Access Floors Distribution offers a professional recycled floor panels service to the access floor industry. As an alternative to sending panels to costly and wasteful landfill, we can take panels being stripped out from site. Panels are inspected and can then be re-used as replacements elsewhere. Recycled floor panels can even be used in ‘new’ floor installations where appropriate. Our technical knowledge is available to you for advice. We can identify existing systems and provide spare components, even for legacy systems that are no longer in production.
Raised access floor panels are designed to have a minimum life of 25 years, excluding the floor finish. If the use of company premises change, a raised floor may no longer be required. If the installation is relatively new, sending the panels to landfill is not environmentally friendly. However, raised access floor panels and components cannot be simply re-used. The floor may have undergone structural stress and may have been weakened. The AFD recycled floor panels service ensures that the raised access floor is professionally inspected for safety.
If, after inspection, the panels are deemed suitable for re-use, AFD will put the product into stock and make them available as replacements for existing installations. If required, any old adhesive remaining on the panels can be removed on request, for a small additional charge.
Recycled floor panels, once inspected, achieve compliance with RICS SKA Rating – Good practice measures for offices: Raised flooring systems M07 39 version 1.1 2011. SKA rating is an environmental assessment method, benchmark and standard for non-domestic fit-outs, led and owned by RICS.
Access Floors Distribution consider a wide variety of panel types and of various quality for the recycled floor panels service. As a result, we have a large selection of panel types and manufacturer’s brands available from stock. This is ideal for installations that are being extended or reconfigured. It is also the perfect solution for the replacement of damaged panels in existing systems. Panel types can be matched perfectly for fit. This is particularly useful for old floor systems, or if the panel has become obsolete.
Our recycled floor panels service greatly reduces environmental impact compared with simply ‘binning’ floors that are being ripped out. The tricky matching up of old panels with different, new product is eliminated.
