HOLLOW CORE

Exeed Precast hollow core slabs are prestressed concrete elements that are cast with advanced extrusion technology to be used as floor and roof deck systems, partition walls as well as boundary wall panels.

The primary purpose of the cores/voids running through the slabs continuously is to decrease the weight and materials within the floor whilst maintaining the maximal strength. These voids also offer the possibility to be used as service ducts for concealed services such as plumbing and electrical. They can be even used as ducts for air conditioning.

Using hollow core slabs have proven to be effective and efficient in residential buildings, schools, hospitals, car parks, multistorey buildings and multipurpose centers. They are easily adaptable to low, medium or high-rise structures.

TYPICAL CROSS SECTIONS OF HOLLOW CORE SLABS

Exeed Precast offers a range of depth for hollow core slabs: 150, 200, 265, 320,400 and 500 millimeters. Depending on the requirements of the project, our design team will provide the most adequate and economical design that will suit the span and loading performance and comply with the codes of practice.

ADVANTAGES

FAST CONSTRUCTION AT SITE

Cut to fit before arriving on construction site, allowing a fast and simple erection process, thus reducing time of construction, saving finance costs and expediting the income from using the buildings.

SUPREME QUALITY

Produced in our factory through automated machines under controlled conditions using the extrusion technique.

EASY TO ERECT

No need for any expensive or complicated formwork, or even temporary propping, which gives free space with easy accessibility within the construction site. Only a small erection crew is required to erect the hollow core slabs.

LIGHTWEIGHT

The presence of the voids in the hollow core slabs reduces the dead load on the floor yet maintaining the strength compared to other flooring system.

HIGH LOAD CAPACITY

Can handle heavy load requirements in structures such as factories, warehouse, bridges, schools, storage buildings without increasing the deck thickness or adding multitudes of beams and columns.

LONG SPANS

Exeed Precast Hollow Core slabs can easily accommodate long spans up to 20 meter without the use of intermediate beams and columns.

SOUND RESISTANCE

Possess low sound transmission properties. The density and configuration of the hollow core slabs combine to lend themselves extremely well to both impact and airborne sound transmission.

FIRE RESISTANCE

Fire resistant structural elements, tests and studies have demonstrated the high performance characteristics of hollow core slabs. Two hours fire rating can be easily achieved without any additional topping. The addition of topping will produce fire ratings of up to four hours which will satisfy even the most stringent code requirements.
