*All tests are performed using CISCA's Recommended Test Procedures for Access Floors with the exception of Design Load

  1. System Design Load is based on permanent set ≤ 0.010” and is verified by loading panels in accordance with the CISCA concentrated load method but with panels installed on actual understructure instead of steel blocks. (Testing on blocks does not represent performance of an actual installation.) Ultimate, Rolling, and Impact Load tests are performed using CISCA Test Procedures.

  2. Safety Factor is Ultimate Load divided by Design Load.
