Tate's Composite Board Panel

Composite board panels are comprised of a strong composite board. The composite board is laminated to a E-coated steel bottom sheet for unparalleled strength compared to competitor equivalents. This panel also provides a smoother surface that is more conducive to the lamination of soft tile finishes. The tapered edge of the composite board panel allows for easy accessibility to underfloor components, all while creating a near seamless appearance. Composite board panels are engineered to meet Tate Standards per CISCA testing methods.

System Performance

Tate Standards to CISCA Testing Requirements

System Performance Criteria (Tested on Actual Understructure*)

      Static Loads   Rolling Loads    
Panel Understructure Design Loads1 Minimum
Ultimate Loads
Safety Factor
(min 2.0)2
10 Passes 10,000 Passes Impact Loads
Composite Board Bolted Stringer 5.6kN 11.1kN PASS 4.4kN 3.6kN 0.6kN

*All tests are performed using CISCA's Recommended Test Procedures for Access Floos with the exception of Design Load

1. System Design Load is based on permanent set ≤ 0.010” and is verified by loading panels in accordance with the CISCA concentrated load method but with panels installed on actual understructure instead of steel blocks. (Testing on blocks does not represent performance of an actual installation.) Ultimate, Rolling, and Impact Load tests are performed using CISCA Test Procedures.
2. Safety Factor is Ultimate Load divided by Design Load.
