Pre Stressed Hollowcore Slab


In response to market demand for high quality factory produced flooring, ARMCON established its pre-stressed Hollowcore production unit in 1994. Since then, the Hollowcore Division has followed the same basic aims of providing the construction industry with high quality products, along with high standards of customer service. Asdem and for our pre-stressed products has grown, so has the capacity of our production unit, which was expanded during 2005 and which today offers a production capacity of nominally 35,000m2 per month.

Our Pre-stressed operations provide our customers with a complete service, ranging from slab design for required spans and loading conditions, through manufacture to final erection of the units at site. All structural design work is overseen by our Bahrain Registered Structural Engineer, observing the requirements outlined in the internationally accepted British Standard Codes of Practice

To back ARMCON’s confidence in its pre-stressed flooring products, all slab types are provided with a ten year service warranty.

ARMCON’s Pre-stressed Hollowcore Factoryis sited within our main Ma’ameer complex. The factory is a self contained unit designed and purchased from a major European Plant Manufacturer (Elematic) which specializes in equipment for the production of Pre-stressed Hollowcore slabs.

The unit operates on a 24 hour production cycle to manufacture slabs of 150mm, 200mm, 240mm, and 265mm section asrequired to meet the needs of our customers. Design work to meet client needs is carried out by our in-house structural design team, who provide accredited slab design to meet the required conditions, along with slab layout drawings for the areas to be erected.

All such design and layout work is confirmed by ARMCON’s site measurement teams before production of the slabs.
