Our beam and block flooring is very strong and stable. Each T beam is reinforced and specifically designed to meet the requirements of the span in question.
Suspended concrete floors are the preferred choice for sloping sites as they overcome the need to carry out major excavation.

Fire resistance is another important factor. Our block and beam floors have high fire safety ratings. The construction method also helps to ensure safety.
Block and beam flooring offers a good degree of flexibility when it comes to thermal performance. To achieve the best U value possible, we can provide EPS flooring panels, in place of infill blocks, alongside our cost-effective ‘light’ beams.
We have developed a range of products, meaning we can always offer a more suitable solution than an organisation that only provides a limited selection.
For example, we offer three types of beam: “light,” “standard” and “lightbeam+.” It may be that the most cost-effective way of satisfying load/span conditions would be to use a mixture of light and standard beam. If this is the case, our designers take this into account when proposing a plan for your project.
This flexibility means that we help you to avoid carrying out additional works (like concreting double beams) that may result from pushing one type of product to its limit.
We have designed our beams to be either 150mm or 225mm deep so that they make coursing with standard brick and block easy. A 175mm tall beam, for example, would make coursing with standard bricks and blocks difficult.
We always base our floor designs on what is best for the build overall, rather than what is best for our bottom line.
A company not doing this may request additional foundations to reduce the number of beams necessary, thus making the quote look cheaper and not truly dealing with the problem.
Floorspans believe that working with the architect/engineer is the best way of getting you value in the long run.
One way providers make their quotes seem cheaper is by not including essential materials in the quote.
Slip bricks is a great example of this. By keeping the number of slip bricks to a minimum or by not including them at all, the bottom line given on a quote seems cheaper. However, this can also result in inconvenience, cost or delay later.
Floorspan maintains an attitude of transparency in all aspects of our business. Our belief is that if we are clear about what you need to achieve a quality build, then you will have the tools you need to complete your project.
Block and beam flooring offers a good degree of flexibility when it comes to thermal performance. To achieve the best U-value possible, we can provide EPS flooring panels, in place of infill blocks, alongside our cost-effective ‘light’ beams.
A prominent example of this is our ‘light’ 150mm deep, narrow beam. These beams are conservative in cross-section whilst also having some capacity in hand. They are light and versatile and have superior loading capacities compared to competitor products. The beams also have tapers that allow for proper grouting, which means the floor can perform correctly.
There is a tendency to make products, such as light beam, just on the limit of European standards, making them appear cheap when additional works and loss in quality are not considered.
Everything produced by Floorspan is scrutinized so that we can guarantee quality and be proud of our output.
