As you know, a concrete slab is a common structural element of a majority of modern buildings. In addition, it is important to note that pouring a concrete slab on your own may be a big money saver or a huge mistake. As a company, we come up with several forms of concrete slabs. The first type of slab that we develop is the slab-on-ground. This is a slab that contains two variants. They are the conventional slabs that contain excavated beams and the waffle pod slabs that sit near ground level and possess a grid of expanded polystyrene form pods as void formers. It is possible to insulate the conventional slabs beneath the broad floor panels. By definition, the waffle ponds are usually insulated beneath. The two may benefit from slab edge insulation.
The second type of slab that the company makes is the suspended slab. These are the types of slabs that are formed and poured in situ using either the removable or the ‘lost’ non-load bearing formwork or the permanent formwork that is a part of the reinforcement.
The precast slabs is the third type of concrete slab that our company makes. In this case, the slabs are made offsite and craned into place. This can be done in the finished form or with the additional thin pour of concrete over the top. They can be developed from either the post-tensioned reinforce concrete or from the conventional concrete. Alternatively, it may be made from the autoclaved aerated concrete.
As a company, in addition to just making the sales, we also offer advice related to the ways in which you are required to pour the concrete slabs. The major activities that are involved in the process include the preparation of the site, the building of strong and level forms of a perfect slab, building up the base and packing it, preparing for the concrete truck, pouring and flattening the concrete, and lastly, floating and troweling so as to get a smooth finish.
