Premier Guarantee and LABC (Local Authority Building Control) have both approved the Jablite Garage Floor System.
These approvals follow on from the BBA (British Board of Agrément) accreditation. With acceptance already from the NHBC, the Garage Floor System has approval from all the leading residential new-build warranty providers.
These structural warranties recognise that Jablite’s Garage Floor System meets the robust standards set within the construction industry for products of this type.
“The final approvals came through without a hitch,” says Steve Broadhurst, Director of Technical Solutions at Expanding Solutions.
Expanding Solutions is the independent building consultancy that developed the Garage Floor System for Jablite and took it through the entire process from conception, prototyping, testing, BBA accreditation and warranty approvals.
“I am proud to say that the System’s smooth journey is a result of the outstanding design work by Stefania Cappiello, who was also our project manager responsible for the Garage Floor System.
“We have one last hurdle and that is the patent. The Garage Floor System has patent pending status at the moment and I am confident that the experts in the Expanding Solutions team will be able to guide the System to full patent-protected status.”
The Jablite Garage Floor System is an engineered alternative to a traditional block and beam floor. It provides a fast and easy installation and a reduction in H&S hazards due to the lightweight panels that replace the concrete blocks – at a ratio of one panel for every 5 blocks.
Combined with Jablite’s All-in-One NST (non-structural system) thermal floor product, both the house and garage floor can be installed with a minimum change of process.
