RE: hollow core slabs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There are no holes provided unless you spec it. Normally, I require the precaster to drill them in, since we have experienced snow getting packed in the cores in the winter and then when the building is enclosed it slowly leaks out ruining the ceiling tile.

Are there any requirements for providing void drains in these?
