Raised Access Flooring for Offices
What is Raised Access Flooring for Offices?
The RAF system from Butech is a type of raised technical flooring for projects where you need easy access to the services housed beneath the floor and also an easy and quick piece replacement. Indoor use. This type of flooring consists of a panel with ceramic covering and a galvanized steel frame.
Raised Access Flooring Structure
The whole structure is made of galvanized steel, with no aluminum parts to meet fire protection standards. It consists of pedestals and optional reinforcement stringers.
- Pedestals are the system support, on which RAF panels are laid, and determine the flooring height. For a better fitting of the RAF piece, a semi-rigid plastic joint is installed. Pedestals are bonded to the substrate with polyurethane putty.
- Medium stringers with longitudinal nerves have an open section and are designed to improve the RAF mechanical resistance and to ease piece replacement. The stringers are screwed to pedestals to improve the system stability and resistance.
