GROUND FLOOR SLAB Concrete installations
Choosing the right stuff
The nature of a Ground Floor Slab is to form a structural base to a house, office or apartment block and as such strength is the defining factor. You’ll need steel reinforcement and joint detailing for strength and shuttering to contain the concrete pour. The engineer may have also specified insulation and a DPM/GAS membrane under the floor.
Types of Lay
When deciding on the most appropriate lay option for the Ground Floor Slab we’ll look at access points in order to decide whether it’s viable to use our Laser Screed Machine. If it’s not viable we’ll look to see whether we need to install a Screed Rail system or we’ll opt for a hand lay. In most cases, we find that Laser Screed or Screed Rail are only needed if the floor requires a high level of tolerance. (More information on Floor Tolerance Classes).
Choosing a suitable finishing method depends on whether the ground floor slab is exposed or covered. In most instances, a flatness threshold of FM2 to FM3 will suffice and as such, you can opt for any of the types of finish to meet your specification. If it is going to be exposed as a finished floor or received only a thin covering, a powerfloated finish is best to give a smooth finish. If the floor will be covered by screed, latex or insulation then a skipfloat finish by hand is usually sufficient and cheaper than power floating.
