SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Low Profile Cable Management System provided as a complete integrated system to include finished carpet covered surface, electrical power outlets and all inter-connecting power cabling, communication outlets, data outlets, all data/comm. cabling, and intermediate wiring center suitable for bulk connection to building services. System shall provide a complete floor located Cable Management System (CMS) to meet or exceed the following requirements:

A) No CMS component is to be mechanically or permanently affixed to the building structure in any fashion, except for power, data, and communication service connections.

B) CMS shall not exceed 3" nominal height, to include all components except railings and intermediate wiring centers.

C) Ramp access to the CMS to be provided not to exceed 18" in length, where ADA access is required not to exceed 36" in length.

D) CMS shall support a weight load capacity of at least 41,000 lbs per square foot.

E) CMS shall be provided in a panel configuration, to allow for the relocation of any panel, complete with finished surface, with any other panel in the system. Panel relocation to be accomplished without any disconnection or reconnection of any mechanical attachment devises. Panels shall be not less than 12" x 12" and not greater than 24" x 24" nominal, except edge panels provided to be field "cut to fit" to meet building constraints.

F) CMS shall allow for power, data, or communication outlets to be located at a minimum of 9" center to center in both horizontal directions.

G) All power, data, and communication outlets shall be provided flush mounted to panels as specified. Relocation of panels with outlets shall be accomplished without the disconnection of the outlets.
