Strengthening the market uptake of the Super-Light Deck for concrete constructions (SSLC)
Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Jun 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The goal of the project is to ensure a critical number of reference cases and market-uptake of a new precast concrete product, called the SL-Deck, thereby overcoming market barriers that has been hampering the market uptake of this innovative product. The SL-Deck is based on a patented new technology, Super-Light Structures (SLS), which originally was developed at the Technical University of Denmark in 2009. Subsequently the Danish company Abeo was founded to commercialize the technology and based on the SLS technology Abeo has developed the first commercial product, the SL-Deck, which combines the strength of reinforced concrete with the low weight of lightweight concrete resulting in a strong lightweight construction that will handle heavy loads and long spans.The SL-Deck can be used as separation of levels in concrete constructions and compared to traditional solutions such as hollow-core slabs and filigran decks the SL-Deck has a number benefits where foremost is lower mass leading to a reduction of 36% in CO2 emissions as well as having a high level of natural soundproofing (55 dB) and four hours of fire-resistance and up to 75% longer spans.
