What is it? A unique design of cable management and raised floor system that is ideally used where there is limited floor to ceiling or void space. With a 2mm steel panel that is supported on space frame metal pedestal at 125mm centres it is perfect for applications where space is at a premium. This means that Intercell gives a 55mm floor void on a 60mm FFH

Intercell at 60mm and higher can accommodate floorboxes to give true flexibility

Where is it used? Intercell has been used in many 1960’s commercial office buildings where raised floors were not part of the original building concept.

What Grades? One grade, which is for office duty loadings

What Heights? 40mm (gives a 35mm clear void), 60mm (55mm void) and 90mm (85mm void)

It can be used bare to create exciting spaces or with a carpet tile overlay to give a solid feel underfoot. It is a market leading product in the USA where many transatlantic clients want to utilise TecCretes unique characteristics in their UK facilities and installations

What Heights? 76mm Finished floor height (FFH) to 1000mm FFH

What is it? These systems are often called screed replacement as they offer the possibility of having raised floors with a fully interlocking calcium sulphate panel that is the perfect non accessible substrate for most architectural finishes, such as stone, ceramic, timber, rubber and vinyls.

Infinite possibility of pedestal heights mean this is the ideal choice where multiple finishes may abut one another and lots of changes of levels are required

Different panel thicknesses can be used for a variety of finishes, and range from 28mm thick single layer to 50mm double layer.

Where is it used? Wherever hard finishes are wanted on a raised floor platform. Often used in adjacent areas with traditional raised access floor systems where a carpet tile is laid or in public spaces such as airports, retail or restaurant spaces.

What Grades? A range of grades are available that covers light, medium and heavy duty loading capabilities

What Heights? 80mm Finished floor height (FFH) to up to 1500mm FFH

Our works – TFA originally supplied and installed 20,000 sqm of Intercell throughout this building in 2009. The client is undertaking a major refurbishment and remodelling of this building and TFA have been working with the new fitout contractor, Overbury Plc to carry out alterations and adaptions to the retained Intercell floor. Shell Tower is such a good example of why Intercell is such a fantastic product as it allowed for a raised floor to be installed in a building which had been constructed before raised floors were seen as the essential part of such a building as they are now

Economist Plaza, London SW1

Our works – This keynote building was completed in 1964 and is considered an example of Britain's post war brutalist architecture. When it was designed and built raised floors were not widely used and consequently its floor to ceilings heights leave little room to modernise the building and add a traditional raised floor. The refurbishment has cleverly incorporated space for a 40mm high Intercell cable management system which TFA are supplying and installing in both the main commercial tower and parts of the adjacent residential building. Intercell offer new tenants flexibility to position services away from perimeter trunking runs and gives them a 35mm cable void with just a 40mm finished floor height. Unique solutions for some of our countries iconic 60’s buildings!
