Decor : Raised access floors, the solution for large spaces
At present, when buildings are built, especially those for offices, it is essential to have that they will be places where the installation of all kinds of supplies has to be finely thought out and calculated. The raised technical floors offer the possibility of taking care of the aesthetics of the space by hiding these facilities under it.
Raised technical floor is the name of a type of pavement that consists of modular tiles or tiles that rest on a structure of galvanized steel legs. The pedestals that support the raised access floor are height-adjustable to meet the needs of each surface. And the panels are homogeneous and independent, to be able to interchange them.
One of the most outstanding advantages of raised access floor is that it is a constructive system that allows the placement of different installations such as electricity, for example, under the pavement, thus avoiding masonry works.
In addition, the raised access floor system offers high-design, elegant and high-quality solutions and finishes compatible with the current canons of architecture and interior decoration.
Advantages of a raised access floor
The installation of a raised access floor considerably reduces the construction time of the project. In addition, the slight rise in the raised floor allows take advantage of the resulting bass between the work floor and this installation, called a plenum, to carry out any necessary installation, without having to carry out pavement lifting work or screwing the walls.
Another of the benefits it offers is that you can access the building’s facilities from anywhere in the building, avoiding, when there are problems with the electricity supply or with water pipes, having to lift the entire masonry pavement. Likewise, the raised access floor system allows air conditioning to be installed in the openings or plenum, which will increase the energy efficiency of the building. At the same time, if the panels to be installed are perforated, air recirculation is promoted.
Vivid and versatile spaces
If the living room or room in which this floor is housed changes function (such as, for example, the change of location of workstations in an office) it is easily removable to change the place facilities and adapt them to their new use. Precisely in offices or places where work spaces are open, it allows these spaces to be distributed in the most appropriate way, thanks to the use of electrical connection boxes embedded in the ground, with the consequent benefit that there are no cables on the ground , and also creating a safe work environment.
The resistance of the tiles admits important loads, being able to rest on the same heavy equipment without the need for other supports. Likewise, the maintenance of this floor is very simple since the tiles are modular and can be changed independently in case of breakage without affecting the neighboring tiles. This property supposes a cheaper and faster maintenance than that of a conventional floor.
Outstanding aesthetic properties
Another of the most outstanding advantages is that it is technical floor design, since adapts to the latest in interior design with finishes that resemble granite, porcelain, PVC, carpet or wood laminate. Thus, making it very easy to accommodate any decorative style in the furniture and interior decoration of the building.
Last but not least, it is also necessary to take into account that these soils are made from recycled materials. A commitment to the environment that helps the building obtain Green Certifications (sustainable building) or LEED.
