The Hollow Core Slab is manufactured in a standard 4» width and 8″, 6″ and 12″ thickness using a continuous concrete extrusion process. Hollow core slabs are produced in a factory environment by the combination of a long time extrusion process that places concrete and forms continuous voids as the machine travels the length of the pre-casting hall.
The Hollow Core Slab has a variety of uses, including floors and roofs for buildings and parking garages, decks for piers and short-span bridges, lids for storm water detention vaults, and lagging for retaining walls. Cast-in-place, composite concrete topping may be added to provide a smooth, level floor surface that serves as a horizontal diaphragm when properly reinforced. In un-topped or non-composite topping applications, the horizontal diaphragm is provided by shear friction reinforcement in the grouted shear keys and in the end closure pours.
