• OUR PRODUCT •

ECONO Rib and Block is the trademark of our highly economical suspended flooring system.

 

The two-part system, consisting of ‘ribs’ and ‘blocks’, forms permanent shutters for the quick and economical construction of floors in multi-story buildings.

The ‘Ribs’ or Lintels: these are reinforced, precast concrete sections that are used to span between walls. The reinforcing steel is in the form of a lattice, protruding positively from the concrete to strengthen the lintel for transport, as well as to supply shear strength in the floor. The lattice is tied-in to steel mesh and other before casting of concrete.

 

The ‘Blocks’ are hollow section precast units, placed to span the ribs, thus completing the shutter.

 

The steel lattices are tied in to steel mesh and other supporting structural components, and the floor is cast in–situ with concrete.

 

With this innovative Rib and Block system, we can assist with the following economical building solutions: suspended flooring, suspended concrete slabs, concrete flooring, casting concrete slabs, construction of slabs and installing concrete slabs
