What is Recessed Floor Box?

Floor box, as per Wikipedia, is defined as “A box set into the floor of an office etc., offering multiple electrical sockets.”

These floor boxes come under various names and are also called floorbox, underfloor service box, access floor outlet box, floor access outlet box, raised floor access unit, underfloor access unit or inscreed floor service box for concrete and so on.

Various Floor boxes are available in the market and are usually made of powder coated GI (Galvanized iron) with plastic frame. The electrical floor box cover is usually a recessed trap for some flooring material like carpet. Floor box sizes are, however, limited to certain standard sizes and electrical socket layouts. This severely limits the application and usage in interiors.

Floor box – Integral to Cable Management Systems – Raised floor and Underfloor Trunking

Contemporary open plan office layouts and modern buildings require a versatile arrangement of services for easy installation and flexibility in use. Thus, underfloor trunking with floor box outlets are used for distribution in commercial and other establishments like offices and industries. These recessed Floor boxes provide easy access outlet for tapping electrical and data connections at various places like workstations in offices etc. distributed over the floor plate.

Underfloor Cable Management Systems are most common. Here, floor trunking is laid on the structural slab prior to the screed being poured. The trunking are buried under the screed and only floor boxes are flushed to the final finish floor level.

Raised or False Floor Trunking system is practiced in good open office system layouts due to its flexibility and versatility. The trunking or the floor raceways are laid on the structural slab under raised floor tiles and service outlets are flushed on the raised floor tile surface. It gives flexibility of changing the service floor access outlet locations as per new requirement modification.
