Tate products are engineered and manufactured to exact tolerances in their fully owned manufacturing facilities located in United States. Tate facilities are ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 quality and environmental management certified. All Tate products go through rigorous independently certified testing in compliance with CISCA testing procedures. In addition, Tate performs all tests to international norms which require whole system tests using understructure rather than panel only tests.
Tate follows Six Sigma methodology to increase performance and quality assurance. It’s R&D team is constantly examining the latest manufacturing technologies and materials to improve future product offerings. As a result of Tate’s dedication to quality our panels feature many attributes not found with any other panel types or manufactures.
|Quiet & solid underfoot with a flex of only .025″ under a 200lb load. Tate access floors have a room to room sound transmission of 53 NNIC.|
|All Tate Steel welded panels provide a minimum safety factor of 2. Design loads are equal to or above concentrated load ratings. Quiet & solid underfoot with a flex of only .025″ under a 200lb load. Tate access floors have a room to room sound transmission of 53 NNIC.|
|System yields gradually for built in safety – eliminates the risk of instantaneous catistrophic failures in the office environment.|
Panel Strength Options*
|5 interchangeable panel strengths, meet all the requirements of a modern office building without adjustments.|
|System maintains design load strength when cut.|
|Die cut edges reduce panel gaps (.015” +/- .005). Reduces air leakage and make it predictable for commissioning purposes, a requirement when identifying the tightness of an underfloor plenum. (see plenum integrity guides for more information).|
Clean Air Plenum*
|Painted steel panels with tight seams minimize dust and debris entering the air delivery plenum through panel gaps.|
|Attaches to pedestals maintaining underfloor access. Adjustable to meet any width requirement.|
