Oran Pre-Cast provides hollowcore in a range of thickness, from 150mm to 500mm. As the name implies hollowcore, has a series of hollow cores within the cross section that results in a lightweight product. This, along with the prestressed tensile reinforcement, allows for long clear spans to be achieved.
The hollowcore products are slip formed on 1.2m wide production beds. The side of the hollowcore units have a profiled edge. This creates a shear key between individual slabs that allows for distribution of load between slabs when filled on site. This feature can be seen in the product gallery below.
A typical span / load table for the various units is included in the downloads section - Hollowcore Load Span Table
The company carries out a full project specific design on all orders received. This includes checks on all openings, point and line loads.
