The Raised Access Flooring for interiors is a system that was born from the need to hide the large number of installations such as telephone and electricity wiring, piping, air conditioning, etc… that are located in work areas, technical rooms, etc… These installations are hidden under the system, as a “technical plenum” has been created with immediate and easy accessibility. It also lets us carry all the installations neatly.
The use of raised access floor is highly recommended in those areas where there are a large number of elements running under the floor, with the advantage of having an easy and immediate accessibility. Commercial applications: offices, libraries, museums, schools, shopping centres, etc. Technical applications: telecommunications/electricity plants, control rooms, laboratories, data centres, etc.
- Ability to hide away all types of ugly and dangerous cables, pipes etc under the floor. Improved installation efficiency in comparison to conventional floors (installation rate of about 40 m2/day).
- Easy to take with you when relocating offices.
- Option of rerouting services following installation of floor.
- Clean installation without the use of cement, avoiding the production of debris, dust, noise, etc.
- Able to withstand a high mechanical load.
- The potential for combining different structures, as required in each particular case.
- It has an excellent reaction to fire under laboratory testing.
- It has very low dimensional tolerances, which allow for a perfect exchange of panels.
- Cores made of high-performance materials with very high densities.
- Compliance with UNE EN ISO 9001, guaranteeing quality controls during each stage of the manufacturing process.
- On the top surface, any 60 x 60 ceramic tile by Porcelanosa or other non-ceramic coverings (plastic laminate, linoleum, vinyl, granite, aluminium, steel, carpet, parquet etc) can be used.
- The pieces are protected by a plastic material edging, in order to prevent the tiles from spalling.
- A wide range of complementary products to ensure a good finish.
Panels with chipboard core: They are made of chipboard with a high-performance resin binder. Available in a thickness of 38mm, they feature an aluminum, galvanized steel or plastic lower covering, thus offering slightly different properties to suit each individual case. The panels have a plastic surround to prevent the edges from breaking.
Panels with calcium sulfate core: It consists of a mineral soul of a single layer based on calcium sulfate of high density. Available in 30 mm thicknesses and with lower coating of aluminum or galvanized steel. As in the wood panels, the perimeter of all the panels has a plastic surround to prevent the edges from breaking.
Panels with ceramic core: Formed by a core of high-density inert and inorganic material. Available in thickness of 15 mm. As in the wood and sulphate panels, the perimeter of all panels is trimmed with plastic in order to prevent parts from peeling. Ideal material for wet areas and/or humid areas as it is non-absorbent (water absorption of 0.05%).
- 60 x 60: Available in porcelain finish (any 59,6 x 59,6cm floor tile from PORCELANOSA Group) or non-ceramic, such as vinyl, plastic laminate, carpet, linoleum, etc.
- 58 x 120: Porcelain finish. Each panel contains 3 PAR-KER tiles ( format 19,3 x 120 cm ) from PORCELANOSA Group.
The structure is made up of pedestals and stringers, which support the floor covering and ensure the necessary height and rigidness.
Pedestals: 100% galvanised steel structure. This pedestals dictate the floor height according to the project requirements. Each pedestal incorporates a series of plastic noise-reduction heads fitted with four positioning lugs.
One of the main advantages of the pedestal system is that it is fitted with a 14 mm threaded bolt that can be adjusted to accommodate different floor height requirements.
Stringers: Like the pedestals, the stringers are made entirely of galvanised steel. Their main function is to increase the strength of the floor. They are covered with special noise-reduction strips.
From the point of view of performance, it presents a high resistance to bending vertical load and / or eccentric, thanks to a screwed bolt M16 section, a tube of diameter 20 mm of thickness of 2 mm, internally calibrated to obtain a coupling with smaller tolerances and therefore less spaces and a direct connection between the screwed bolt of the disc base and tube, without need of interposing deformable plastic elements.
Depending on the configuration of both the panel and the structure, we can achieve a resistance to static loads up to 4.400 kg/m2.
