When searching for construction models, there is one type of flooring that might come into your mind. And this would possibly be a raised floor system. Raised flooring system or also known as access flooring is an elevated floor system that is built on a building’s original or reinforced concrete slab.

Want to learn more about this structural floor? Then, read on and discover its benefits.



A raised floor system is generally available in two types, namely the traditional or standard access floor and the low-profile access floor. To determine the type of raised floor system for your building, you’ll need to consider its application type, cooling system, and cabling needs.

Will you use the system in data centers or industrial sites? Or do your cabling needs cover routing, flexibility, and distribution?

The good thing about access flooring is that it can be maintained and designed with floor pullers & brackets, high airflow panels, and smoke & sprinkler detector labels. Floor pullers provide a strong and safe grip while brackets facilitate easy access. On the other hand, high airflow panels allow sufficient air to cool your high-density equipment. And the smoke & sprinkler detector labels are strategically placed in the access floor facilities to easily identify underfloor smoke.



Now that you have an overview of the raised floor system, it’s time to explore its benefits.

Low-profile raised access flooring is typically used in modern offices, call centers, command centers, classrooms, and libraries. Some of its benefits are:

  • It’s movable and customizable.
  • It improves cleanliness and safety.
  • It maximizes vertical space.

Movable and customizable. Raised floor system comes in modular and lightweight components. And because of this feature, it can be easily moved or added to according to the needs of your building or office. So, if you need to expand or update your operation, it can be quickly done without spending too much renovation expenses.

Cleanliness and safety. Whether your business is the usual corporate office or a call center, safety will always be a priority. With low-profile raised access flooring, you’ll no longer have to worry about troublesome and loose wires and cables. Since a raised floor system conceals them, tripping hazards are prevented.

Other benefits of a raised flooring system are easy access, a better look, flexible to changes, and easy to fix.



A raised floor system can be beneficial to your building. And to guarantee its benefits, it is important that you follow the correct installation procedure. You’ll need the right materials and tools for installing it, such as a rubber hammer, metal spatula, measuring tape, laser level, arc saw, professional drill, and more. Moreover, workers who will install it must wear at all times the appropriate personal protective equipment. They should use safety glasses, wear safety boots, and equip themselves with hearing protection, helmet, cloth glove, and more.

And if there are things you are not sure about, don’t hesitate to consult an expert. It is always best to be guided by a professional or an expert to prevent any damage or accident.
