Fit Slab

VOIDED SLABS MIXED WITH REINFORCED CONCRETE


FIT SLAB IS A FORMWORK MADE OF POLYPROPYLENE; ITS PRINCIPAL FUNCTION IS LIGHTENING AND, WHEN USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH PREFABRICATED BEAMS MADE OF PRE-STRESSED REINFORCED CONCRETE, OR LATTICES OR DIRECTLY ON PREFABRICATED LATTICE SLABS, IT ENABLES THE CONSTRUCTION OF VARIOUS TYPES OF VOIDED SLABS MADE OF REINFORCED CONCRETE, WITH EXTREMELY QUICK INSTALLATION IN BOTH RECONSTRUCTIONS AND NEW BUILDINGS.

This construction technique is quick and practical and yields a higher-performance slab with a lower structural weight compared to that of floor slabs made using conventional methods such as hollow bricks or voided reinforced concrete. The use of Fit Slab leads to a significant reduction in the loads on the framework and elevated load-bearing walls as well as foundations. In addition, seismic activity which the slab transmits to the elevated structures are reduced in proportion to the weight of the slab. By taking advantage of the void below the Fit Slab modules, it is possible to install both transverse and longitudinal ducts, which are useful for the passage of electrical, water, heating installations.

ADVANTAGE

– Optimal mechanical strength properties;
– Reduction in costs for the construction of temporary retaining structures.
– Easily interlocking modules reduce laying time and cost. A team of three men can lay up to 200 square metres of slabs per day.
– Flexible implementation, practical and simple to scale down both lengthwise and width-wise.
– Reduction of seismic masses to enhance structural safety.
– Economical and practical in terms of transportation, handling and outside storage.
– Gives the slab the best fire resistance properties. For use in public buildings without false ceilings, it can be produced in the Class 1 and 0 versions by specific request.
– The void below the Fit Slab modules enables the passage of electrical, water and heating installations.
– Better site cleanup and waste disposal compared to conventional lightning measures (hollow bricks and EPS).
– On-site safety. With the slab shored up at the beams, Fit Slab supports the weight of the workers and the reinforced concrete.
– Underfoot safety for workers. Eliminates risk of collapse or falls resulting from the fragility of the hollow brick.
– Option of covering floor plans with articulated forms.

APPLICATIONS

Fit Slab facilitates the implementation of:
– Voided slabs with prefabricated beams made of prestressed reinforced concrete or lattices (Bausta);
– Voided slabs with plates made of reinforced concrete (prefabricated lattice slabs);
– Voided slabs made of reinforced concrete cast in situ with parallel or cross-hatched ribbing; For both for reconstruction and new buildings, in both civil and in industrial environments.

Fit Slab can also be used in seismic risk areas; in fact, the upper reinforced-concrete finishing slab can serve the purpose of a “plane diaphragm”, ensuring the complete transmission of horizontal forces to the primary anti-seismic system.

TECHNICAL DATA

Fit Slab has excellent mechanical strength and solidity properties and is designed so that the formworks interlock with each other.
Fit Slab is designed so that, if necessary, it can easily be cut lengthwise or width-wise.
