RE: Concrete slab recommendations for gymnasium wood floor

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

We used a 5” slab over a standard 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier over a 6” sand capillary water barrier (it was near the coast in n.c.). The architect called for a 2 7/8” recess in the slab to accommodate a wood athletic flooring system (like hammerhead athletic flooring).

Subject: Concrete slab recommendations for gymnasium wood floor


We age doing a building that has a gymnasium which will have a wood floor system.  I am looking for any particular recommendations or "watchoutfor's".  Some of my concerns are:

1. Vapor Retarder type/location;

2. Flatness/Levelness ;

3. Curing;
