LARGE FREE SPAN
Slimline enables the realization of exceptional designs with unprecedented (re)compartmentation options. The self-supporting floor elements can be used to create large free spans of over 16 meters. Combined with the accessible building installations, the floor layouts remain fully adaptable. Furthermore, the large free span allows you to create, for example, a beautifully spacious atrium or a reception hall without columns.
Slimline is substantially lighter than alternative building systems. The total weight of a Slimline floor including subfloor for common spans and loads is approximately 350 kg/m2. This allows achieving weight savings on the entire building of up to 50%. It also holds additional benefits for the required foundation and increases the possibilities to expand existing buildings with Slimline.
BUILDING DRY & QUICK
Slimline enables fast and straightforward construction. Thanks to the self-supporting prefabricated elements, propping is no longer necessary. The elements are instantly walkable after placement, which means the fitting of installations and finishing can commence immediately without impacting other activities. This allows merging multiple construction phases, which results in considerable savings on construction time and costs.
Slimline extends the building lifespan. Since the building installations aren’t poured in and remain permanently accessible, for example by means of Flex Zones, floor layouts can be easily changed, spaces can be conveniently merged or separated, and the installations can be updated to incorporate the latest standards. Over time, it’s even possible to change the function of (parts of) the building, for example from office to apartment or residential care, without the need for major reconstruction.
