Floor Joist System TECslab from TECBUILD

tecbeam construction

A smarter and more cost effective alternative to concrete floors.

TECslab™ combines TECBEAM® I-beam joists with Hebel® PowerFloor™ to provide a lightweight flooring system at around half the cost of suspended, reinforced concrete utilising removable formwork

  • Exceptional acoustic, vibration and thermal insulation comfort levels
  • Up to 240 minutes fire resistance from above and 90 minutes from below
  • Easy to work with standard tools, no wet trades

TECslab™ - Two great construction systems working together

TECBEAM® engineered I-beams deliver benefits not available with suspended concrete.

  • Greater spans in a lightweight beam system with reduced sub-structure
  • Plumbing, ductwork and other services can be run through the TECBEAM® web holes, without a suspended ceiling. Reducing floor cavity height
  • Fire-rated plasterboard fixed to the underside of TECBEAM® joists achieves required project FRL for fires from below
  • In long spans floor vibration is easily controlled by using strongbacks
  • The continuous steel web in TECBEAM® joists produces 60% lower floor creep than other timber joists, saving in post construction maintenance such as sticking doors

The Hebel® PowerFloor™ system consists of 75mm steel-reinforced Hebel® panels glued and screwed to the frame to provide a solid floor at a quarter of the weight of standard concrete.

  • PowerFloor™ provides a solid feel floor without the bounce, flex and squeak of timber sheet flooring
  • Excellent thermal and airborne noise insulation properties
  • PowerFloor™ provides a 240 minutes fire rating for fires from above and up to 90 minutes from below
  • Eliminates sticking doors and post construction maintenance
