Precast / prestressed concrete elements are designed to meet modern construction requirements. Durability, strength, construction quality and performance are only a few characteristics of Technocast floor and wall hollowcore elements, capable of extra long spans and heavy loads.
Precast, prestressed hollowcore slabs are the most widely used type of precast products. The system offers numerous benefits to engineers and architects because it gives maximum strength with minimum weight, versatility in span/depth ratio and smooth soffit - offering several advantages over insitu floor casting, including speed of installation, lower building costs and consistent quality levels – attributes not often found in one convenient package.
Due to the weight saving attributes – up to a third or more – the use of high strength concrete, coupled with prestressing means that hollowcore slabs can achieve considerably larger spans than insitu reinforced concrete slabs of similar depths.
The slabs can be used in the construction of virtually any type of building in which suspended floors or roofs are required. These include flats, hospitals, office blocks, hostels, factories, hotels, townhouses, schools, shopping malls, multi-storey car parks, culverts and reservoir roofs as well as civil and hydraulic works.
Technocast pre-stressed, pre-cast hollowcore slabs are ready to support large loads and can support bridges for vehicles and thrust forces of slopes.
All profiles have a nominal width of 1200mm.
