COBIAX SLAB PDF

Voided biaxial slabs are reinforced concrete slabs in which voids reduce the amount of concrete. While concrete has been used for thousands of years, the use. Cobiax [1] slabs contain synethic void forming modules making slabs up to 35% lighter. This has a huge benefit for floor slabs in buildings as. efficient economic sustainable lightweight concrete slabs. Germany. Heinze Cobiax Deutschland GmbH. Otto-von-Guericke-Ring D Wiesbaden.

Although this principle of material reduction in statically unimportant areas of construction has been tried and tested for a long time, and is frequently used e. In buildings, most of the concrete is used in the slabs. But the use of concrete, with its high consumption of resources, can be usefully optimised by the implementation of slaab voided building methods; the Cobiax technology even offers a biaxial loadbearing effect. Traditionally, Cobiax void formers are incorporated into the building process on the construction site in-situ concreteaccording to the construction requirements.

But they can also be incorporated as industrially manufactured, fully precast elements, or in a combination with precast elements. The voids in the concrete slab, which is to sslab cast later, are inserted in the form of void formers or structural formers, both made out of plastic. The concrete then flows into the correct static structure; the formers keep the voids open.

This results in a high weight-bearing slab construction, that not only saves material concretebut also enables larger spaces to be spanned at the same weight. A rough calculation already indicates how efficient cobiad with Cobiax is: Advances in building soab should never be at the expense of safety.

So, construction companies, engineers, architects and builders can coboax assured that they will reap the benefits of the many advantages of Cobiax voided systems, without the slightest risk in terms of structural stability.

Cobiax voided flat plate slab systems enable larger areas to be spanned, at the same weight.

The architect is released from structural limitations and is able to plan more freely. A building that is lighter and slimmer overall, cobiaax be planned.

This not only results in pleasing aesthetics. It also reduces the amount of material required. Thanks to the limited weight of the Cobiax slabs, fewer columns are required; additional rooms, with all of the advantages of aesthetics and flexible use, are possible.

Building with Cobiax always means making a commitment to future-oriented solutions in the area of resource conservation and sustainability. Therefore, it is with good reason that buildings that contain Cobiax technologies have won international prizes. By planning with Cobiax, architects clearly underpin their innovativeness and their commitment to modern, contemporary building methods.

Slabs, walls, columns and foundations can be optimised for the reduced load-bearing capacity — they are lighter and smaller, and therefore cheaper. Beam solutions often require time-consuming intermediate steps during the building process. With Cobiax technologies, these beam constructions are no longer necessary — building time is reduced and the building can be put into operation sooner.

Columns and beams limit the design possibilities for the entire space. They determine the division of the building into individual rooms or at least dictate the structure of the aesthetic impression. Cobiax technologies avoid these limitations — they enable wider scopes, which offer completely new opportunities for use, as required. In dynamic markets and social models, this flexibility offers considerable economic advantages.

Voided Concrete Slabs

In many cases, the limited depth required for the slab, means that more storeys become possible. Furthermore, thanks to the thinner walls and the fact that fobiax support columns are required, the usable space increases. All these advantages, added together, increase the profitability of the project considerably.

Therefore, Cobiax buildings regularly win international prizes for environment-conscious building. It is decisively easier to keep structural records of the slab building elements and the building as a whole. Thanks to the reduced weight of the slabs, distortion of the ceilings themselves is reduced, and the building retains its shape better. The limited thickness of the slabs is advantageous for the planning of the foundations and substructures: With Cobiax voided flat plate slabs, earthquake certification is easier; the reduced moving load is dynamically more tolerant than a conventionally designed building.

This saves a substantial intermediate step in the construction phase; furthermore, scheduling is more reliable. All of the Cobiax products are easy to lay; the Cobiax CLS technology considerably reduces the need for reinforcement. This not only facilitates the smooth running of the construction process. It also increases the level of acceptance of the building methods by neighbouring residents and institutions. The Cobiax history is one of safe, sustainable and profitable innovations in the building industry: A story that is having a considerable effect on the building methods of the 21 st Century.

At the beginning of every pioneering development, there are visionaries who turn theoretical possibilities into reliable technology. And strong people who are able to draw their will to succeed in the practical implementation of ideas, from the powers of possibility. Cobiax voided flat plate slab technologies are available worldwide.

With its “Made in Germany” design, and the numerous production and sales sites at various locations worldwide, the brand is setting a sign for its mission: Intelligent and sustainable building — anywhere in the world.
