Post subject: Request more information on this topic

Hi Girish,

Just viewed your post on Hollow core slabs. I am planning to construct my house very soon and looking forward for clean long spans in part of the construction. So I seek more information on this topic from you.

Can you shed some light on the comparison between conventional slabs and hollow core slabs, for the same quality & strength, in respect of saving in material, costs involved, skill of the labour required, etc? What are the factors governing use of hollow core slabs in the architectural design of a house? How should one plan ahead & place the order? Where are these slabs available from? Any precaustions during transport? merits & de-merits concerning water-proofing treatmentes?

Further, I would like to know if someone has ustilised such slabs for construction of any residential project and would be grateful if you could share the address of the project so that I can physically visit.

 

Thanks,

Shridharan

In India you may please visit this precast hollow core slab manufacture to avail more informations.

http://www.precastbuildcon.com/

The advantages are listed above. the hollow core slabs are much lighter in weight with same strength and even easy for electrical conduit installations.

Biggest advantage being time saving and easy to install and specially if you are looking for large span of area like having a big hall without any beams intercepting, hollow core slab is perfect.

You will get majority of questions answers from the above manufacturer site and sales support dept.

Regards

Girish
