What exactly are Concrete Slabs?

Why do you need concrete slabs?

The purpose of a concrete slab, which is a ubiquitous and essential structural feature, is to provide smooth, usable surfaces. It's a horizontal structural part with parallel or nearly parallel top and bottom surfaces. In comparison to its span, the depth of a concrete slab floor is very little. Slabs can be protected on two sides only or all four sides with beams. We use concrete slabs as a support on the foundations or directly on the subsoil to create the ground floor in many of our domestic projects. The slab is considered 'ground-bearing' if it lies directly on the foundation, but it is considered 'suspended' if it does not.

To keep a home running efficiently, we usually put concrete slabs over a layer of insulation. This also allows for the installation of underfloor heating pipes in your house. Prefabricated concrete slabs are used, installed in a factory, and transported to the job site by us, ready to be lowered into position between steel or concrete beams.

Different Types of Concrete Slabs:

1. Suspended Slab - Suspended slabs are formed and poured in place, using either removable or "missing" non-loadbearing formwork or permanent formwork that serves as reinforcement.

2. Slab-on-ground - The most popular type is slab-on-site, which comes in two varieties: traditional slabs with deep excavated beams and waffle pod slabs. This sits near ground level a grid of expanded polystyrene foam pods as void formers, resulting in a labyrinth of beams in between. Waffle pods are, by definition, insulated beneath the broad floor panels, whereas conventional slabs may be insulated beneath the broad floor panels. Insulating the slab edge may support both of them.

3. Precast Slab - Precast slabs are built off-site and craned into place, either fully finished or with a thin layer of concrete poured on top. Precast concrete can be used for floors, walls, and even roofs in any form of domestic structure, from single-family homes to multi-story apartment buildings. The high initial embodied energy of concrete can be compensated by its long life cycle of up to 100 years and high reuse and relocation capacity.
