Advanced Structures Corp. is a trusted manufacturer of Navy false deck panels, as well as false floors for use for the Navy and Coast Guard. A false floor is also known as a raised floor, access floor or raised access computer floor. This structure provides an elevated floor above what is usually a concrete slab in order to create a hidden passageway for wires and cables. Having a false floor is perfect for command centers, IT data center, and computer rooms, because they are specifically designed to help the flow of wires and cables and keep them under the floor. This way, the walkways are not cluttered with cables. Instead, they are organized neatly below.
False Floor Benefits
Installing a false floor provides the user with an array of helpful benefits.These can range from the flexibility of installation, a cooling efficiency and providing aesthetic attributes.
Installation Flexibility: One of the benefits is the fact that it can be installed at different height levels. The height can vary and be anywhere from 2 inches to 4 feet to fit whatever needs to be accommodated. If the structure is raised enough for a person to walk, or even crawl under, then additional lighting and structural support is required in order to ensure everyone's safety. Some other benefits includes efficient cooling of the area, as well as the aesthetic attributes it provides for the room as a whole.
Cooling Efficiency: Another benefit of a false floor is the fact that you can cool buildings with it. This underfloor air distribution system is becoming a more common way to ventilate air through a building. A plenum chamber is used to distribute the conditioned air and perforated tiles are typically placed beneath to direct this air straight to computer sites and data centers and is an efficient way to cool these rooms that have a lot of expensive equipment. To increase efficiency, the computing equipment itself is usually designed to draw cooling air from below and exhaust into the room. In the final step of this system, an air conditioning unit then draws the air from the room, cools it, and forces it below the raised floor. This completes the air cycle.
Aesthetic Attributes: And though it provides worthwhile benefits that help day-to-day operations, it can also be aesthetically pleasing. That may not be as practical of a reason to upgrade, but it still has its warrants. It can boost morale by upgrading the look and feel of the ship. Old, outdated versions can simply look old and outdated. Crew members will get this sense as well and can lead to a dreary work day. By updating your false floors, you will be updating the ship as well. The aesthetics can be modified to your pleasing. Have them designed and decorated to suit your specific needs. There are a wide range of ways for them to be tailor-made to fit your exact requirements. Not all false floors need to be dull. They can look nice and still be highly functional.
