Floor beams are designed and manufactured to BS8110: Part 1 and satisfy the ‘moderate’ exposure condition as defined in BS8110. We offer three profiles for the 150mm deep beam section and a 225mm deep section.
Their low self weight and rapid construction offers the designer a flexible and economic answer to flooring situations. A beam and block floor provides a simple all weather form of construction and an immediate working platform. .
The pre-stressed floor units will provide a fire resistance of one hour when used with concrete infill blocks. This can be enhanced by the application of suitable finishes. .
Floor beams are manufactured to the nearest 50mm increments and if necessary can be cut to suit any lengths required.
Beams supported on masonry structures require a minimum bearing of 100mm, steel structures require a minimum bearing of 75mm in accordance with BS8110.
Floor beams can be delivered on a variety of delivery vehicles to suit the site conditions.
The Contractor must inspect the floor units at the time of delivery on Supply Only contracts and sign the delivery ticket, as no liability for damage can be accepted at a later date
Infill Blocks should be concrete or aerated concrete blocks, generally 440 x 215 x 100mm and be a minimum 3.5N/mm2 compressive strength and able to support a transverse load of 3.5kN. Blocks are to 100mm thick, solid and manufactured in accordance with BS6073. Block densities vary between 650kg/m3 and 2000kg/m3 depending on the block used.
