Modular formwork for concrete raised floors with MEP systems

Geoplast Matrix formwork for concrete floating floors

Matrix is a recycled polypropylene formwork for reinforced concrete raised floors that facilitate the passage of MEP systems.
 
Unlike the raised floors with a metal substructure, Matrix guarantees a high load-bearing capacity of up to 15 t/m2. This makes it suitable for a wide range of buildings, especially those with heavy load requirements.
 
Matrix allows a quick and intuitive setup. The base modules create an orthogonal grid that props the positioning of MEP with great precision and flexibility. Concrete is then poured over the top formwork, creating a monolithic walkable base.
 
Matrix provides maximum clearance for MEP systems. With only 15 cm of total height, Matrix allows a 10-12 cm net height and 30-40 cm width for the passage of installations.
 
MEP system maintenance is provided by inspection shafts for technical compartment access that can be placed according to project demands.
 
Matrix creates a concrete structure that isolates MEP from flooring, allowing safe evacuation in case of fire. Matrix also improves floor acoustics and is suitable for any type of top-finishing (laminate, marble, wood, linoleum, etc).

Installation Instructions

1 Matrix base installation

1. BASE GRID INSTALLATION

Matrix four-arm base grid modules are laid on the slab and coupled by pressure hooking. This creates a mapping for the passage of MEP systems.

2 Laying of MEP

2. LAYING THE MEP SYSTEMS

MEP systems are laid according to project specifications.

3 Installing the formwork

3. INSTALLING THE FORMWORK

Matrix top formwork modules are laid according to the assembly diagram.

4 Steel reinforcement and pouring of concrete

4. CASTING OF CONCRETE

After the steel mesh is laid, concrete is poured over the formwork, creating a uniform, high load-bearing floor base.

FAQ

Does Matrix allow MEP system maintenance?

Maintenance is facilitated by steel inspection shafts for technical compartment access that can be installed according to project demands.

What are the advantages of Matrix compared to the traditional raised floors?

Easy laying: the system is composed of 2 recycled plastic elements: the base grid and the top formwork.

Quick installation: the laying of the grids and the insertion of formwork are easy, intuitive, and can be installed in a very short time.
