Concrete slabs Melbourne are essential part of any modern building, whether commercial or residential in nature. Usually, rectangular, flat, and strong in nature having 10-50 centimetre thickness, the concrete slabs are used in floors, roofs, bridge decks, and elsewhere for providing strength to the buildings.
Slabs are also used for constructing the ground floors of buildings and for constructing the floors and ceilings for each level.
Slabs can be supported directly on the sub soil or on the foundations. Before constructing the slabs, the size and distance of the slab is measured and once the desired distance is achieved, a mould is made to hold the concrete mix. Properly filled mould with concrete ensures that the corners of the slabs are reinforced properly. Once the mix gets hardened, the slab is ready.
Since lain concrete slabs do not look attractive, they are usually decorated with coloured stones and rocks. For gardens and sidewalks, slabs are painted in dark colours and are decorated to enhance the overall aesthetics of gardens and outdoor living areas. Coloured slabs help reduce the glare of the sun and prevent any accident from taking place.
Concrete slabs are available in several shapes and styles. Corrugates slabs, ribbed slabs, one way slab, two way slab, and waffle slabs are to name but a few of the concrete slabs that are available in the market. Each of the slabs offer different level of protection and should therefore be chosen carefully, depending on the nature of the building and its use and purpose.
Slabs Melbourne for ground floor are usually harder than those used for exterior pavements and constructions.
