A Hollowcore slab offers the ideal structural section by reducing deadweight while providing the maximum structural efficiency within the slab depth.
Extra Long Spans
Factory made prestressed units offer the design benefit of long span units for given depths. This avoids the need for intermediate supports and provides an economically light solution throughout the entire structure.
Flexibility of Design Approach
Precast floors are available with a variety of factory-formed notches, slots and reinforcement arrangements which offer various design approaches.
Factory Produced to Rigorous Quality Standards
Because precast floors are factory produced, they are manufactured in an environment which is more readily controlled than a building site. Quality control systems are properly implemented and are independently examined on a regular basis to European Standards.
Precast hollowcore is supplied with a fire resistance of up to two hours.
Precast floors are manufactured on high quality steel beds that give extremely smooth ready use soffits.
Speed of Erection
Time-consuming activities such as propping, shuttering and concrete-pouring are virtually eliminated.
Immediate, Unpropped Working Platform
Once a precast floor is erected, it is immediately available for further construction use without the need to wait for curing times.
Minimum In-Situ Concrete
With a precast hollowcore, a lot of the work is done off site. This eliminates what can be complex, time-consuming and weather-affected site work.
Precast floor slabs are structurally grouted to provide a floor with full diaphragm action, as required in most multi–storey frameworks.
