The Differences Between Anti-Static Raised Floor and OA Network Floor | Huiya Raised Access Floor System

2019/8/27 18:27:49

Whether it is anti-static floor or OA floor, it belongs to the raised access flooring systems, and also needs to meet the installation of anti-static places. But the anti-static raised floor and the OA raised floor will be essentially different. In this article, let’s talk about the differences between these two floors by looking at their definition, benefits and performances, applications, structure, surface finishes.

1. Definition of the Two Raised Access Flooring Systems

Anti-static Access Floor Definition

What is Anti-static Access Floor?

Anti-static Raised Floor, also known as ESD Raised Access Floor (including conductive and dissipative systems, which offer different ranges of electrical resistance), is a kind of access flooring that allows the charge to be dissipated when it is grounded or connected to any lower potential point, with a resistance of 10 to 5 to 10 of 9 The characteristics between the secondary ohms are characteristic. In general, conductive flooring offers a resistance of up to 1 mega Ω, and static dissipative flooring provides resistance between 1 mega Ω and 100 mega Ω. China "GB50174-2008 Electronic Information System Room Design Specification", page 20, section 8.3.1, specifies that the surface resistance or volume resistance of the anti-static floor or floor should be 2.5×104~1.0×109Ω. Anti-static raised floors inhibit the generation of electrostatic discharge or ESD, which is the pulse of static electricity that happens when a charged person or surface comes into contact with another object.

OA Network Floor Definition

What is OA Raised Floor?

OA Intelligent Network Floor is the access flooring system specially designed to adapt to convenient network wiring & cabling management in modern offices. It solves many of the vexing issues of designers caused by the traditional floor and pre-embedded wiring in the wall. OA Network Floor adapts to the specific requirements of the information automation technology in the intelligent building, so that the operating systems and control systems are effectively linked, the effectiveness of office automation is high, the office environment is more comfortable, clean, beautiful, efficient, convenient and flexible.

2. Benefits and Performances of the Two Raised Access Flooring Systems

What is the benefits of Anti-static Raised Foor?

The anti-static technology of the computer room is part of the security and protection of the computer room. The problem caused by static electricity is not only difficult for hardware personnel to detect, but sometimes it leads to software personnel to mistakenly think that it is a software failure, which is resulting in work confusion. In addition, when static electricity is discharged through a human body to a computer or other device (so-called fire), when the energy reaches a certain level, it also gives people a feeling of electric shock (for example, when touching a computer monitor or a chassis), so an electrostatic discharge can be highly dangerous and potentially even catastrophic. In those cases, installing anti-static flooring is an essential step in creating a safe environment for workers and visitors.

Note: After the anti-static floor is laid, it must be grounded with anti-static grounding and connected to protect the resistance box, otherwise it will not be able to prevent static electricity.

OA Network Floor Features

What is the benefits of OA Raised Foor?

Low height, easy installation, natural formation of wiring slots, and more space saving than traditional raised floor. The carpet floor or other surface layer needs to be laid on the network floor, which is suitable for office space such as office buildings.

3. Applications of the Two Raised Access Flooring Systems

Where To Use Anti-static Access Flooring System?

Computer Industry: Anti-static raised floor is mainly used in computer room, data processing center, laboratory, microwave communication station room, program-controlled telephone exchange room, mobile communication room, satellite ground station room, radio control room, TV transmitter control room, broadcast control room, monitoring Machine room, central control room, etc.

Microelectronics Industry: Anti-static access floor have a wide range of applications in the microelectronics industry. They are used in the assembly of electronic components, semiconductors, electronic products and large-scale, ultra-large-scale integrated circuits, to avoid the static movement of the human body in the workshop. Control electrostatic discharge to computer communication, various types of electronic equipment and damage to static sensitive devices, to prevent damage inside computer memory and electronic equipment.

Other applications of the raised floor system: Used for static-sensitive munitions, inflammable and explosive places and petrochemical workshops and hospital operating rooms, anesthesia rooms, oxygen bar rooms and other places with anti-static requirements.

OA Network Raised Access Floor Application

Where To Use OA Raised Flooring System?

Due to the characteristics of the network floor, it overcomes the defects of the existing floor cable solution, and is well adapted to the requirements of fast network changes, multiple access ports, high and low writing floors, anti-static, and flame retardant requirements. Therefore, it is very suitable for large office buildings, computer rooms, intelligent buildings, securities halls, government agencies, financial institutions, scientific research institutions, broadcasting centers, post and telecommunications, communication sites, telecommunications teaching, advertising printing, conference centers, media production, commercial websites. , power transportation, etc., its application will certainly promote the further development of high-tech technology.

4. Structure of the Two Raised Access Flooring Systems

Anti-static Access Floor Structure

The surface of the ESD raised floor is coated with anti-static finish, which is composed of panels, pedestal and stringer. For example, all-steel ESD raised floor, its panel is made of hard SPCC steel plate, upper and lower steel plate stamping and spot welding forming, the outer surface is sprayed and treated by phosphating, and the middle hollow shell is filled with foamed cement. After curing, a stable bearing structure is formed and its upper surface is coated with high wear-resistant HPL anti-static covering. 

OA Network Raised Floor Structure

OA network floor is bare panel, which is composed of panels and pedestal. For example, OA all-steel network floor is made of high-quality cold-rolled steel plate by stamping, drawing and spot welding. The steel shell is phosphatized and then epoxy sprayed. The inner cavity is filled with high-strength foamed cement and the corners are locked with angle lock.

5. Surface Covering of the Two Raised Access Flooring Systems

Anti-static Raised Floor Covering & Finish

HPL or PVC anti-static veneer is directly attached to the floor surface.

OA Access Floor Covering & Finish

After the OA network floor is installed, the surface is pasted with carpet or magnetic PVC.

Since the main functions of the anti-static floor and the OA network floor are the same, but the respective processing techniques and the market prices are different, it is recommended that consumers in the purchase process should preferably choose and buy Raised Floor according to the actual needs.
