Hollowcore gets its strength from pretensioned steel strands that are embedded in high strength concrete. Continuous voids in the planks reduce their overall weight and help keep biulding costs in check. Hollowcore is an efficient and economical choice for various climates and unique project applications that demand high load capacities, long spans and shallow working spaces.
Hollowcore planks reduce the cost of interior finishing. Since the surfaces are uniform, minimal preparation is required to accomodate direct installation of floor coverings such as padding and carpeting. And, for a simple yet attractive finish, the underside can be painted or sprayed with acoustical coatings. This eliminates shadowing efffects and the use of drop ceilings or other ceiling treatments. Time for finish work is saved, which also helps achieve amazing results within a tight budget.
