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