Hollow core slabs are precast, pre-stressed concrete elements that are generally used for flooring for both commercial buildings and homes.
Some of there advantages are as follows:
The concrete hollow core slabs have between four and six longitudinal cores running through them, the primary purpose of the cores being to decrease the weight, and material within the floor, yet maintain maximal strength. To further increase the strength, the slabs are reinforced with 12mm diameter steel strand, running longitudinally.
Currently we offer a range of five concrete slab depths; 200, 220, 300, 320 and 400 millimetre slabs. Depending on the project requirements, in particular span and loading performance, a particular slab depth is chosen.
