READY Super Slab

READY Super Slab is an above the ground engineered flooring solution, which offers the following benefits over traditional flooring construction:

Speed of installation offers labour saving and reduced build time
Minimal excavation
Suitable for poor sites with low soil bearing capabilities
Improved thermal performance (R value)
Easy installation of services

Why READY Super Slab?

READY Super Slab fully complies with the Department of Building and Housing report published in December 2010 in relation to the reconstruction offer for the Canterbury Earthquake. While also saving time and money and increasing energy efficiency and strength.

When do you use or not use a pod floor, i.e. can the ground be to soft?

An allowable bearing pressure of 50 kPa can be accommodated normally, which is 50% of the standard 100kPa 'good ground' stated in NZS3604: Pod floors fully suspended on piles over very poor ground, deep topsoil or peat can be very economical as the beams formed by the pods are able to span between piles with minimal extra reinforcement.

Is there a max weight that a pod floor can hold, e.g. can it be used for a floor where heavy vehicles are going to be parked etc?

The typical system is designed for 2.5kPa which is the garage floor loading of a house. Specifically designed slabs can be designed for up to 10kPa however reinforcement and topping thickness will vary for these designs.

Can I use READY Super Slab on a sloped section? Is there any advantage in me doing this?

You can use READY Super Slab on a sloped section, small steps can sometimes be poured in one pour. For large steps the retaining wall footing is formed within the thickness of the floor of the lower portion, which minimises excavation.

Does the council support pod floors in terms of getting consent? Will I need extra paperwork to get my consent?

All councils are aware of pod floors today. The Producer Statement PS1, calculations, drawings and details are all supplied by the slab designer and can be submitted at the time of the original building consent or as an amendment (if changing over from a conventional slab which already has consent).

Does it use more concrete than a standard floor slab?

The interior of the slab including the ribs equates to 125mm of flat concrete but this is offset by the savings from:
a. Hard fill to create the slab height
b. The block perimeter
c. Excavation and disposal costs for footings around the perimeter.

Will my R value increase by using READY Super Slab?

The R value is a function of the slab geometry. READY Super Slab floors provide improved R value and thermal mass both of which contribute to a warmer floor.
