Sunken Slab Filling
In commercial buildings in particular, sunken slabs may be required on ground floors or podium areas. By using ABS Disposable Formworks, these areas can be raised to the height specifications of architectural plans. Constructing reinforced concrete raised floors by using ABS Disposable Formworks is one of the lightest and most practical solutions to leveling differences.
In multi-use projects, different parts of a building on a common floor may not be level. The lower “sunken slab” therefore has to be raised to the height of the more dominant slab. Constructing a lightweight reinforced concrete raised floor using ABS Disposable Formworks is fast and economical. ABS Disposable Formworks also offer an extra benefit: by allowing MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) installations to pass through the void space, they add what would normally be lost space to the functional area of the structure.
Sunken slabs are also used in wet areas where plumbing installations have to pass through either below or adjacent areas. Depending on the total sunken slab area in a given project, ABS Disposable Formworks can be considered for filling these areas after installations have been put in place.
