Abstract

A raised floor structure for a computer room conventionally has an array of leveling jacks, a grid that is supported by the jacks, and floor tiles that are held by the grid. In the system described here, the grid is partly in the form of a trough that is adapted to hold small conductors such as optical fiber cables. The trough sections are located along the desired wiring paths, and a conventional grid structure may be used elsewhere.
