Innovative Underfloor Air Distribution (UFAD) Technology and Raised Floor Systems Enhance Capabilities Supporting Healthy Facility Environments
Chicago, IL – July 12, 2021 Diverzify, the innovative national leader in commercial flooring installation and interior services, is acquiring Florida-based Select Prefab Solutions, a national leader in Underfloor Air Distribution (UFAD) and raised floor systems, to meet increased market demand for comprehensive “healthy building” services. Post-pandemic business practices and return-to-work initiatives emphasize facility health safety and hygiene, creating a related demand for comprehensive service offerings from a single provider. With the addition of Select Prefab Solutions and exclusive distribution of its products and services, Diverzify now offers clients one of the most comprehensive single-provider range of services to support healthy building initiatives.
“Experts agree that improved airflow is a critical element in creating a healthy work environment,” said Joshua Slater, chief integration officer for Diverzify. “Select Prefab Solutions’ underfloor air distribution answers the challenge of indoor air pollution and rounds out Diverzify’s comprehensive services solution.”
Traditional facility air circulation systems introduce new airflow to the existing internal atmosphere, effectively blending new and existing air and retaining any harmful germs, viruses, or other elements. The underfloor air distribution system stratifies indoor air and uses new circulation to push out “old” air and eliminate air stagnation.
“Our products and services solve key challenges facility executives face today,” said Ed Patti, president of Select Prefab Solutions. “As a part of Diverzify’s comprehensive services solution, we will now be able to help a greater number of facilities across the nation.”
Diverzify and its affiliated business network currently support healthy building initiatives with commercial interior product specification, installation, and surface care services that include odor neutralization, disinfection, surface repair and restoration, and specialized surface cleaning. Clients value the simplicity and consistency of a single point of contact for national facility development and support services, which have traditionally involved multiple service providers and a confusing array of business practices, terms and inconsistent performance results.
