Underfloor Air Distribution

Underfloor air distribution (UFAD) reduces energy costs up to 20%, improves air quality, and improves employee comfortability. This comfort has been shown to enhance productivity, decrease absenteeism, and improve the building’s value – not to mention, it significantly contributes to LEED certification.

Maximize energy efficiency and personal comfort

UFAD systems
UFAD systems use a raised floor to create an air distribution plenum to improve energy efficiency and modularity of design. UFAD uses stratified airflow to improve the ventilation effectiveness and indoor air quality of the interior space by delivering air at a low velocity near the floor; allowing the air to naturally rise to a ceiling return, pulling contaminants and CO2 away from occupants.

UFAD systems also improve flexibility and control. UFAD allows for easy diffuser reconfiguration in reaction to office occupancy and layout changes. Each diffuser can be equipped with personal comfort controls so that occupants can adjust the amount and direction of airflow in their space.

Aesthetically, UFAD eliminates the need for drop ceilings and reduces the amount of service distribution space allowing for larger windows with greater daylighting and access to views.
Underfloor air distribution offers complete flexibility while providing better indoor air quality, greater personal comfort, and reduced energy consumption.

Underfloor Wire and Cable Distribution

Avoid the trap of using inflexible and expensive wire and cable systems in your building. With Tate’s Wire and Cable Management solution, consisting of a Tate Access Floor with modular ‘plug & play’ power wiring and zone cabling solutions, you can be assured your building will provide ultimate flexibility that allows you to respond to organisational and technology changes quickly, easily, and cost effectively.  This plug-and-play system allows you to add new equipment or make moves, adds and changes very simply and quickly.

A Flexible & Sustainable Management System


Traditional wire and cabling is rigid and wasteful. Not only does embedded wire and cables limit flexibility by making change expensive and disruptive, labor and material costs prohibit reconfiguring your space as your business needs change.

Reduced impact on base building

Access floors eliminate the need to embed wiring and cabling within concealed rigid structures such as walls and columns, thereby allowing tenants the freedom to access their wiring and cabling quickly and easily.

Complete accessibility and unlimited capacity

An access floor provides you with access to your service pathway at any location on the floor plate, with finished floor heights that accommodate any capacity needs.

Point of use services wherever you need them

PVD Servicenters™ with modular ‘plug & play’ connections provide point of use termination of power, voice, and data at any location on the floor plate for any type of workstation and application

Access floor and underfloor modular plug and play services allow for quick and easy equipment and technology changes at low cost with minimal disruption.
