precast concrete floor, wall and frame construction,precast concrete construction has many advantages over cast-in-situ concrete structures as well as steel, wood, & masonry structures. it provides faster and more efficient construction process. this system has its own characteristics which influence the layout, span length, construction depth, stability system, etc. to a greater or less extend..hollow core : hollow core : concrete tech,the hollow core slab is manufactured in a standard 4’ width and 8”, 12”, and 12 ½” thicknesses using a continuous concrete extrusion process. zero-slump, high-strength concrete with a 28-day strength in excess of 8,000 psi and ½” diameter, 270 ksi, low relaxation steel strands are used in the process..

this flooring is suitable for both domestic and commercial buildings and is supplied is supplied in lengths to site requirements ranging in depths from 150mm to 400mm. alternative shapes and widths are available to order and the technical by mannok team provides advice and guidance on floor plans for layouts, spans and loadings.
our precast hollowcore floors are available in sections 150, 200, 250 and 260mm deep. they can be delivered nationwide on a supply and install basis by specialised teams from bison precast, or supply only for installation by the main contractor.

the most common floor and roof elements employed are 205 mm deep untopped hollowcore units. these slabs can span up to 9 m or more without intermediate supports. longer spans can be achieved by using 254 mm or 305 mm deep hollowcore units.

precast hollow core plank is prestressed concrete, primarily used for floor and roof decks in multi-family or hotel buildings. the continuous hollow cores help to add structural stability while also reducing the amount of material, which ultimately reduces weight and overall cost. precast hollow core plank construction can take many forms.
ergon mass produced beams, columns, panels, tt-floor slabs, and hollow core slabs, made of reinforced concrete and pre-stressed concrete. compared to the hollow core slabs in reinforced concrete, which were 60 cm wide and up to 6m long, the pre-stressed concrete floor slabs usually were wider and longer.
a further example of a floor plan for a commercial building is shown in figure 2.6. the bay is 6 m × 13.5 m with 350 mm deep hollow core precast units spanning 13.5 m. for this floor plan the supporting beams could be composite or non-composite. supporting beam supporting edge

to set up the test, the topped planks were raised onto concrete blocks and supported 3½ in. inward from each end to leave a span of 25 ft, 6 in. the ends were supported by 2¾-in.-wide urethane bearing pads, with one bearing pad at each stem as shown in figures e and f.
the minimum depth of bearing on the wall is 90 mm and 75mm steel. spaces between slabs are filled with concrete mixwith the addition of increasing its strength. a precamber of approximate length/300 (+/-50%) can be expected on all prestressed slabs and the camber may vary between adjoining slabs.
8' thick hollowcore can support 100 psf superimposed service loads on spans over 28 feet, while 10' thick product can support 100 psf superimposed service loads on spans over 33 feet. a composite concrete structural topping can be applied to increase product strength.mack utilizes a 5000 psi min. mix design that routinely provides 28-day strengths of over 7500 psi.
where r.s means was used. the precast system as shown in table 3, includes the precast hollow core planks and a 2”concrete topping with 6”x6” w.14xw1.4 w.w.f. the composite slab alternative system in table 4, includes w8x10 beams, a 6” concrete slab with 6”x6” w.14xw1.4 w.w.f., and metal decking. the equipment cost for the precast concrete planks was taken from the tower crane rental cost for the
prestressed hollow-core concrete floor slabs. “echo prestress” slabs are suitable for long span applications (up to 11m between support structures) like townhouses, clusters, industrial and commercial projects, schools, clinics and suspended ground floors in areas of clay heave and shrinkage. these slabs are traditionally used as
suspended beam and block floor wide beam 125mm 170mm 155mm 54 kg/m section weight • span up to 6.75m • lighter choice commercial solution compared to 225 deep beam • wide beams mean a faster installation due to fewer units to lift, simpler layout and less grouting • available from 4m two solutions wide floor beams can span longer distances and
designed to easily fit into any structural system, whether it is steel, in-situ, precast or concrete masonry, at acp (concrete) ltd our precast concrete planks are typically 1200mm wide and are available in standard depths from 150mm to 500m. the spans of hollowcore floor can be up to 20.5m.

[email protected] +44 (0)7885 259813. fp mccann manufactures precast concrete hollowcore flooring units. these units are a prestressed concrete slab normally 1200mm wide (part widths are also available if required) and a current depth range of 150mm to 450mm. in addition to this range, we also manufacture a
span: 16 m width: 1,200 mm. hollowcore units derive their name from the circular voids or cores which run throughout the slab. the units have a smooth finish and maximum capacity of 2.3 kn/sqm over a 16m span…
how does precast hollowcore flooring work. slabs are manufactured to differing lengths to accommodate each housing type. these pre-cast slabs are supported by the internal cavity wall and span across the upper floor. spaces between the slabs are grouted on-site producing a solid structural floor that resists differential movement.
hollow core panels. both general precast concrete ltd and ballut blocks ltd can manufacture a wide range of hollow core concrete panels capable to span up to 28.0m. these are fabricated in high strength concrete with different wire arrangement depending on the loading requirements. safe load tables are being attached for your perusal.
