  1. What is BubbleDeck?

    BubbleDeck System is a revolutionary construction method by eliminating concrete from the neutral axis of a floor slab that is structurally not performing, as a result dramatically reducing in Dead Weight. The BubbleDeck System is based upon patented integration technique - the direct way of linking air and steel. Void formers inside the flat slab eliminates at least 30% of a slab's dead weight.
    Incorporation of recycled plastic bubbles as void formers allows wider space between columns. Combination of this with a flat slab construction approach spanning in two directions - the slab is connected directly to insitu concrete columns without any beams - produces a wide range of cost and construction benefits.

  2. How does BubbleDeck work?

    The BubbleDeck system is based upon the patented integration technique - the direct way of linking air and steel.
    By adapting the geometry of the ball and the mesh, an optimised concrete construction is obtained, with simultaneous maximum utility of both moment and shear zones.
    The construction literally creates itself as a result of the geometry of two well-known components: Reinforcement and hollow plastic balls. When the top and bottom reinforcement are linked in the usual way, a geometrical and statical stable BubbleDeck unit evolves.
    The reinforcement catches, distributes and locks the balls in exact position, while the balls shape the air volume, control the level of the reinforcement, and at the same time stabilise the spatial lattice. When the steel lattice unit is concrete, a "monolithic" biaxial hollow slab is obtained. For more information, please logon to www.bubbledeck.com.my.
