  • Fast installation – 500 to 700m2 can be fitted per day, depending on the layout.
  • Allows other trades to get immediate access to the site
  • Longer spans/heavier loadings can be achieved by providing continuity reinforcement.
  • Propping reduced to 4 metres typical mid span.
  • Up to 20% less concrete, reducing self-weight to the building.
  • Excellent fire resistance.
  • High quality surface finish.
  • Can incorporate tie and up-stand beams.
  • Allows greater flexibility of layout.
  • Provision for tying requirements of progressive collapse can be easily and economically achieved.
