Ultrafloor Band Beam System

 

130R System (130R/400, 130R/500)

This system has primarily been developed for use where a minimum floor zone thickness is required, usually in residential applications. The finished floor thickness is nominally 180mm. Beams are spaced at 480mm for the 130R/400 system and at 580mm for the 130R/500 system.

This system has been tested by CSIRO in accordance with AS 1530.4-1997 and can be used (without a ceiling) in typical applications that require a fire resistance level (FRL) of 120/120/120.

130C System (130C/400, 130C/500)

This system has primarily been developed for use where a minimum floor zone thickness is required. The finished floor thickness is nominally 180mm. Beams are spaced at 540mm for the 130C/400 system and at 640mm for the 130C/500 system.

CSIRO has issued an opinion that it can be used (without a ceiling) in typical applications that require a fire resistance level (FRL) of 120/120/120.

150R System (150R/400, 150R/500)

 

This system is ideal for typical applications, such as unit construction, schools, retirement villages, etc and produces a 200mm thick floor. Beams are spaced at 480mm for the 150R/400 system and at 580mm for the 150R/500 system.

This system has been tested by CSIRO in accordance with AS 1530.4-1997 and can be used (without a ceiling) in typical applications that require a fire resistance level (FRL) of 120/120/120.

150C System (150C/400, 150C/500)

 

This beam is designed for longer spans. It is ideal to combine with the 150R Ultrafloor system as it is the same depth and produces a 200mm thick floor. Beams are spaced at 600mm for the 150C/400 system and at 700mm for the 150C/500 system.Tested by CSIRO in accordance with AS 1530.4-1997, this system (without a ceiling) attained a fire resistance level (FRL) of 240/240/150. The FRL can be enhanced to 240/240/180 with a 113mm topping, or to 240/240/240 with a 138mm thick topping.

200C System (200C/400, 200C/500)

 

This beam is designed for heavy superimposed loads and long spans and produces a 250mm thick floor. Beams are spaced at 600mm for the 200C/400 system and at 700mm for the 200C/500 system.

Tested by CSIRO in accordance with AS 1530.4-1997, this system (without a ceiling) attained a fire resistance level (FRL) of 240/240/150. The FRL can be enhanced to 240/240/180 with a 113mm topping, or to 240/240/240 with a 138mm thick topping.

250C System (250C/400, 250C/500)

 

This beam is designed for heavy superimposed loads and long spans, producing a 300mm thick floor. Beams are spaced at 600mm for the 250C/400 system and at 700mm for the 250C/500 system.

Tested by CSIRO in accordance with AS 1530.4-1997, this system (without a ceiling) attained a fire resistance level (FRL) of 240/240/150. The FRL can be enhanced to 240/240/180 with a 113mm topping, or to 240/240/240 with a 138mm thick topping.

Ultrashell System

 

In the place of conventionally formed band beams, which require formwork and propping, the band beams can be formed using the innovative Ultrashell system that has been developed by Ultrafloor. The system is shown below, and is created using the shell profiles shown in Section 4.1.5 along with the design principles given in Section 7.4. It can be post-tensioned to increase load capacity and spanning capability.
