Construction Benefits

Hollowcore helps to speed up the construction process. In less than one day, and in most weather conditions, an experienced erection crew can install Hollowcore plank with a mobile crane for a typical garage floor. Hollowcore is hoisted from a flatbed trailer, placed directly on the supporting structure connected to steel framing, masonry or cast-in-place concrete walls. Plank-to-plank joints are leveled and grouted, creating an instant flat work deck.

As a contractor-friendly building material, Hollowcore from County Materials is easy to install, and works efficiently with heating, air-conditioning, plumbing and electrical trades. Planks are made to specified lengths for each project, accommodating house plan with unique angles and curves.
