Shuttering To The Museum

SBS floor system is a revolutionary alternative to in-situ concrete slabs.
It is a cost saving, economical solution to construct your home, office, shop or warehouse. This novel creation was introduced by International Construction Consortium (ICC) one of Sri Lanka’s leading contractors with multi capabilities in the construction industry.

ICC which was established in 1980 is an ISO 9001:2000 certified construction company and has won the IFAWPCA gold medal for civil engineering construction in 2002 and ICTAD  award for construction excellence in 2002, 2003 and 2004.

The SBS floor slab system is a strong alternative to conventional concrete slabs. It  has a multitude of advantages while gathering rapid demand at present in the construction industry. This SBS slab requires no scaffoldings, props and shuttering.

Installation of the SBS floor system is simple, just by placing SBS beams on walls, in filling with masonry blocks, laying mesh reinforcement and topping off  with concrete screed. The SBS slab system is made up of pre-stressed beams, concrete masonry soffit blocks, distribution re-enforcement GI weld mesh and structural concrete topping.

It is very interesting to note that the SBS slab system now provides and attractive method of making balconies without projecting structural beams from the building. This innovation has become increasingly popular among builders.

The main features of SBS floors are:

Rapid method of construction – utilization of pre-cast elements and the non use of form work.

A convenient method – does not require skilled labour for installation.

Provision of double beams or continuous beams for heavy partitions or loading.
This system does not require prior knowledge of site conditions.

Residential slabs are normally designed to impose 150kg per square meter, but SBS slabs can withstand  loads more than 500kg per square meter.

This SBS Slab is the best solution for the escalating material and labour costs. This novel creation is cost effective, efficient, time saving, safe and quality assured.
