CEMEX floors has record production month

CEMEX Floors, a division of CEMEX UK the leading building materials provider, had record sales of flooring during August. Compared to the same period last year, sales of T-beam flooring have increased by 73% with sales outstripping production. The beams sold are equivalent in length to over 60 miles and will go round the average football pitch approximately 375 times.

CEMEX Floors is based at Wick, near Bristol in the South West and has developed a highly effective yet easy-to-install flooring system. The system is a suspended flooring system composed of pre-stressed concrete beams with standard concrete blocks providing the infill. There are two types of T shaped concrete beams, the 155mm depth used in residential developments and the 225mm for more demanding developments such as flats, residential homes and offices.

“2008 and early 2009 was a difficult period for everyone in the industry. Recently we have seen increasing interest and demand for our beams particularly from local housing agencies and residential homes who feel they benefit from our ISO accreditations of 14001, environmental management system, and 9001, quality management.” comments Graham Russell, Vice President for Commercial, Logistics and Building Products.

CEMEX Floors is the only company in this sector to offer a complete in-house advisory team including an in-house engineer, site surveys and a CAD (computer aided design). The company offers full layouts and calculations for building inspection submissions and advises customers on design and spacing beams based on the loadings of the internal walls.
