WAVE! floor system

478

Description

Composite decking with a negative embodied carbon, and optimum structural, thermal and acoustic performance. It is made of a curved Kerto-Q panel strengthened with Kerto-S rib beams and a rammed earth topping. It allows long spans making it suitable for office and commercial buildings, and does not require temporary propping. Its light roof version allows up to 20m spans and can be easily single-curved across waves. The wavy shape of the ceiling and the acoustic chambers provided to absorb the sound waves enhance the acoustic performance of the system.
