Large Pour

Summary

Large Pour - is the fastest, least accurate method of placing a concrete floor.

Technical Information

Large Pour Construction

Large pours are usually levelled by a laser screed as it is the only sensible way to level such a large area accurately.
Up to 1500m2/day can be constructed using this method, making it the fastest method available.

Floors which have been constructed using the large pour method can be used in a wide variety of applications. However, if a high flatness tolerance is required, it will probably be necessary to grind the floor after it is completed.

Either jointed or jointless bays can be constructed using this method, with jointless bays typically being fibre reinforced. Formed joints exist between pours and these can be either armoured or unarmoured depending on the expected trafficking in the local. In a jointed bay, induced joints are also installed in the pour, set out in a regular grid of up to 6m.
