Exposed concrete Soffit Finish Flooring Slabs required for 900-place secondary school.
Flood Precast flooring slab has a high-quality exposed concrete soffit finish (Class B) to which paint can be applied directly, or which can be left in its natural state so that the full thermal mass effects of the concrete flooring can be exploited. Flood Super Wideslab® planks are more suitable for exposure because the finish can be of higher quality than concrete cast in situ. In this case, the exposed concrete finish adds to the aesthetic appeal of the building.
Other Advantages of using Wideslab Include:
Fewer soffit joints –At 2.4 metres in width, this is the widest composite prestressed flooring slab available anywhere. These wider units result in a 50% reduction in soffit joints when compared to hollowcore.
Thermal mass and natural ventilation – Exposed solid Super Wideslab® is an excellent heat sink which is critical for natural ventilation. Our wet-cast manufacturing process gives rise to a far superior quality soffit finish which can be a vital requirement in some projects. The absence of voids in the floor meant that the prestressed precast Super Wideslab® floor is denser and therefore effective in terms of Thermal Mass, sound reduction and vibration.
Solid slab with no cores – unlike Hollowcore, Flood Super Wideslab® is solid with no cores so there is no fear of dripping from cores.
