The V-Tec Beam consists of a steel lattice girder cast onto a concrete foot to form a lightweight, pre-cambered beam with large span characteristics.
The lightweight beams spaced at 750mm centres support the Expanded Polystyrene
(EPS) infill blocks which provide both an insulated base for the formwork and a smooth
surface for the ceiling below, suitable for a variety of finishes.
