AvantCrete™ Wide Slab Floor Systems

AvantCrete™ is a slab design that offers flat, smooth, and virtually curl-free floors with fewer joints by using a time-tested technology that has proven to be superior to the commonly used slab designs. We refer to this technology as wide slab construction.


What is “Wide Slab Floor Construction”?

AvantCrete™ uses single course installation giving the slab continuity from “top to bottom”. Our floors provide a beautiful, durable finish that meets or exceeds design requirements, and owner’s expectations.

The term “wide slab floor construction” is used to describe the two different types of steel fiber reinforced slabs:

    1. Extended Joint Slabs – typically control joint spacing is placed in line with column spacing
    2. Joint Free Slabs – no control joints, only construction joints
