Granitech: Practical benefits of raised floors

Open spaces, shops, showrooms, offices and meeting rooms are continually changing spaces in which surfaces are constantly subject to stress and structural changes.
Every designer plans these spaces knowing that they will almost certainly be subject to alterations both large and small over the years, which can cause considerable inconvenience in view of their commercial and representative function.
With future maintenance work in mind, Granitech raised floors offer the best response to the market from the economic point of view, because of the limited amount of time it takes to install them and their moderate impact on the working environment.

Creation of floating floors allows Granitech to work without altering the building’s masonry structure (even in homes and apartment buildings), facilitating the most common forms of work: connections (electrical, telephone, computer), wiring or replacement of individual porcelain tiles.

Applied dry, without any adhesive, raised floors have a technical compartment offering the necessary space for the passage of material. The principal benefits of raised floors are:
- the freedom to change spaces over time in response to new requirements for the organisation of space;
- addition of new workstations or changes to existing ones;
- work on individual porcelain floor tiles during maintenance and modification of installations without interfering with adjacent panels;
- thermal separation between the floor slab and the floating floor, improving the comfort and overall functioning of the space.

The system also offers significant benefits for the architect: without constraints in terms of where to position various installations, the architect enjoys greater creativity and freedom of design, and the logistics of the entire business will benefit as a result. The space can therefore be redesigned and reorganised from time to time in response to practical needs, leaving more space for development of the interior and optimisation of the details of surfaces.
Visitors and customers, increasingly attentive to the overall perception of space, feel more at ease in spaces without any visual obstructions, making it easy to provide them with an immersive experience.
