Prespan creates a completely open space that eliminates the need for interior structural supports like columns or load-bearing walls. Builders can gain a clear span of the entire building in order to create a full basement or crawl space.
LANCASTER, Pa. (PRWEB) December 06, 2018
Northeast Precast, a New Jersey-based manufacturer of custom precast panels and systems, recently announced the launch of their newest product, Prespan.
Prespan is an exclusive, patented flooring system featuring insulated precast floor planks. The product is used in both residential and commercial projects.
Northeast Precast is a producer member of PCI Mid-Atlantic, a chapter of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI).
The main benefit of Prespan is that it allows for extra space to be constructed under the garage during a project’s building stage. According to Mark Gorgas, commercial division general manager for Northeast Precast, this extra space can be very valuable for anyone seeking additional storage in their home or commercial building.
“Being able to put a full basement under a garage is a big win for homeowners who dream of extra space. Planning ahead by using the space under the garage is the most affordable way to add more storage area to your home. If the cost-saving benefit of the added living space isn’t enough, the design flexibility will win customers over,” shared Gorgas.
Gorgas also added that Prespan creates a completely open space that eliminates the need for interior structural supports like columns or load-bearing walls. Builders can gain a clear span of the entire building in order to create a full basement or crawl space.
Compared to hollow core planks, Prespan delivers less deflection and is 25% lighter. The system is compatible with all concrete wall types and there are no manufacturing size limitations.
