Bubble Deck is a biaxial technology that increases span lengths and makes floors thinner by reducing the weight while maintaining the performance of reinforced concrete slabs.
The concept is based on the fact that the area between columns of a solid slab has limited structural effect beyond adding weight. Replacing this area with a grid of “voids” sandwiched between layers of reinforcing welded wire steel and an internal lattice girder yields a slab typically 35% lighter that performs like solid reinforced concrete.
Once concrete is poured over the balls in the panels, the Bubble Deck system effectively becomes, and behaves like, a monolithic two-way slab that distributes force uniformly and continuously.
