Finishing Touches

The SAY-CORE slab's underside is steel form smooth and can be left either as is or painted. SAY-CORE may be used with or without topping. Joints between slabs are grouted. On untopped SAY-CORE plank, it is recommended that a minimum of 1/2″ leveler be applied to the top before applying padding, carpet, tile, wood flooring, or seamless floor coverings.

The SAY-CORE Plank Advantage- Fire Ratings

Our 8″, 10″, and 12″ untopped slabs have a two-hour fire-resistance classification for both restrained and unrestrained conditions. The 6″ plank has a one-hour fire rating.

Acoustical Installation

SAY-CORE slabs produce better sound insulation than solid concrete floors of the equivalent thickness. Untopped 8″, SAY-CORE has ratings of STC48 and NRC55.

Simplifying Construction

The slabs can be fabricated even before on-site construction has begun and can be ready for installation as soon as the foundation and framing are prepared. In addition, the slabs can be installed regardless of weather conditions.

The installed floor requires no curing or temporary decking, so a safe, smooth working deck is immediately available to allow other trades to continue without delay. Improved site management is a side benefit, especially when space is limited. In most cases, slabs can be delivered as required and erected directly from the truck.
