We have them too where I work there is a space of about 18" below them where
we run all the cables .
They're not too tight -fitting but you need a double suction cup device to
lift them. Some of the tiles - in the posher areas- are top-lined with
carpet instead of lineoleum. Metal edges and supported on all four corners
by metal pillars.
