Fire resistance, seismic resilience, and structural optimization of walls and columns are the general concerns when building decks for hospitals.
Lightweight bidirectional slabs created with our New Nautilus offer solutions to all these issues. The reduction of the slab’s weight creates less seismic stress on the structure during earthquakes providing safety for patients and more secure operation rooms.
Another important issue is the level of fire resistance. Hospitals are required to strictly follow REI regulations. Bidirectional plate slabs produced by New Nautilus reduces the need for extra support columns or walls, thus creating a more spacious interior and viable evacuation routes in case of an emergency.
