The rib & block system consists of pre-stressed ribs, hollow core blocks, Y-10 rebar and Ref100Mesh. This system can be used for basement-, first floor and roof slabs. All re-inforcing steel & mesh requirements for your slab are supplied as per engineer’s bending schedule.

Advantages of the rib and block slab, compared to other slab systems:

  1. The structural integrity of the rib and block slabs is the primary benefactor for this system.
  2. Versatility for different architectural designs including cantilevers, makes the rib and block slabs the preferred choice!
  3. Improved sound and heat insulation further enhance this system.
  4. The electrical slab boxes, which are the same size as the concrete slab blocks, allow for down-lighters anywhere in the slab and the electrical conduits to be positioned correctly.
  5. Plastered smooth ceilings with no grooves give a quality finish to your slab.
  6. Easy installation guaranteed! No cranes or formwork needed.
  7. Reduced cost for labour, installation, steel and propping.
  8. Levelling of slab is done while packing the slab, as the weight of the concrete pre-stressed ribs and blocks press down on the props.
