RIB & BLOCK SLABS

We handle the design, supply and installation of Rib & Block Slab Systems. This highly successful, innovative design offers versatility for apertures, irregular shapes and down lighters. Furthermore, precast concrete hollow block slabs exhibit excellent structural integrity, improved sound and heat insulation. It also allows for a high quality plastered soffit finish.

THERMAL SLAB SYSTEM

As per the new amendment to the National Building Regulations in the form of SANS 10400XA, a legislation governing the use of energy efficient building methods , we have developed a system in which we use a combination of pre-stressed ribs and a moulded EPS (expanded polystyrene). This system has excellent thermal properties, saves energy, saves costs and also contributes to saving the environment through cheaper delivery costs for transport.

T-BEAM PROPLESS SYSTEM

We handle the design, supply and installation of T-Beam Propless Rib & Block Slab Systems. Another highly successful, innovative design offering versatility for apertures, irregular shapes and down lighters. Furthermore, it requires 60 % less propping on long spans exceeding 5m and completely propless up to 4.5m.

SOLID AND IN-SITU CONCRETE WORKS

Let our team design, supply and install all forms of solid and in-situ concrete works. These range from floors, slabs and columns to name a few, this also includes the related formwork as well.

RAFT FOUNDATIONS

Where soil conditions are unfavourable (Clay or collapsible soil) Raft Foundations are used to ensure a stable platform created for the building. The system allows for no separate movement, as the beams are vertically installed with stiffener ribs. This binds the whole system together, forcing it to act as one entity. The other advantage is that the surface is cast with the ground beams which again bond the system even further.

EARTHWORKS & EXCAVATIONS

We can handle your earthworks needs for your projects, no matter what the scale.
