Unitile's Raised Access Floor System is carefully fitted with Unitile's Topstone Floor Panels, which are designed to withstand extreme weight and pressure. Unitile's Topstone access
floor panels (600x600mm) comprise of customer selected Vitrified or any Natural Stones tiles which are factory bonded to the steel cementitious access floor panel with propriety
admixed glue to ensure perfect bonding of two different substrate.
The edges of the tile and the panel are protected with a sleek, visually appealing PVC edged trim with engineered degree to ensure protection of the stoned edges on all four sides. The edged trim is thermostatically factory bonded with high strength heat resistance adhesive to minimize detachment.
