When constructing a multi-unit or multi-purpose building, architects and engineers are challenged with finding a solution that allows for quick erection, increased safety and design versatility. County Materials’ Hollowcore Roof and Floor Systems are a high-performance solution that meets project specifications and shortens construction schedules.
Hollowcore plank is a resilient building material that supports high load capacities across long, open spans, eliminating the need for extra load bearing columns. Its prestressed fabrication helps the planks achieve high-performance strength with the use of less concrete. This design allows for unobstructed ceilings that maximize the usable space.
When building multi-unit facilities, safety becomes an increasing concern. County Materials’ Hollowcore Roof and Floor Systems are inherently durable and trusted to keep people and possessions safe. Prestressed concrete is naturally resistant to corrosion and rot and maintains its structural integrity though extreme conditions. Hollowcore meets fire ratings up to three hours and does not burn, preventing lethal fumes and smoke.
Unmatched Design Versatility
Hollowcore is cut to specified lengths and arrives on site ready to install, saving time and cost during construction. County Materials manufactures hollowcore planks in depths of 8”, 10” and 12”. Our 12” plank allows for spans up to 44’ at 50 psf and can be used to create large, unobstructed spaces that are required of parking structures, high-rise offices, multi-unit housing, hotels and other applications. Hollowcore is designed to work alongside other building materials, including concrete masonry, steel framing and cast-in-place wall systems.
