What is Hollow Core?

Hollow core is a concrete slab used for roof and floor systems. The slabs have a continuous series of circular voids that run the length of the slab, reducing weight and dramatically reducing costs. The voids also create a conduit to run utilities through as per engineer specifications. Despite the voids, hollow core is a tremendously strong product that can carry and bolster great loads.

At Silverstone Precast, our hollow core slabs are forged in slbas of almost any length, allowing for infinite interior design possibilities with large clear spans. Like other precast products, hollow core is made from concrete, a natural material that is fire and weather resistant. Forged in our state-of-the-art facility with a repeatable process that ensures quality, hollow core arrives at a build site ready to be erected. This allows for quick assembly and reduced site waste. Hollow core reduces auditory vibrations making for a peaceful environment. Compatible with a large variety of materials including wood, masonry and steel, hollow core is a great material for almost any industry as well as residential structures.

Why Hollow Core?

Hollowcore gives you an edge. Its versatility is the centerpiece of world-class construction. Hollowcore can be sized and shaped to meet virtually any need, offering true design flexibility. It has the added advantage of strength and durability - resistant to weather and fire. Plus, it’s cost-efficient, saving you money from construction through the life of your structure.
