Great for suspended floors in new double-storey residential & commercial buildings. It is ideal for replacing rotten or damaged suspended wooden floors in existing buildings, installing mezzanine floors in double volume spaces and creating new balconies. Perfectly suited as a suspended floor at ground level without the expense/problems of fill & slab methods.
Windeck® comes as a finished product, which means no additional toppings or finishes required. It’s installed by bricklayers (no specialist installers), and does not require heavy machinery. This all adds up to massive cost savings.
Windeck® is the lightest precast concrete flooring system on the market. A modular flooring system assembled on site, which means it may be installed by hand, and without unnecessary heavy lifting equipment. This all reduces weight and cost of the building.
Windeck® comes to site at full 50mPa concrete strength. No propping needed. No 'in-situ' concrete and therefore no complex and costly reinforcing is required. It is assembled on site with manual labour, as a quick modular standard building method.
Windeck® is a prestressed concrete, manually-assembled, suspended floor system comprising prestressed concrete beams and reinforced concrete tiles.
Dimensionally, Windeck is based on a 450 mm module. The Windeck® assembly results in an off-the-shutter tile top surface, off-the-shutter surfaces to the beams and a self finished underside to the tiles.
Other finishes may be applied if desired. Windeck® accepts electrical cabling between tiles before grouting and tooling, and is fire resistant (SABS Tested 30mins Rating). Two beam depths and four tile types together with two types of end panels provide the components to meet most requirements.
Full structural information and component options are contained in our system catalogue.
Windeck® brings a fresh approach to suspended flooring and is a cost effective alternative to conventional in-situ concrete slabs and suspended wooden floors.
Available in two sizes, the DB170 beam is 170mm deep and designed to coincide with two brick courses. The DB250 beam is 250mm deep and is designed to coincide with three brick courses.
The tiles are dimensioned on a 450mm module in both directions and are 50mm thick and reinforced to withstand a point load. The actual tile size is 435mm in both directions to allow for a 10mm joint between tiles.
The sides of the tiles are sloped outwards allowing the tiles to be butted against each other in a longitudinal direction. The joint width is designed to accommodate a twin and earth electrical cable which would be placed before grouting. All 50mm thick tiles may be fitted with an electrical conduit and a connection box.
A 20mm thick tile has been designed to match the standard tile in order to be laid on a concrete surface bed.
This beam is 170mm deep and designed to coincide with two brick courses. This beam weighs 27.07kg per meter, which equates to 60.16kg/m2, and is designed to span a maximum of 4400mm with domestic loading (1.5kN/m2). Total mass of Windeck® floor including tiles equals 171.81kg/m2.
This beam is 250mm deep and designed to coincide with three brick courses. It is perforated with 90mm diameter holes at 150mm centres to reduce mass and provide apertures for services and easy handling. This beam weighs 31.80kg per meter which equates to 70.67kg/m2 and is designed to span a maximum of 6050mm with domestic loading (1.5kN/m2). Total mass of Windeck® floor including tiles equals: 182.32kg/m2.
*Some DB250 beams come with no holes, due to mould adjustments
