Why Raised Floors

Tate’s Building Technology Platform® offers the perfect solution for any facility to address its design goals. The benefits of underfloor service distribution (UFSD) include many sustainable and high performance advantages that support the overall aesthetic value of the facility – all while being cost-effective in both construction and operation. Every type of environment, office space, data center, hosting center and white room as well as computer room benefit significantly from raised floors and UFSD.

A More Sustainable Solution

Tate’s Building Technology Platform® can play a vital role in improving the sustainability of a building. Energy savings are realized through the use of a low pressure underfloor plenum which uses natural convection to cool only the occupied space. Underfloor service distribution reduces the amount of materials need to deliver key services to the location of the occupants, and promotes the continual reuse of materials throughout a building's useful life.

The Added Convenience of High Performance

Access floors offer a completely flexible and adaptive method for service distribution so your facility can react quickly to new technologies or organizational changes with minimal down time and disruption to the occupants. In addition, the use of underfloor air distribution improves indoor air quality and personal comfort control while enabling the building design to easily incorporate additional daylighting and ventilation effectiveness. These high performance characteristics help raised floors improve the building occupants quality of life.

The Ability to Control Costs

Tate understands that even a sustainable and high performance building needs to offer long-term value if it is to provide a positive return on your investment. Many sustainable features reduce costs by reducing energy usage while high performance features come at a premium. This is not the case with Tate. Tate’s access floors have been designed to control costs through durability and long-term service, adaptability to future expansion and change, along with easy, low-cost maintenance requirements. Additional cost savings are realized through easy installation and accelerated depreciation.
