Hollowcore plank is a prestressed concrete member primarily used for floor and roof decks. Serving as a combined deck and ceiling system, the planks erect quickly to reduce on-site labor needs and are capable of spanning long open spaces to aid design flexibility. Continuous, interior voids add structural stability, reduce..
Precast concrete beams (rectangular beams, inverted tee beams, and L-beams) are typically considered structural components that support deck components such as double tees and hollow-core slabs. Square or rectangular precast concrete columns typically support cross members such as beams, spandrels, or panels

Dec 22, 2014 . Photo 1 shows a close-up of a truckload of hollow core precast concrete plank being delivered to a construction job site. These plank are 12 inches (30.5 cm) thick and will become part of a floor-ceiling assembly separating two floors of offices. The plank on this truck are of two types: insulated and..
Long Span Construction Hollow core plank allows longer spans, much thinner decks and greater rigidity when compared with steel or wood joist flooring systems, and is lighter than poured-in-place concrete construction. Due to the hollow core prestressed design, span length is increased. This eliminates obstructing..
Primarily used for floors and roof decks, Hollow Core is a precast slab of prestressed concrete designed for greater structural efficiency. Molin Concrete offers two types of Hollow Core plank: Flexicore and Extruded. Our product options give you the design flexibility you need while reducing your lead time
Hollowcore. Precast floors and in particular hollowcore floors offer many advantages over alternative methods, such as in-situ concrete, metal deck and timber. Prestressed hollowcore floors provide the most economical flooring system for the widest variety of situations in masonry, steel and concrete structures, providing the..
With its strong, durable, uniform deck, hollowcore becomes the forming surface for a cast-in-place concrete topping which helps provide diaphragm action and enhanced structural performance. The finished surface is ready for carpet, tile, marble, or other finishes. Hollowcore can also provide a finished ceiling surface that..
