Raised Floor Concreting Explained
What is Raised Floor Concrete?
The main purpose of raised floor concrete is to form functional floors for structure & fireproofing. Most raised concrete floors are laid to a uniform thickness and often follow the movement and flex of its decking. Concreting for raised floors rarely requires a high degree of flatness.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT STUFF
Raised Floor Concrete
Raised floor concrete is often used 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
When concreting for raised floor you’ll typically have low requirements for levelness so Screed Rail or Hand Lay methods are both suitable. Many clients opt for the Hand Lay methods as its the most cost efficient for the results required. Most raised floor concrete is 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.

Raised floor concrete 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 floor concreting is finished to an SR3 Tolerance.
