| QUESTION: What is the floor of a technical room?

THE ENGINEER ANSWERS: People call it a raised floor, a server room, a data center, a technical room floor. They all refer to the same type, but within it there are several types, depending on the purpose and use.

I'LL TELL YOU AN INTERESTING STORY: There is evidence that the first raised floor was created in the Roman Empire. Huge slabs were hollowed out by columns, and hot air from stoves outside the house was channeled through the space under the floor and used in public baths and the richest houses.

Thus, in the middle of the 19th century, the first attempts to create an electronic calculating machine were the result of tireless work to improve the floor of the technical room.

| QUESTION: Explain in detail what are the advantages of technical room flooring?

The engineer answers:

  • Does not conduct electricity. /To give an interesting example: When a person drags his shoes around the room, wears nylon or woolen clothes, an electrical charge accumulates. And when it comes into contact with the surface of something, it settles a little and causes discomfort. But above all, the floor protects the equipment from interpersonal static charges without conducting electricity/
  • The surface is non-slip
  • Stainless material
  • Fire resistant material
  • No chemical reaction
  • No stains will settle
  • Floor load: ≤ 450 - up to 1000 kg. It helps absorb shock when something heavy is dropped, keeps dust out, and also aids in noise isolation and equipment absorption.
  • LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE: If there is no floor in the technical room, all this heavy equipment is in danger of tipping over, which will affect the safety of the building!                       

| QUESTION: Can the floor of a technical room be used at home?

IN SIMPLE TERMS: When using the space under the raised floor, constant monitoring of the humidity and temperature of the room is necessary, as the equipment gets very hot. Also, by making a grid (lattice) in some places, you can freely exchange air currents, as well as hide cables such as various types of power transmission. Of course, it can be moved and used again.

Currently, #Technical_room_flooring can be installed in offices, classrooms, conference rooms, shops, museums, studios, etc. in places where technology is needed. It is also made from wood, pilta, metal and PVC materials and can be used to hide sewer pipes in kitchens and bathrooms or on outdoor terraces.
