Gridd raised floors allow companies to change the layout of their work environment and reroute wiring efficiently to meet growing demands, adapt to new technologies, or to respond to the need for social distancing.

As companies pivot business operations and work to make work environments safer due to COVID-19, companies like FreeAxez are seeing demand increase for raised access flooring because of its ability to reconfigure workspaces without the need for additional construction.

FreeAxez is the manufacturer of Gridd®, a low-profile raised access floor system used for flexible design and building cable management. Unlike traditional raised floors that must be affixed to the building, Gridd is constructed of all steel plates that do not require tools or fasteners. The plates are held together by gravity, which means as building needs change, the floor can easily change with it.

Coronavirus pandemic forces companies to adapt quickly

Companies and governments everywhere are struggling with the need to remain open while keeping employees safe. Government mandates and CDC guidelines are changing so fluidly, that without the right system in place to make changes, the complexity of enabling social distancing at work and responding to new rules is more than a balancing act — it’s a tightrope between safety and business continuity.

The ability to adapt is what the strongest companies are demonstrating right now. Forbes ranked how well the 100 largest employers among U.S. public companies mobilized to meet the challenges of the coronavirus. Half of the top 25 companies ranked in Forbes’ Corporate Response Tracker are FreeAxez clients, which is not surprising considering the Gridd system is a raised floor designed to enable facility managers to reconfigure their layout quickly, adapt to changes and reconfigure their flooring layout in as little as a weekend.

The company’s high profile client list — which includes Google, Netflix and every branch of the U.S. military, along with countless other government offices — have relied on Gridd to adapt their buildings to reconfigure their space as needs arise.

“Gridd raised floors allow companies to change the layout of their work environment and reroute wiring efficiently to meet growing demands or adapt to new technologies,” says CEO Earl Geertgens.

Now, more than ever, companies are seeing the need for a system that allows their facilities to adapt not only to new technology, but to the COVID-19 pandemic. FreeAxez’ Gridd Raised Flooring System was developed to future-proof buildings for new technology and to allow flexibility in the built environment. It’s now helping reconfigure buildings (and businesses) to allow for social distancing and safe workplaces.
