The AFA is an advisory body that can provide guidance on the specification, installation and maintenance of raised access flooring - and it relaunches today
The Access Flooring Association (AFA) is relaunching to promote best practice in the specification, installation and maintenance of raised access flooring in the UK.
The advisory body aims to assist manufacturers, installers, specifiers, architects and users of access flooring systems by offering help and advice to achieve the best possible raised access flooring standards.
The PSA Specification Guide: Raising the bar
The Property Services Agency Method of Building Performance Specification PSA MOB PF2 PS is the de facto standard for raised access flooring in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The AFA helps demystify complex and detailed specifications to highlight the information architects need in order to make informed decisions when specifying raised access floor systems.
