The load bearing qualities of the wall panels means that the designers and the end user have considerable freedom of choice in selecting the type of floors they require. The ELCON Building System provides options for using solid hollow, pre-stressed, cored or troughed precast concrete floors. The floors can be smooth finished enabling floor screeds to be dispensed with in certain situations. Where ELCON are requested to provide floor screeds, these are reinforced to prevent cracking and to permit plastic electrical distribution conduit to be incorporated in the screed below the fabric reinforcement.
The most popular floor system is a composite floor slab of precast concrete slabs with a structural reinforced floor topping. The topping acts as a floor screed and the precast slabs have a smooth soffit for direct paint application.
