Slabs

Slabs are structures that interface between floors of a building and can support subfloors or function as a ceiling. Generally, they rest on beams, which in turn rest on pillars and adequately distribute the building load.

Its structural design is of a plate in which two dimensions (length and width) are much larger than the third, which is the thickness, with loads transverse to it and subjected to bending.

The design criteria are the breaking strength and the thickness itself. Thin slabs may be safe to break, but cause user insecurity due to too large arrows or excessive vibration.

It is essential to know that concrete slabs are the most critical flooring alternative developed during the last years, thanks to its easy installation, high durability and finally easy and economical maintenance. The use of slabs has become the choice of everyone in Sydney, Australia. We offer comprehensive packages that include: concrete pavement design engineering, pavement execution with modern techniques, professional technical advice, permanent supervision on-site and after-sales service.

We execute concrete slabs with technical specifications of high planimetry Fmin, FF, FL, for warehouses. We promote the use of new technology materials for the execution of pavements such as steel fibers and plastic macrofibres for the reinforcement of concrete, surface hardeners of quartz and metal to improve resistance to abrasion wear, semi-rigid epoxy gasket seals for the protection of the edges of the joints and flexible seals for the waterproofing of the joints, etc.

Waffle Slab

A waffle slab is a type of slab with holes underneath, which gives the appearance of waffles. It is generally used when large lights (for example, auditorium) are required to prevent many columns from interfering with the space. Therefore, thick slabs that extend between wide beams are necessary (to avoid beams protruding for aesthetic reasons).

Since the tensile strength of concrete is mainly satisfied by the reinforcement of steel bars, only the “ribs” are kept, the remaining portion of the “unused” concrete below the neutral axis is removed to reduce the slab’s weight. This is achieved by placing clay pots or other forms on the formwork before melting the concrete.

Why you need Waffle Slabs?

Our waffle slabs provide stiffer and lighter slabs than an equivalent flat slab. The construction speed for such a slab is faster compared to the conventional slab. Relatively light therefore economical. It uses 30% less concrete and 20% less steel than a raft slab. They provide low deflections on the floor. It has good finishes and robustness. It is also fire-resistant and has excellent vibration control.

Suspended Slabs

Suspended slabs are widely used where the ground is unsuitable for the support of the ground floor slab or where the slope of the site makes it cost-saving to leave a void below the ground. So, if you need a reliable company that provides top-quality suspended slabs to commercial and residential property, then you consider calling us for this service.
