Green Building Solutions with Access Floors
Access floors create energy savings, less waste and reduced costs. With air distribution managed under the access flooring, your facilities have the ability to deliver improved personal thermal comfort control, better acoustics, enhanced ventilation effectiveness and improved indoor air quality.
The unique design of certain panels minimises air leakage, reducing heat loss when the underfloor void is used as an air plenum – the ideal choice for low energy buildings.
With underfloor distribution of power, voice, cabling and HVAC services, access floors enable a cost effective integration of building components including structure, lighting, furniture and wall systems. This imparts a great deal of flexibility to infrastructure systems so that you can respond quickly and economically to organisational changes, expansion due to growth, adapting to new technologies and integrating new communication tools.
Our Environmental Policy
The Raised Access Flooring Company invests considerable time in ensuring our supply chain is efficient, cost effective and responsible.
Through our network of carefully selected suppliers and manufacturers, predominantly from the UK, we are able to keep costs low without compromising on quality. A high proportion of raw materials are sourced from within the UK, the high density particle board core in panels uses 90% recycled material which together with a quantity of recycled steel helps achieve our objective of using natural resources within sustainable limits. Our main manufacturer uses all waste chipboard and chipboard dust in their biomass burner to heat the factory thus purchasing virtually no fossil fuel for heating.
We are committed to responsible sourcing and use renewable, sustainable materials wherever possible. We have a pro-active approach and our policies are constantly reviewed, monitored and communicated.
Durable and providing long-term service access floors are easy to install and maintain.
Our environmental policy is communicated to all members of our organisation, so that they are fully aware of our key objectives, and of their roles and responsibilities in achieving them.
Our workers are provided with adequate information regarding environmental aspects and impacts associated with their particular roles and responsibilities.
