Product Features

StarFlite Systems utilizes various construction materials and finishes. Our competitive advantage lies in the durabilty of our modular enclosures, as well as the ability to customize nearly any feature of your prefabricated structure. The information below details some of the special product features we consider when designing your building. Let us know if there are any features not listed below that you'd like included for your next project. 

Raised Access Flooring System

What is Raised Access Flooring?

ConCore Access Floor panels are epoxy coated unitized shells consisting of a flat steel top sheet welded to a formed steel bottom sheet filled with a highly controlled mixture of lightweight cement. Manufactured to exact tolerances these solid panels deliver the ultimate in design, performance, plenum integrity, service and usability.


  • The safe working load or design load for the panels are equal to the concentrated load
  • Zinc whisker free
  • Engineered panel corner for positive engagement
  • Full range of factory or field applied finishes
  • Excellent rolling and ultimate load performance
  • Completely non-combustible 
  • Interchangeable panel strengths
  • Available in 24" and 60cm sizes

Bolted Stringer Systems

  • Designed for computer rooms, data centers, industrial applications, and heavy rolling load areas
  • Allows flors to be built over 24" high
  • Panels can be gravity-held in understructure for fast removal and replacement
  • Stringers provide lateral resistance to heavy rolling loads and seismic loading
  • Seismic force-resistance pedestals are available that limit or eliminate the need for anchors or special bracing


Types of Glass & Coatings


At a minimum, StarFlite provides tempered safety glass for all windows


Another type of safety glass, these units consist of two panes of glass, laminated together to reduce spall if a window breaks or cracks


 Not a glass, but a polycarbonate substance, this material has very high impact strength and is frequently used for hurricane covers placed over glass windows. This type of material can be used for some bullet resistant makeups. Generally, it is an alternative to tempered glass when higher impact strength is required. 

 Bullet   Resistant

Bullet/high impact resistant glass can be used where utmost protection is required. This special window glass is made up of various layers of laminated glass. It can also incorporate lexan or other polycarbonate materials.

 Anti-Glare   Coating

 This coating will reduce glare on the interior window surface and improver operator visibility.

 IRR Coated   Glass

 This is a heat reflective coating that is baked onto the glass

 Shaded/Tinted   Glass

Reduces light transmittance for operator comfort. Shadings from light to very dark welding glass, and cobalt glass, are available.

 Heated   Window   Panes

 Electric resistance strips are laminated to the glass and help to reduce ice and snow buildup.


Types of Windows


The most popular type we incorporate into our buildings. These insulated windows have a minimum of two (2) fixed panes of glass that do not open.

Horizontal  Sliders

These units have two (2) sashes that slide from side to side and allow an operator or an attendant a means of accessing the exterior of the building, or allowing outside air into the building.

Double Hung

These windows have two (2) sashes that rasied and lower and allow an operator or an attendant a means of accessing the exterior of the buliding, or allowing outside air into the building.

Awning or  Hopper

Awning windows are hinged at the top and usually open out. Hopper windows are hinged at the bottom and usually open in. The mechanical arm or chain will prevent the window from opening too far.



Types of Units

Commercial  Duty

Commercial Duty units are designed for relatively clean environments, where the unit is not subject to corrosive conditions or vibration. These units typically have cabinets that are painted steel and/or plastic.

 Industrial Duty

Industrial Duty units are those designed to operate in dusty, dirty and potentially mild corrosive environments. These units typically feature wider fin spacing, allowing dust and dirt to pass through more easily. The cabinets are usually mild steel with a high performance coating or galvanized steel

 Severe Duty 

 Severe Duty units usually have the same features as industrial duty units, with the added feature of high ambient cooling. Most HVAC units are designed to deliver full cooling capacity at 95°F. After that, the capacity is diminished until the unit ceases function at approximately 105°F to 110°F. Using special controls, these units can deliver their fully rated cooling capacity well beyond 120°F.

Classified/Explosion  Proof

There are various classifications for explosion proof units, but in general, all are designed to provide some level of protection in environments where conditions exist for possible explosion hazards.


Typical Mounting Configurations

  • Through Wall
  • Wall Mount
  • Roof Mount
  • Split System
  • Stand-Alone

Calculations / Conversions

  • Cooling
    • 12,000 BTUs of cooling = approx. 3.51kw (or 3,510 watts)
    • 1 Ton of cooling = 12,000 BTUs
  • Heating 
    • 1 watt = approx. 3.412 BTUs
    • 1 kw = approx. 3,412 BTUs


Types of Insulation


This insulation is exactly what you would find in a residential home. The kraft face provides stability in the wall cavities. Fiberglass is the most cost effective option while providing thermal and acoustical controls. Four inches (4") of fiberglass provides a R-13 insulation value. 

 Mineral Wool

This insulation option provides enhanced fire protection and acoustical performance, which is ideal for noisy, industrial environments. Mineral wool comes in four pounds per cubic foot (4pcf) or six pounds per cubic foor (6pcf). At four inches thick (4") the insulation value is R-16.8.

 Foam Board

Foam board insulation provides the highest insulation value, and is used in several of our modular buildings that require specific energy code compliance (see Industrialized Units page). A two inch thick (2") sheet of foam board provides a R-13 insulation value.
