The SL-Deck is a new and patented precast deck system developed by Abeo A/S. The deck combines the strength of reinforced concrete with the low weight of light-aggregate concrete, which gives a strong lightweight element of 321 kg/m2 that can handle heavy loads and long spans.
The design of the SL-Deck is a completely new way of thinking precast decking systems. Hence, the optimized deck design makes the SL-Deck capable of coping with a wide range of problems that traditional deck systems struggle with. Besides low weight and long spans, a great benefit of the SL-Deck is its high degree of flexibility, which means that it can easily be adjusted according to project specific requirements.
The combination of ordinary concrete and light-aggregate concrete gives the SL-Deck fantastic soundproofing qualities which are about twice as good as similar hollow core slabs. At the same time, the undersurface of light-aggregate concrete protects the reinforcement and load-bearing concrete during fire, making the SL-Deck capable of withstanding4 hours of standard fire. When it comes to sound and fire properties, it is thus safe to say that the SL-Deck is the best precast decking system on the market. All in all, the SL-Deck makes it possible to save processes on the construction site and reduce total costs.
