Discover Tindall’s Latest Innovation:

Precast concrete floor systems have been waiting for a revolution. With the new Tindall Superior Lightweight All-Purpose Beam (T-SLAB®), that revolution has finally arrived. Come explore the benefits of this cutting-edge floor system and discover how T-SLAB could reshape your future projects.

What is T-SLAB®?

T-SLAB® is an all-new, patented precast concrete slab system that leverages the time-tested principles of Roman arch design and multiple concrete types to deliver a stronger, lighter, and more versatile slab. This groundbreaking product was designed to deliver all the advantages of concrete and the industry’s most effective building materials in a single, cost-effective, and 100% precast solution.

T-SLAB offers a wide range of benefits to builders and architects alike, including the flexibility of cast-in-place concrete and improved structural performance compared to hollowcore. Unlike its competition, however, T-SLAB delivers all its benefits with the strength, speed, and performance of precast concrete.

How Does T-SLAB® Work?

The T-SLAB is one of the latest examples of Roman building principles at work in the modern age. To produce a T-SLAB, Tindall first creates a series of lightweight concrete blocks, which allow prestressed reinforcement to be placed lengthwise and traditional reinforcement to be placed in the transverse direction. These blocks are then encased by self-compacting concrete, creating strong arches in a series of reinforced ribs. Where needed, the lightweight concrete blocks can be omitted, providing the flexibility to include ducts, built-in installations, and zones of solid concrete with added reinforcement.


When it comes to precast floor systems, T-SLAB is the ideal solution for a wide range of applications. Plus, T-SLAB empowers Tindall to easily convert existing designs to total precast. That means customers gain access to endless aesthetic options, a variety of precast finishes, unique architectural designs, and customization opportunities.
