “Gridd is a catalyst for adaptive and collaborative space as it allows for commercial layouts to be reconfigured easily, quickly, and at a significant cost savings to traditional raised flooring systems and other wiring methods.”
Gridd is a safer and more flexible solution than competing products, asserts the company, negating the need to access wiring in awkward or inaccessible spaces. With 25 years’ experience in this product category, FreeAxez says it "has created a revolutionary design that solves long-standing sustainable challenges attributed to traditional methods of cable distribution in buildings by facilitating adaptive reuse and enhancing building resiliency, material reduction, indoor air quality, fire safety and the overall health, safety, and welfare of building occupants."
The Gridd system significantly reduces the time, hassle and costs associated with traditional wiring methods, adds the company. Installation takes less than half the time of a post and panel raised floor, claims FreeAxez, leading to significant savings in labor costs. The Gridd system can be repositioned, redeployed, reused or recycled in its original state, in any building, adds the company. FreeAxez offers clients hands on support throughout every phase of the project, including lifetime support of every building that its Gridd system is employed.
The Gridd system is 100 percent made in the USA with locally harvested raw material and US manufactured steel. The company notes that the product is Greenspec listed and can contribute to LEED credits in five categories, including building reuse, construction waste management, materials reuse, recycled content and regional materials.
