At Taracon Precast, we know that having strong and durable flooring is critical to creating a successful building structure. Our prestressed hollowcore slabs are designed for use primarily as structural flooring components, however, they can also be used as roof deck components in buildings that have one or multiple levels.
The aspect of precast hollowcore slabs that makes them unique is their design that features hollowed out voids that run along the length of each panel. These tubular voids dramatically reduce the overall weight of each panel without sacrificing any of the structural strength it provides in the construction project.
The result is an easy-to- handle building component that spans large areas without the need for any additional steel and masonry work.
The hollow cores offer easy access to trade workers and act as service ducts and accommodation for wiring and the installation of other components required in the construction process.
If the interior of each tubular void is coated with insulating material the slabs can also function as ventilation ducts.
