absorbed during the day and
released during the night.
A Solid Home
A hollow core slab offers the ideal
structural section by reducing the
deadweight whilst providing the
maximum structural efficiency
within the slab depth.
A Quieter Home
The use of concrete floor slabs
between levels has proven to cut
noise transfer by over 50%. Using
concrete floors instead of timber also
eliminates creaking floor joists.
A standard size house can usually be covered with Kilcarrig
Precast flooring slabs in less than half a day. Floors can be
grouted the same day and ready for use as a working
platform the following day. This quick turn around enables
greater turnover than with the traditional timber joist system
at first floor level or fill and pour at ground floor level.
Underfloor Heating Made Easy
Concrete floors such as those manufactured by Kilcarrig
Precast are the preferable option when using an underfloor
heating system. Underfloor heating manufacturers recommend that placing the heating pipes within a concrete screed
offers "the highest thermal capacity" as against timber
alternatives. Be cost effective when compared to traditional
Kilcarrig Precast flooring slabs are narrower and
therefore lighter than most other concrete flooring
products. This enables the majority of Kilcarrig
Precast slabs, supplied to both ground and first floor
level, to be placed by our lorry mounted cranes.floor
level or fill and pour at ground floor level.
Safe Working Platform Provided
A grouted Kilcarrig Precast floor provides a safe
working platform for following trades which simplifies
health and safety management. The time and material
required for scaffolding will be reduced.
