The hotel and leisure industries have always been a trend setter in service, value and style. The market is competitive in a market that is saturated. So businesses need to stand out from the crowd. Raised access floor systems allow these market sectors to be at the forefront of technology and service, without disruption to guests and customers.
In the hotel industry, conference and banqueting facilities deliver increased footfall and profit. Raised access flooring permits rapid and easy reconfiguration of these spaces, which also usually have moveable walls for flexibility. Power, data and comms can be delivered exactly where needed, whilst floor area is kept clear to maximise occupancy. As technology advances, or requirements change, the services are easily reconfigured. It isn’t only front of house that benefit from raised flooring. Data, power and air conditioning can be provided to guests in bedrooms, with minimal disruption during maintenance.
Raised access floors are also key to the leisure revolution, with people now having more leisure time than ever before. Commercial gyms have rows of electric and data hungry exercise machines. This heavy equipment needs high strength flooring, but also power and data. AFD Indigo and Crimson offer an ideal solution. A wide range of outlet boxes and grommets means power can be delivered exactly to the point required. Layouts can be changed quickly, with services easily re-routed. Factory bonded, hard wearing vinyl and laminates proved the perfect finish.
Large venues, such as music and sporting arenas or conference halls can also benefit from raised floors. Refreshment and trading kiosks need to be added and relocated seamlessly, whilst also being provided with water, drainage, power and data. Casinos with gaming machines also benefit from the flexibility that heavy duty raised floors provide. Likewise cinemas, museums and other cultural attractions have multiple service or regular reconfiguration demands. Knauf GIFAfloor is a perfect fit for large public circulation spaces in hotel and leisure premises. The stable, monolithic floor it creates is the ideal substrate for premium floor finishes such as stone, marble and natural timber.
Hotel and leisure developments have wide ranging aesthetic requirements. AFD offer raised access floor panels with an extensive choice of factory bonded finishes. The colour and design choice is vast, to complement any interior design, whilst remaining practical and robust in use. AFD can also supply special finishes to make a venue stand out in a crowded market. From rubber and metal chequer plate, through to glass panels and ceramics, AFD can meet your design specification.
