- We don't design concrete slabs.
- We don't install concrete slabs.
POLYSLAB - Rib & Block Void Former Or Decking Blocks
- POLYSLAB Blocks are expanded polystyrene decking blocks or void formers used in rib & block slab construction.
- POLYSLAB Blocks are used instead of traditional ash blocks and they are placed between the concrete lintels to create a base on which the final concrete slab can be cast.
Benefits of using PolySlab Blocks instead of Ash Blocks
- POLYSLAB Blocks are lightweight and easy to lift in multi-story building projects.
- They significantly reduce they final weight of the concrete slab.
- They increase the rate at which concrete slabs can be prepared and constructed.
- Lightweight slabs reduce the amount of jacking supports required and the time that such supports need to remain in place.
- This means that work can resume faster during the curing period of the concrete slab.
- They increase the thermal and acoustic properties of the concrete slab.
Most Requested Block Sizes & Dimensions:
- Below you will see our standard blocks dimensions.
- To avoid wastage and costs the blocks are all 1200mm long.
- We can custom-cut blocks if necessary.
Most Requested POLYSLAB Block Thicknesses:
- Once again, we don't specify block thickness. Your engineer will have to specify the block thickness and density requirements based on their actual engineering design.
- The most common block thicknesses based on the concrete slab thickness can be seen below.
|Final Concrete Slab Thickness||PolySlab Block Thickness|
POLYSLAB Design Properties:
- Your engineer can use these properties to finalise your concrete slab design.
|Density||Compressive Strength||Cross-Breaking Strength|
|X-Grade||60 kPa @ 10% compression||80 kPa @ 1% compression|
|20DV||110 kPa @ 10% compression||150 kPa @ 1% compression|
