The SL-deck combines the flexibility from self-compacting concrete (SCC) with the speed and cost-efficiency of prefabrication.
This means that the SL-deck’s geometry can accommodate modern building designs. E.g. SL-decks can be delivered with rounded ends or sides fitting in with the building geometry eliminating on-site casting and ensuring a faster installation period with fewer risks for flaws and deficiencies.
Special slab geometries are made effectively in production as the full-automatic LAC-machine can leave out blocks in the relevant areas. The machine is controlled by a production planning software feeding the machine with an input file of the relevant production plan.
Triangular slabs (for round buildings)
Rounded sides and ends
Besides the outer geometry, SL-decks can also be delivered with openings of many shapes. As reinforcement can be added locally, very large openings compared to other types of precast slabs can be created.
