Reinforced Concrete Raised Floor
Due to the fact that the reinforced concrete floors constructed using ABS Disposable Formworks are 95% empty, the void space could be used to pass electrical/mechanical installations in a manner similar to modular raised floors.
The system can be used as an alternative to all modular raised floors applications with metal pedestals. In addition, each commercial area to be filled with 8-10 cm dry screed can be converted to a reinforced concrete raised floor using ABS Level Disposable Formworks and junction boxes. The volume that normally would have been lost, can now be used to pass through electrical as well as mechanical installations increasing the total usage area of the building.
▶︎ Most economic application: it is more than 60% more economical than modular raised floors with metal pedestals and composite panels.
▶︎ Passage of technical installations: almost any sort of technical (electrical, mechanical, etc.) installations can be passed through the void space that gets created under the reinforced raised floor. Through the use of junction boxes fixed at certain intervals, space can be reached from above at very low operational costs.
▶︎ High load bearing capacity: hundreds of columns, arches and domes that get created in the concrete form a continuous structure with a high load-bearing capacity.
▶︎ Continuous concrete surface: any sort of covering application (epoxy paint, wood flooring, asphalt etc.) can be applied on the surface very easily.
▶︎ Installation of separators: any sort of covering application (epoxy paint, wood flooring, asphalt etc.) can be applied on the surface very easily.
▶︎ Fast and easy installation: as fast as 100 m2hour. Installation does not require any skilled labor.
▶︎ Heat and sound insulation: the void space will provide heat and sound insulation and if ventilated it could also deter humidity and mildew.
▶︎ Environmental value: because the disposable formworks are made of recycled PP they help to gain considerable LEED certificate points.
