Hambro Transfer Slab

The Strength of Composite Action

The Hambro transfer slab is a floor system that transfers the loads from the structural building frame located above the slab to the columns, walls and foundations beneath it.

This system is economical and lighter than conventional reinforced concrete slabs.

The transfer slab is composed of Hambro joists (D500 or MD2000) and Hambro joist girders that work in composite action with the concrete slab. This system is supported by fire-resistant composite columns (steel/concrete).

Our transfer slab is both fast and easy to install.
