Benefits

Hollowcore floor planks are nominally 1200mm wide and available in thicknesses of 150mm, 200mm, 250mm, and 300mm. The come in two forms: 1) artificially roughened on the upper face to provide high interface shear capacity with an in-situ concrete topping layer; and 2) smoothed by application of a machine-trowelled mortar layer during manufacture for light load applications, including multi-level carparks, office buildings, and apartment buildings.

 

Dependent on load requirements, clear spans of up to 14 metres can be obtained at costs which are lower than most flooring systems.
