Our Concrete Floor Beams
Normally the construction of a ground floor involves pouring a large mass of wet, reinforced concrete onto the ground – this can be expensive, time consuming and weather dependant. Adopting the ‘Block and Beam floor’ method is a simple, cost effective and efficient alternative solution.
Our TS150 concrete beams can be laid across or in between walls, the gaps in between are then filled with 7N concrete blocks, these blocks also provide increased thermal qualities.
Further benefits of adopting this method of floor construction include:
- Elimination of ‘bounce’ that often comes with timber floors, also ‘beam and block’ floors do not creak.
- Good sound insulation qualities are also a bi-product of this method of floor construction.
- Installation of a reinforced beam floor is simple, the technique used is easy to lean and execute.
- When installed, the flooring is ready to be used as a working platform, permitting inner leaf construction work to begin, it is an all weather platform.
