Hollow Core plank is a cost-effective and versatile flooring and roofing solution for almost any project.
Hollow Core is primarily used as precast concrete floors and roof decks. It is a precast plank with rows of hollow interior tubes for cost-efficiency. It is manufactured with pre-stressed steel reinforcements for added strength.
The hollow interior spaces make the slabs much lighter than floor slabs of the same thickness while maintaining equal strength. The hollow tubes also reduce material and transportation costs.
Molin Concrete Products offers two Hollow Core plank types: Flexicore and Extruded. Our precast plank product options give design flexibility and structural stability while reducing lead time. Contact us to discuss Hollow Core plank options in more detail.
