Simplifying the term raised flooring is created to add the void or space between the flooring and the actual ground level. It is used in many different buildings, from airports to office blocks, hospitals to shopping centres with a number of benefits, mainly for access, but also to hide any undulations that might occur.

Service buildings also need raised flooring to gain access so that telecoms, data, electrical power, environmental control and air conditioning, as well as water and drainage, and security teams can get to their respective areas to maintain, fix and manage.

Other benefits to raised flooring: Easy and quick access to data cabling. A cavity depth allows an HVAC system to be utilised so that a quality air conditioning system can be implemented, and it means less hassle or time also money

Types of raised flooring: There are basically two categories of raising flooring; lock down or gravity held. Loose lay, or gravity held, raised flooring stay in place using gravity and their own weight. These are super quick to lay and allow simple and easy access to the void. Lock down or screws down floors are exactly what they sound like. They’re screwed down and locked so that lateral location is provided. These cannot take factory bonded finishes, but allow for a solid feel underfoot and easy access but not as quick as loose lay.

Industries uses raised flooring: Retail facilities, modern offices that need a large amount of telecom and computing equipment, call centres, offices, data processing centres, distribution centres, educational facilities, in fact most places that need underfloor cabling and routing of ventilation when ceiling based voids cannot be used as effectively or smartly.
