How do I maximise the use of a Raised
The access floor system (floor panels and
support pedestals) creates a space between the floor slab
and the underside of the access floor. This space is where
you can cost-effectively run any of your building services.
These services consist of electric power, data, telecom/voice,
environmental control and air conditioning, fire detection
and suppression, security, etc.
The access floor panels are designed to be removable from
their support so that ‘access’ to underfloor services is fast
and easy. Access holes are made in the floor to allow services
to terminate at floor level using hinged lid termination boxes,
or ‘pass-thru’ the floor panels into the working space of
the building area.
