House Slab Packages

Types of House Slab Packages at Steel and Systems

When it comes to residential slab construction, choosing the right foundation system is crucial for ensuring structural integrity, longevity, and cost-effectiveness. At Steel and Systems, we pride ourselves on being house slab experts, offering a comprehensive range of slab packages tailored to meet the diverse needs of homeowners and builders. Let’s dive deep into the types of house slab packages available, including waffle pod slabs, raft slabs (slab on ground), and plastic void former systems.

Waffle Pod Slab Packages

Waffle pod slabs are a popular choice for residential construction due to their excellent thermal performance; cost-effectiveness, & easy installation. This innovative system consists of a grid of polystyrene pods arranged in a waffle-like pattern; which are placed over a prepared ground surface. Steel reinforcement is then added & followed by concrete pouring to create a powerful & insulated foundation. Waffle pod slabs offer superior thermal insulation; reducing heat transfer & power consumption; making them suitable for energy-efficient spaces.

Raft Slab Package (Slab on Ground Package)

Raft slabs, also referred to as slab-on-ground packages, provide a solid & stable foundation for residential buildings, particularly on sites with reactive soils or poor ground conditions. This type of slab is constructed by pouring a single, thick layer of concrete directly onto the ground surface, eliminating the need for extensive digging. Steel reinforcement is incorporated within the concrete to enhance structural strength & durability. Raft slabs offer excellent stability and resistance to ground movement, making them suitable for a wide range of soil types and residential building designs.

Plastic Void Former Systems

Plastic void former systems, such as EPS (expanded polystyrene) pods or HIPS (high-impact polystyrene) pods, are innovative solutions used for conventional concrete slabs to reduce material usage & increase efficiency. These lightweight pods are placed within the concrete slab at predetermined intervals, creating gaps that help to minimise concrete usage while maintaining structural integrity. Plastic void former systems offer benefits such as reduced material costs, improved insulation properties, and enhanced construction speed, making them a sustainable & cost-effective choice for residential slab construction.
