BubbleDeck flooring set to revolutionize construction in Middle East

United Arab Emirates: Tuesday, September 12 - 2006 @ 15:10

BubbleDeck is a unique patented system which radically improves building design & performance while reducing the overall cost.

The System virtually eliminates dead weight concrete from the middle of a floor slab by incorporating recycled plastic bubbles as a void. The system can facilitate up to 50% longer spans between columns and the construction does not require beams, which allows architects greater design freedom. The slab is connected directly to in-situ concrete columns producing a wide range of cost and construction benefits.

BubbleDeck is particularly advantageous due to its load bearing behavior with equal efficiency in longitudinal as well as in transverse direction by the use of embedded spherical hollow bodies (bubbles).

BubbleDeck offers savings between 2 to 10 % from total construction project costs. It forms a fireproof construction which will withstand significant earth tremors and offers high sound and heat insulation. Replacing 100Kg of concrete by 1Kg of recycled plastic helps in reducing construction energy and carbon emissions.

An award winning innovative system, BubbleDeck is the only light flat slab system officially certified for use in the United Kingdom and is granted Dutch Technical Certification CUR 86, as recognized by the Building Regulations. Buildings around the world have used Bubbledeck technology including the Millennium Tower in Rotterdam, the Le Coie Housing in Great Britain, World Trade Center in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), St Georgian University in Frankfurt and many more.

“The level of construction growth in the Middle East is by far surpassing that of the rest of the world. Our innovative system will further support the growth by cutting construction costs as well as speeding up the building process all whilst respecting the environment. The savings we provide could be used to further improve the economy and the speed can buy more time to do so.”

said Fahad Fouad Bubshait, Audeo Maxima International Chairman and CEO.
