    This is the most popular color choice for a raised floor system. Because of its popularity, delivery is immediate on most floor systems. The white background is complimented by swirls of light gray. This pattern effectively hides surface dust extremely well.

    It has been the standard color for computer room floors for over 30 years. Many designer colors have come and gone through the years, however, Grey Starlite has a constant presence, which is something to be considered down the line when replacement panels become an issue. Some other names for this color are: Gray Twirl, Gray Ripple, Raised Floor Ripple and Gray Tone. The high pressure laminate is available in two thickness' 1/16" and 1/8". The standard color edge trim with these panels is black. It's light reflective value is 73.2%.

  • White Mellowtone 2 - MT-7-2

    This replaces White Mellowtone 1. It is misleading that the factory has chosen to name this color with the same name because it is not compatible with the original White Mellotone MT-7-1 laminate. This new product has a whiter background so it will not match your existing panels.

    This dark gray color looks like wet concrete with pinpoint spots in black. It is widely used in very dark control rooms. It shouldn't be used in high traffic environments where sand is around the area. Sand brought into the room will actually scratch this color off the top resulting in white wear patterns. Caster chairs and poor housekeeping habits will ruin this floor surface. When selecting Gray Matrix, make sure the area will be low traffic and needs to stay very dark. It's light reflective value is one of the lowest of all color choices at 33.8%. Black edge trim is used with Gray Matrix.

    Natural Bamboo. This is the hottest color to hit the market in some time. But proceed with caution - - we discourage selecting this color for a data center. Designer colors such as this one probably won't be available in 5 to 7 years when searching for replacement tiles. Stick with Grey Starlite to insure replacement availability.
