Course Description

Discuss design considerations with respect to loads, airflow requirements and safety concerns, as well as panel cutting and floor maintenance techniques. A raised access floor creates a space between the floor slab and the underside of the access floor, providing space for building services such as air condition, fire detection and suppression, security and cabling for electric power, data, telecom/voice and environmental control.
