LEED Gold certified Polygroup’s Technology for the events hall floor in Torre Azca
Torre Titania, also known as Torre Azca, has already become a landmark building within Madrid financial district. Located in Paseo de la Castellana, this architecture built on the remains of Torre Windsor (destroyed in a fire in 2005), houses a shopping centre and office spaces in 27 floors raising 103.7m from the ground. In the events and meeting hall of the skyscraper, POLYGROUP has installed one of their most advanced raised access flooring: GAMAFLOR FULL STEEL.
Given the high level of daily bustle and walk-on transit, POLYGROUP has shared its expertise to configure this innovative and stable flooring system, based on technology manufacture in Europe only by POLYGROUP and, in addition, has recently obtained the Leed Gold certificate that grants Leed credits to the building.
This type of raised flooring, versatile, unalterable by moisture and dampness and with great resistance to heavy load, is fire-resistant and offers, as well, high acoustic absorption levels. It is made of two electro welded steel sheets and a lightweight cement injection lending it the highest performance and resistance levels with dynamic and static loads, and with a finish of anticorrosive epoxy paint coating.
The solid GAMAFLOR structure for elevation and screwed in (pedestal and stringer) ensures full stability, levelling and better acoustic absorption in the different removable floors systems. The use of inert materials during the manufacturing process, classifies this raised floor system with 0% moisture and dampness absorption index, as well as the lowest thermal conductivity, compared with other raised flooring systems.
In this particular case, a screwed in raised floor has been chosen, without finish, thus allowing for a cover flooring to be placed at a later stage.
Furthermore, this raised floor system is used by the most important engineering companies in the US, for commercial sector as well as technological Data Center, Oil and Gas or Telecommunications sectors.
