LEWIS IFD and light steel frame floor systems
In addition to renovations and alterations, LEWIS Dovetailed sheeting is often applied in new building projects as
well. Particularly in IFD floor systems (Industrial, Flexible & Demountable) and light steel frame floor systems.
Light steel frame floor systems
Light steel frame building can be seen as a contemporary variant to timber frame construction and prefab concrete.
Steel frame floor systems consist of frames of cold-shaped C- U-profiles made of thin steel sheet. The frames are
strong and lightweight.
LEWIS Dovetailed sheeting is fixed onto the frames, and finished with a fine gravel concrete or liquid screed floor.
This way, a high-quality constructional floor is made.
Besides as a floor system in steel framed houses and commercial buildings the LEWIS light steel frame floor systems
are for example also used as a light weight solution for topping up existing houses/apartment buildings.
Slimline floor system
The Slimline floor system has been developed by Prefab Limburg B.V. The prefab system consists of a concrete slab
with upwards-projecting steel girders.
The IPE girders, which have been provided with notches, have been casted into the concrete slab. The concrete slab
forms the ceiling of the underlying room. Conduits for sewage, water, heating/cooling, gas, electricity, ICT, air
treatment, etc. are inserted into the ceiling cavity of the Slimline floor system.
Using LEWIS Dovetailed sheeting, the (floating) top floor is made on top of the Slimline.
