Regardless of whether you are building a home using conventional
methods or incorporating green builiding design principles, you
need utility access for electrical, data and mechanical services.
One of the best ways to do this is by using a 'Raised Floor'.
Raised floors allow all utilities to be distributed in the floors,
requiring the minimum length of cable and materials.
Raised floors have long been used in commercial buildings, but
they can also be used effectively in home construction. They provide
both economy and flexibility for the changing needs of growing families.
For instance, fresh air can be supplied through raised floor systems,
with air supply outlets easily located in each room delivering air
with optimum efficiency and allowing occupants to control their
own temperature and fresh air supply. By supplying air at low level,
the air rises naturally and can be extracted in the ceiling.
Giving occupants control over their environment has been identified
as a key factor in reducing sick building syndrome.
Smarthouse and Comms Systems
Raised floors also provide ready access to the ever developing
smart house technology and communication systems.
