Load tables:

Load tables are designed in accordance with British Standard BS 8110. For simple supported slabs, value for load capacity and deflections are given in load tables for the various thicknesses.
To acquire the load tables please contact our local Sales or Design department.

The chosen slab and its strand pattern is verified by the designers using a special software PSCal. This software is specially developed internally by BPC Group to ensure the chosen slabs meet the customer and standard requirements.
