Diaphragm Action Precastfloorslabsarestructurallygroutedtoprovidea floor with full diaphragm action as required inmost multi–storey frameworks. Shelf Angle Bearing Slab ends can be notched during manufacture tofacilitate a bearing within the depth of a mainsupporting steel. This minimises storey height, withsubstantialcostbenefits arising fromreducedcladding costs, lower internal fitting costs etc. No Propping Propping is generally not required with hollow corefloors.Comparethiswith thelargeamountof propping required with insitu and semi-insitu floorsystems. Fire Resistance Standard precast floors can be supplied with a fireresistance of up to 2 hours.Periods in excess ofthiscan be provided with modified sectionsif required. Minimum Insitu Concrete Using a precast floor, a large volume of work iscarried out off site and saves what can be complexand time consuming site operation subject to thevagaries of the climate. Immediate Unpropped Working Platform Once a precast floor is erected, it is immediatelyavailable as a working platform.Steel deck systems by comparison can presentproblems in achieving level surfaces whilst concreteis poured and in providing access whilst in thepropped condition. PRECASTCONCRETE FLOORS THE ADVANTAGES Preformed Site Services Precast floors can be provided with factory formedservice holes thus avoiding laborious setting outand shuttering on site. Extra Long Spans Factory made prestressed units offer the maximumdesign advantages of achieving long span units forgiven depths. This avoids the need for intermediatesupports and provides an economically light solutionthroughouttheentire structure. The Bison long span450 mmdeep unitcan span in excess of16 metres. Finished Soffits Precast floors are manufactured on high qualitysteelbedsand are suitablein appropriate cases fordirectdecoration. Flexibility of Design Approach Precast floors are available with a variety of factory formed notches, slots and reinforcementarrangements which offer various design approaches. Elimination of Edge Shuttering Edge shuttering to any building is inevitably adifficult and often dangerous operation. This can betotally avoided by using a precast floor. Structural Efficiency Ahollowcore slaboffers the ideal structural sectionby reducing the deadweight whilst providing themaximumstructuralefficiencywithintheslabdepth.
