Immediate Medical Response
Global IFS is pleased to offer materials for temporary emergency disaster response solutions in the communities where we live and work. Global delivers raised access floor to outfit remote command centers constructed to create overflow medical spaces outside of hospitals. Products facilitate customized adaptable spaces creating a level floor, accommodating gas outlets for oxygen and electrical outlets, and heating/cooling of the space. These materials can be mobilized in days to build emergency shelters quickly, creating highly functional spaces for healing.
Underfloor air and modular power below a raised access floor allows for the infrastructure of the building to be out of site leaving the beautiful timber beams in the ceilings and walls exposed. The underfloor utilities can deliver cleaner air, healthier spaces, precise temperature control, reduced draft complaints, flexibility for alternative floor plans, no unsightly wall and ceiling vents, and increased mechanical efficiency as compared to traditional overhead air distribution systems. Building with timber and raised access floor is not only beautiful it is exceptionally sustainable.
Just because a building is old doesn’t mean it can’t have state-of-the-art Raised Access Flooring (RAF) and Underfloor Air Distribution (UFAD) systems that are cost effective, energy efficient and provide fresher air. We work with architects and consultants to bring older sites up to current standards while still preserving the integrity of the structure.
Modern office buildings and other commercial outlets comprise over 70% of our business. In fact, with their overall cost effectiveness and energy efficiency, Raised Access Flooring (RAF) systems are continually growing in popularity. Our highly skilled RAF experts can work with your team to create the flooring solution that suits your needs and fits your budget – anywhere in the world.
Global IFS has the solution to upgrade older buildings into high performance office spaces with faster move-in, lower operating costs and space planning flexibility with our 2.5” Low Profile Raised Access Flooring.
