The Beam & Block system is an alternative method to hollowcore and wide slab floor systems. This method consists of having T beams spanning across the floor area, wall to wall.

The system involves using pre-stressed, inverted "T" beams which are in filled with standard concrete blocks. Beams are produced to give nominal depths from 150mm to 225mm and are placed at 520mm and/or 295mm centres depending on the span and load.

Joints between the beams and blocks are to be grouted after installation and before screeds are placed. Insulation can be laid directly on top of construction. Screed is then poured to give a smooth finish to receive floor covering.
