THE ADVANTAGES OF DCON PRE-STRESSED PLANK
- Strength as they are designed to be simple beam structure, that means the structure in using condition will yield more bending strength due to continueous structure.
- Flattened base can help saving coating work by only grouting at the connection before painting.
- Smooth and dense bottom surface will reduce painting cost.
- Connector steel on the top of plank with help making the composite slab.
- Side steel plates will help adjusting level of each plank and also load transferring.
- Easy to install Lighter weight per square meter and thinner than other slab system which can help reducing building’s height.
- Flattened base will be completely placed on the beam, therefore the structure will not need additional brick works to fill the gap or painting on that area.
