Consider a low-profile access floor system if you want a flexible infrastructure solution to simplify cable management. Low-profile access floors are specialized raised flooring systems used in buildings to provide an accessible space for distributing services such as power and data.

Unlike traditional raised access computer floors, which typically have a higher floor height, low-profile raised access flooring offers a thinner, more compact design.

They are commonly used in various environments, including offices, data centers, control rooms, libraries, museums, and commercial buildings.

Any environment where a discreet and accessible service distribution solution is required while optimizing available space can benefit from this system.

Benefits of Low-Profile Access Flooring

Space Savings

Low-Profile Access Flooring VideoOne of the primary advantages of low-profile access flooring is its space-saving nature. These systems maximize the available vertical space by minimizing the floor height, making them particularly suitable for areas with height restrictions or limited space, such as refurbishments, renovations, or buildings with shallow floor voids.

Cable Management Systems

A low-profile raised access floor provides a dedicated underfloor space for routing and organizing cables. This ensures a neat and organized workspace, minimizes tripping hazards, and simplifies cabling infrastructure maintenance and upgrades.

Quick Installation

Low-profile computer access flooring is a modular raised floor system that installs 75% faster than traditional methods: a team of four installers can install 2700 square feet daily. The raised floor system also requires no specialized training to install. The floor tiles can be cut without specialized equipment, and the height-adjustable components enable simple installation with no modifications needed for uneven floors.

Flexibility and Adaptability

Power and data outlets can be added or relocated without requiring extensive modifications to the building structure, offering a flexible and adaptable solution. The raised access flooring system is also reusable; since it is not glued to the concrete slab, the access flooring can be removed and relocated without causing damage.


The raised platform of a low-profile access floor allows easy access to the underfloor area. Technicians can quickly reach and service cables, electrical components, or other systems without the need for disruptive or time-consuming dismantling of the floor or ceiling.

Low-Profile Access Flooring v. Traditional Raised Access Flooring

Low-profile access flooring and traditional raised access flooring, also known as raised computer flooring, are both types of flooring systems used in commercial and data center environments. While they serve similar purposes, the two have some key differences.

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
