THOUGHTS

FOR THE ARCHITECTS

The BubbleDeck® technology gives an exceptional degree of freedom in architectural design - choice of shape, large cantilevers, larger spans or deck areas with fewer supporting points - no beams, fewer columns and carrying walls results in flexible and easy changeable buildings. Interior design can easily be altered throughout the buildings lifetime.

FREE CHOICE OF SHAPE

The BubbleDeck® system allows for complete architectural freedom

The slab can follow any shape. Combined with large spans and cantilevers, this optimizes architects design freedom, pushing boundaries even further. The flexibility also enhances future changes. Due to the slabs biaxial behaviour, it allows for changes such as adding additional openings and staircases. The flexibility also enhances future alteration of use.

BIAXIAL & SLIM

The BubbleDeck® system is a light, biaxial, flat slab technology

LIGHT: The hollow spheres incorporated in the slab reduce the deadweight by up to 35% compared to a solid slab with the same bearing capacity. This weight reduction allows for further reductions in the building structure, through the reduction in the no of columns and bearing walls. The reduction in deadweight results in savings in the foundation. 

NO BEAMS: Due to its biaxiality, no down stand beams are needed. The result is a completely flat soffit. A slim structure is obtained, resulting in an overall reduced building height. 

OPEN & LIGHT: The flat soffit with no obstructing beams, combined with a reduced number of columns and or bearing walls, creates an open and flexible space, with maximum usability.

LARGE SPAN

Due to its lightness and biaxiality, BubbleDeck® can achieve extraordinary spans - not only in one, but in all directions, without beams. As a rule, a BubbleDeck® slab can span 20 to 40 times the deck thickness. With the integration of PT cables, which fit easily in the slab, spans of 50 times the deck thickness is possible.

LONG CANTILEVERS

With the BubbleDeck® system, the completely open facade is possible with long cantilevers. Length of cantilevers of approximately 10 times the deck thickness gives the architect a tool for optimizing both light and interior design.

OPEN & FLEXIBLE

The BubbleDeck® technology gives unsurpassed possibilities concerning interior design

The flat soffit with no obstructing beams, combined with a reduced number of columns and/or bearing walls, creates an open and flexible space, with maximum usability. The ability to make long cantilevers opens for full freedom in optimised use of valuable light and expensive views. Even small scale buildings like private homes can benefit from flat soffits.
