The main benefits of composite slabs are as follows:
Versatility; they can be adapted to many practical cases and a multitude of solutions.
Resistance/Weight ratio; greater resistance with lese weight, thus enabling a global reduction of the structure’s weight. The minimum slab edge measures a mere 12 cm.
Quick installation; the absence of props means that more than one floor can be concreted at the same time, thus reducing construction time per floor.
Cost reduction; both in terms of labour costs and prices, as there is no need for props, and in terms of materials, as less concrete is used, which in turn means a lighter structure and less waste.
In addition to these advantages, we have the no less important benefits of easier construction, the non-contamination of other materials, easier stockpiling and cleaning, safe formwork and platform on which to work, the bracing of the structure and the ease with which the facilities are installed, among others.
