What is Tecnika?
Tecnika is a monolithic panel of agglomerated marble-cement conceived for the creation of quality raised access floors that are ideal for laying in areas with high pedestrian traffic. Tecnika is produced using a system patented by Monotile Trading.
What does Tecnika look like?
Tecnika panels are 60×60 cm, available in a wide range of different textures and colours to give free range to the imagination combining discretely with any type of room: from extreme design to a more classic taste and application in locations of a strongly historic flavour.
Why choose a raised floor?
There are a number of advantages by installing a raised floor, first of all the possibility of obtaining space directly under the floor for piping, cables or all types and electrical plant. Tecnika can be laid quickly as it does not require building work, the panels can be removed simply and quickly if maintenance work needs to be done on the plant or if the room layout needs to be reorganized.
The installation of a raised floor gives better thermal and acoustic insulation as it separates the impact level from the structure of the building.
Advantages of a raised Access structure. By using raised access floors, empty space can be created between the cement slab and the walking floor. Such space can be used for laying cables, for heating systems as well as electric and electronic equipment. Raised access floors have many advantages: they are built without brickwork, consequently it is possible to work on the equipments underneath without demolition, leaving the floor untouched.
Resistant to stress. The special steel wire netting which is drawn inside the single-layer panel grants high resistance and carrying capacity.
Exclusive profile. The Tecnika Series elements have a perimetral trim edge which protects them during installation and lasts as long as the floor itself. The profile is available in 2 colours and is integrated in the panel. This exclusive system once and for all eliminates the risk of detachment of the applied edging that could result from water infiltration, sudden changes in temperature or natural deterioration of the adhesive.
Tecnika is a patented system by Monotile Trading
The Tecnika Series panel is antistatic, and thanks to its high density and its specially shaped backside offers a good acustic insulation. Therefore it is particulary suitable for offices and business centres.
The Tecnika panels are exclusively made from a mixture of natural raw materials (cement, water, marble powder, marble chips or quartz) which are strongly pressed to reduced thickness; no resins are used in the process.
Fire reaction class
The Tecnika Series is made from materials that meet the requirements for Class 0 (incombustible) of the D.M. of 14/01/1985 (Fire Reaction Act). The panel can be considered absolutely fireproof and meets the prescriptions of fire regulations.
Freedom and flexibility in the designing phase
The charm of venetian flooring and its high resistance make the Tecnika line suitable for satisfying the demands for look and prestige in public as well as private premises. As a matter of fact, with its typical elegance and refinement the Tecnika Series suits – both in fine and coarse-grained or “Le Pietre / The Stones” – any architectural style. Tecnika panels can be used in modern buildings and for the restauration of ancient and historical ones, without preventing the designer from adopting the quickest and most functional flooring method.
