    TAB-Floor™

A state of the art solution for industrial flooring

Joints are the weakest point in every slab. In order to improve the technical properties of the floor, especially for heavy traffic and high static loads, ArcelorMittal has developed the jointless TAB-Floor™ concept.

TAB-Floor™ allows the casting of bays up to 2,500 m² without any saw-cut joints. Thus significant maintenance costs normally associated with joints is reduced or avoided. Through the use of suitable construction joints, the durable shear load transfer can be guaranteed in an optimal way, while free shrinkage remains possible in all directions. With the TAB-Floor™ concept you can have reduced slab thickness compared to that of traditional solutions with improved crack control and ductile behaviour. The joint edges are protected by a steel profile thus reducing the spalling effect under heavy traffic. The use of steel fibres improves the impact resistance of the floor as there is no unreinforced concrete cover. TAB-Floor™ jointless slabs should only be constructed by specialized industrial flooring contractors.
