What determines the span of a concrete pavement?

  • Type of concrete floor: pre-stressed prestressed concrete floor, hollow stone ceiling, reinforced ready-mixed concrete, prefabricated concrete elements as a solid ceiling or other systems
  • Traffic load in kN / m2: span decreases with increasing load
  • Type and quantity of installed steel
  • Field width between the reinforcement
  • Type of concrete

Prestressed ready-made ceilings for flexible interior design

Prestressed precast floors are, as the name implies, very extensive. This allows the client to plan his rooms with particular flexibility. In addition, this type of ceiling is installed in a fully assembled manner to save time.

Tips & Tricks

If you decide in favor of a prestressed concrete floor, then inquire about the other technical possibilities before installation: You can, for example, combine your concrete ceiling with a heater or air conditioning system.
