Bathgate Raised Access Flooring

BE Range (edge banded): BSEN productsBathgate Edge Banded Panel

The Permaflor BE panel uses an encapsulated construction of galvanised steel bonded to both surfaces with a protective PVC edge-band. It is also available with a bonded vinyl surface finish.

This design offers improved handling and manoeuvrability during installation whilst retaining the strength and robustness of a traditional steel encased panel.

The full-depth edge-banding provides improved tightness of fit between adjoining panels and gives a firm seating onto the pedestal without the use of gaskets. Air leakage is considerably reduced, a feature that can be important when the void is used as an air plenum.

As well as non-standard sizes, a wide range of factory-bonded surface finishes can be applied to the BE range, including carpet, timber and ceramics.
