INSULATION ENGINEERED FOR RAISED FLOOR SYSTEMS

By: Armaflex

Armaflex has been used extensively in raised floor applications, with project history in banks, data centres, hotels and office buildings. Ease of use, excellent insulation values and reliable performance makes Armaflex an ideal material for under floor plenums.

  • Air Plenums and Indoor Air Quality

Many modern buildings are air-tight and rely on re-circulating filtered but stale air. Almost all gases remain within the envelope, and air distribution systems are an essential part of removing any contaminants and maintaining occupant comfort.

Whilst distribution systems are an essential part of the solution to indoor air pollution, they can also provide an inconvenient means of spreading noise and air pollution throughout the building. Our air is always contaminated with pollutants, and these pollutants include not only naturally-generated gases such as carbon dioxide, but also harmful man-made volatile organic chemicals, industrial fibres, dust particles, microbial spores and bacteria. Whilst breathing these may not result in immediate signs of ill health, they may contribute towards “sick building syndrome”.

Carefully selecting the insulation for the air plenums is an important part of minimising the potential contributors to indoor air pollution.
