CONCRETE FOR RAISED FLOOR
Choosing the right stuff
The nature of raised floors in a multi-storey is to form functional floors for structure and fireproofing. Typically you’ll need a metal or concrete slab decking to be provided by others to allow us to pour concrete on. The decking contractor would normally install edge trim to retain the concrete and fill any gaps in the decking. We can then install steel reinforcement and mesh as required with day joints prior to pouring.
Types of Lay
For raised floors the key restriction to the project is the ability for access. A raised floor typically has low requirements for levelness so Screed Rail or Hand Lay methods are both suitable. Most clients opt for the Hand Lay methods as its the most cost efficient for the results required. Most raised floors are laid to a uniform thickness that follows the movement and flex of the decking, but with screed rails and propping, we have achieved tolerances as high as FM3.

A raised floor can usually be left with just a skipfloat finish as high flatness levels are rarely required. In some instances, when you plan to have an exposed concrete floor or thin overlay, you will want to consider a Power Float finish. Most raised floors are finished to an SR3 Tolerance.
