Re: Floor finish requirements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
My error on this topic - I tought the thread related to type of slab (i.e., Type- B, Type-C...) as well as trowelling finishes and so forth. I see now that this thread was more specific to tolerances.
My appologies.

ACI 301-99, which is now simply "Specifications for Structural Concrete", definitely covers floor finishes.  Section 5.3.3 is very extensive however it does reference ACI 117 for the actual tolerance's.

I am not sure this is the best resource for floor finishes; 301 is entitled "Specifications for Structural Concrete for Buildings".

You will need to consult ACI 302.1R; Guide for Concrete Floor and Slab
Construction and/or
ACI 360R; Design of Slabs on Grade.
