Product Description

Ground-bearing floor slabs are most commonly found within industrial installations, such as warehouses or factories. Nevertheless, they can also be installed in all types of structures where there is no basement, provided that ground conditions are suitable. The design and detailing of these slabs is an in-depth process, as the interaction between the natural and/or made ground and the rigid concrete floor slab presents challenges with respect to cracking, movement and flatness.
