The ideal solution for large floor spans
Double Tee is a large, prestressed precast concrete unit which, with the addition of an in situ topping, forms a structural suspended floor suitable for use in most types of buildings. They are an excellent choice for, commercial buildings, car-parks and supermarkets where large, column-free spaces are required. They are also very suited for steel frame buildings especially apartment buildings. Being a 3.000m wide unit extremely fast construction times are realized with the shorter spans and shallow depths. Being an un propped system other trades can follow on in the lower floors as there is no back propping.
The Double Tee system’s 3.000m wide unit and span size results in faster construction times. The units require no temporary propping and once in place provide an immediate working platform. The large span can also simplify the floor support system, and when used with a Shell Beam, gives further economic and time savings.
