Concrete slab floors, whether on-ground, suspended or a mixture of both, provide lifestyle advantages and thermal comfort. One of the big advantages of a concrete slab is their ability to be insulated, both underneath and at the edges, and the use of modern techniques is dramatically reducing the ecological impact of the material.
Slab-on-ground is the most common method of grounding a building, available in two forms:
- conventional slabs which have deep excavated beams, and which can be insulated beneath the broad floor panels; and
- waffle pods, which sit near ground level with a grid of expanded polystyrene foam pods as void formers which create a maze of beams in the structure. Insulation of waffle pods is from below.
Suspended slabs differ from pre-cast slabs in that they are formed and poured on site (in situ). The suspended slab formwork is either removed after the curing of the concrete or can become a permanent part of the building’s reinforcement.
Pre-cast slabs are manufactured off-site and then craned into place on the worksite. They can be delivered in finished form or completed on site with a thin pour of concrete. Conventional concrete or post-tensioned reinforced concrete are the usual construction materials for pre-cast slabs.
Safe construction and a level working surface are essential in a shed. Give yourself peace of mind with a solid foundation for your new working environment. The use of standard grey concrete is the most economical and efficient construction material, and steel reinforcement will ensure durability and strength.
Our experienced operators at Civil Kerbing Concreting can work to exacting engineering specifications including footings and edge beams.
