In the past, I had a conversation with one of our customers about office raised floors. It seems to me that he is unable to differentiate between the various floors. To begin, let me talk about the raised floors in the office:Encapsulated wood core raised floor, calcium sulfate raised floor, and steel cement raised floor are the three types of raised floors that can be encapsulated. The surroundings should also be pleasant in terms of cleanliness, aesthetic appeal, functionality, convenience, and adaptability. The horizontal wiring of the room's power cords, data voice lines, and other components has become jumbled and complicated as a result of the proliferation of office automation equipment. It has brought a great deal of unfavorable effects to the office environments of today. The capacity of the wire duct, on the other hand, as well as its location, will remain unchanged as the building is developed. It is not suitable for rewiring or switching lines, and the process of construction is also made more difficult by using this material. During the building process, the construction can only be finished successfully if the department of civil construction works together with the construction crew.
Office raised floor, also known as network floor, is a product that is suitable for solving the problem of large-open office equipment, additional wiring in the room, complex wiring, and significant changes in the office environment. It is also advantageous in that it can be wired in a flexible manner, saves space, does not require maintenance, is cost-effective, and is practical. This significantly enhances the atmosphere of today's modern offices and provides individuals with a sense of elegance as well as comfort. It is possible to build it according to the specifications of the building form, and it is also possible to cut it and put it together for unique building forms to meet the requirements of the environment in terms of aesthetics.
Different types of raised floors found in offices
The network floor is a type of raised floor, and the surface of the floor does not have veneer pasted onto it
It is well adapted to the requirements of rapid network changes, multiple in and out ports, and flame retardancy; however, it does not have any particular requirements for anti-static properties
The emergence of the network floor has made it possible to overcome the shortcomings of the floor cable solutions that are currently in use
As a result, it is appropriate for use in large office buildings and intelligent office environments, as well as OA classrooms, places requiring overhead, and environments that are dustproof and waterproof
We can categorize it as either an encapsulated wood core raised floor, an encapsulated calcium sulfate raised floor, or a bare finish steel raised floor, depending on the material that was used to construct it
Differences between office raised floors and other types of flooring
The following is derived from the steel cement raised floor material:
It is constructed out of a high-quality cold-rolled steel plate, which is then stretched and formed before being reinforced by spot welding, having its surface phosphated, and having epoxy resin sprayed on it. The cavity of the floor is filled with foamed cement, and there are corner keyholes cut into each of the four corners of the panel. The flooring in our offices is steel cement, and we also refer to it as bare finish raised floor. There are three distinct dimensions to choose from. One measures 500 millimeters on each side, and it is 28 millimeters thick. The other one is 600 millimeters on each side and has a thickness of 33 millimeters; this size is utilized in the majority of regions throughout the world. This is the typical sizing for Americans.
High-strength natural gypsum powder is the primary component of calcium sulfate substrate. This powder, which uses plant fiber as a reinforcing material, is solidified into calcium sulfate crystals, and is then pulsed and pressed. As much as 97% of the Titan calcium sulfate substrate, which consists of calcium sulfate and vegetable cellulose, can be recycled. There are two different dimensions available, 500mm*500mm and 600mm*600mm, and the thickness can be either 25mm or 30mm. The panel is constructed like a sandwich, with calcium sulfate board serving as the middle layer and galvanizing steel serving as the top and bottom layers. The steel is riveted on all four sides.
The appearance of wood core encapsulated panels is identical to that of calcium sulfate encapsulated panels, as are the production process and the equipment used for making both types of panels. Galvanized steel that has been hot-dipped completely encases the wood ware that has been encapsulated. A high-density chipboard is used as the interior core, and the top and bottom steel sheets are pressed and riveted together. The wood core encapsulated panel that we produce has dimensions of 600 millimeters by 600 millimeters and a thickness of 30 millimeters. The majority of locations make use of the aluminum head pedestal. The aluminum head has a rigid structure, and a plastic gasket serves as a buffer at the very top of the head. The side of the panel that has been cut away can be placed directly on the head. In most cases, the ratio of pedestals with flat heads to those with aluminum heads is 8 to 2. Both the calcium sulfate and the wood core encapsulated panel pedestals are the same, and the top of each pedestal features plastic gaskets that act as a buffer for the structure. In the border region, take off the top gasket and position it so that the cut side is facing the head.
Since the raised height of office flooring is typically between 100 and 300 millimeters, using pedestals alone is sufficient. However, if the height is significant, we will need to make use of a stringer in order to make the system more stable. In addition, the price of raised office floors is not the same as it was before. When compared to the cost of galvanized steel plate, the price of stainless steel plate is unquestionably more affordable. The cost of foamed cement is unquestionably going to be significantly higher than the cost of calcium sulfate substrate. The calcium sulfate Concrete Raised Floor Panels is the heaviest, so the transportation cost is naturally the highest; however, because it is the lightest raised floor option, the wood core raised floor has the lowest transportation cost.
Considerations to make when selecting office raised floors
The term "office raised flooring" refers to a type of flooring that is typically installed in office buildings, meeting rooms, and other locations where wiring is required. In most cases, it is utilized with square carpets. As a result, raised floors can be chosen in accordance with the customer's financial constraints.
When subjected to the same conditions, the steel raised floor has a potential service life of between 5 and 10 years. When selecting a floor for your network, an encapsulated calcium sulfate raised floor is a good option to go with if your requirements for the floor's service life are particularly stringent. As a result, the weight of the raised floor is of utmost significance. In this scenario, we have the option of selecting a Modular Polyamide Carpet with a lighter encapsulated wood core make an order of game. In terms of visual presentation, the encapsulated wood core raised floor and the encapsulated calcium sulfate raised floor are identical.
