Reinforced concrete slabs are used to provide structural floor support to a foundation. Concrete floor slabs are used in modern buildings, to provide flat floors and ceilings.
The process involves making a concrete base using layers of reinforcement being placed onto the piles and framework of a properties structure. Concrete is then poured onto the slabs and levelled, which provides an even base to build on. The thick, large concrete slabs are then supported by concrete planks, the ground, load-bearing walls, beams or columns.
It is also possible for the concrete slabs to be fabricated off-site, rather than poured into the structure using formwork.
Slab Construction Experts
There are a number of different types of reinforced concrete slabs available for your project. The two most common methods are one-way slab and two-way slab. These depend on beam support, reinforcement provided and the ratio of the spans.
Whichever type of reinforced concrete slab you require for your project may depend on individual specifications of the structure of your property, such as the layout of the property, aesthetic features and span length.
