Hollow-floor specialist Lindner can provide bespoke solutions to easily accommodate the changing floor layouts.
Building the infrastructure to meet the demands of today and tomorrow requires technology that can keep up with perpetual advancement and change. However, many public areas have been slow to accommodate these changes, much to their detriment. The modern airport's approach to customer satisfaction has changed a lot in the construction of terminals.
Airports are constantly developing - shops move from one corner to another, check-in desks are added or moved, and sometimes entire terminals are reorganised. Lindner's hollow-floor systems can easily be combined with raised-access floor systems that offer permanent easy access to the cable and supply lines running within the void. New inspection hatches or additional electrical outlets can easily be added within a raised floor at any time after the initial installation, and they are not restricted by pre-installed cable channels, as is the case with traditional screed systems. This cuts down on maintenance requirements and helps to avoid additional long-term costs resulting from changes to the terminal.
Hollow floors offer space for electric and supply-line installations between the concrete floor slab and the finished floor surface, and can also be designed for easy frequent access to the installations. A high level of fire and soundproofing is maintained, and additional features such as heating and ventilation can be integrated.
In addition to its unrivalled functionality, visual appearance is also important. Again taking into account the high flexibility and limitless possibilities of surface options, ranging from elastic or textile floor coverings - which can also be installed as broadloom on the building site - to loose-laid tiles or genuine wood surfaces with different layout options, as well as natural or artificial stone, the floor system can be factory-finished to adapt to the project's needs.
