Waffle board organizers point out that this type of board is less expensive, requires less construction, therefore has lower labor and negotiation costs, and has better insulating properties through the floor of the house. There is also less actual concrete.
And that's true, and especially for the new domestic market, where price matters, waffle irons are cheaper. When planning any building prior to construction, our products from Nicsons Building Products are used as an assessment of the technical requirements or must be carried out by a qualified civil engineer.
When assessing requirements for ceilings, engineers take into account the load the ceiling must bear in relation to the weight of the structure to be placed on the ceiling (dead load), as well as the potential additional live weight on the ceiling house (live load).
So what is the load in this engineering context? Load is the load or source of stress on the structure. These stresses, if left untreated, can cause stresses and deformations in the structure. Any expected load on the building must be carried with the same force that resists this load and thus maintains the sound of the building. Maintenance is also important.
In any technical assessment, the construction must conform to at least the minimum expected load on the panels. If the ceiling is built to the minimum requirements (and not better than the minimum requirements) it will result in cost savings.
