ADVANTAGES:
• Factory produced, high quality elements of steel and concrete • Quick erection due to dry construction, almost independent from weather conditions • Reduced overall building height due to integrated floor beams (INODEK) • Easier and lower- cost installation of heating and ventilation systems • Free spans up to 13 m

INODEK-BEAM: Integrated steel beams with a wider, non-symetrical lower flange, on which the hollow-core concrete elements are laid, are used as floor beams. Steel quality according to EN 10025, corresponding to S 355. Fire protection is easily achieved, at lower cost, by protecting only the lower flange of the floor beams.

HOLLOW-CORE ELEMENTS: Floor decking is made-to-measure and offers a smooth underside finish. • Concrete quality: C 55 according to EN • Thickness : 20, 27, 32 or 40 cm • Width: 1.20 m (cut-to-length on demand) • Spans: up to 13 m • Fire resistance: 30 - 120 min.
