RAFt

Cannon RAFtA RAFt is an installation frame which is used under a cabinet, in place of a floor tile in raised floor installations, to provide extensive benefits. 

Features

Features and Benefits

  • The RAFt sits on the pedestal heads integrating into the raised floor installation that can be bayed, just like cabinets. The system dramatically reduces installation time and costs compared to traditional installation methods.
  • No tile cutting needed - saving further cost and mess
  • Provides full width cable entry through base
  • Exceptional base air flow; can be sealed with Cannon diaphragm or brush strip
  • Increases rigidity of lateral movement of raised floor installation
  • Secures cabinet to pedestal system - no need for tie bars to the floor substrate
  • Allows minimised aisle widths and avoids cut tiles in aisle - even for 1000mm deep cabinets as tiles in aisle slide under cabinet
  • Tiles in aisle can be lifted due to clearance of raised cabinet base
  • RAFt available in Rear Overhang or Central mounting versions

Accessories

Brackets 

RAFt Stringer Clamp

  • Individual clamps for use with floor stringers which hook under the stringers to prevent cabinet tipping
  • Four clamps per cabinet recommended, one in each corner
  • However, if the cabinets are securely bayed together one clamp may be used at the front and the rear
  • The end cabinets should still have four clamps each

Supplied: Individually

RAFt Pedestal Clamp

  • Single front and rear clamps for use when stringers are not present
  • These clamps are slotted for adjustment and clamp to the underside of the pedestal heads. Four clamps per cabinet recommended, one in each corner
  • However, if the cabinets are securely bayed together one clamp may be used at the front and the rear
  • The end cabinets should still have four clamps each

Supplied: Individually

RAFt Pedestal Clamp - 600 Centres

  • Double side clamps for use when stringers are not present
  • These clamps are slotted for adjustment and clamp to the underside of the pedestal heads
  • Two clamps per cabinet recommended, one on each side
  • However, if the cabinets are securely bayed together one clamp may be used
  • The end cabinets should still have two clamps each

Supplied: Individually

Specification

Specification 

The Cannon RAFt System is compatible with the majority of Raised Access Floors with a modular tile size of 600mm x 600mm in current use worldwide.

Installation of the Cannon RAFt System is very simple as the system is designed to replace complete floor tiles in Raised Access Flooring where Cannon cabinets are to be installed.

Dimensions

Depth

The RAFt consists of a series of individual 'picture frames' which are bolted together and which always have the same depth (front-to-back) dimension as a floor tile (600mm).

Cabinets with a depth (front-to-back) dimension greater than 600mm, overhang the RAFt equally at front and rear, i.e. a 900mm cabinet would overhang the RAFt by 150mm at the front and rear or may be offset/aligned with front of cabinet.

However, the RAFt raises the cabinet above the floor sufficiently to allow the overhung tiles to be raised vertically and slid sideways for access to the under floor void.

Width

It is preferable that the frame width matches the cabinet width (600, 700 or 800mm).

System Clamps

Single front & rear clamps (Order code: 307C11180500) - for use where stringers are not present. These clamps are slotted for adjustment and clamp to the underside of the pedestal heads.

Four clamps per cabinet should be used, one in each corner, however, if the cabinets are securely bayed together it may be considered adequate to use two per cabinet (one front & rear).

It is recommended that the end cabinets in a row, each have four clamps fitted, or at least the clamps should be to the 'outside' of these cabinets.

System & Raised Floor

The RAFt raises the cabinet above the floor sufficiently to allow the overhung tiles to be raised vertically and slid sideways for access to the under floor void.

RAFt System - 600mm, 700mm & 800mm Wide Versions

RAFt Width

It is preferable that the frame width matches the cabinet width (600, 700 or 800mm).A 700 wide or 800 wide RAFt is laid out in the same manner as the 600 wide RAFt except from the position of clamp brackets and the end of raft position. Where a RAFt is built up from a multiple of frame widths other than the tile modular width of 600mm, it is likely that a part tile will be needed to act as a 'filler' at the end of the bay.

A bracket is available (Order code: 307C00025002 cut tile support ) which bolts to the end of the RAFt to support this part tile. However, installers should check with the flooring manufacturers as to whether extra pedestals are also required to maintain the integrity/warranty of the floor system.
