Finishing Lightweight Concrete Floors

Designers specify lightweight concrete floors because
they are cost effective and environmentally efficient.
Lightweight concrete has compressive strength comparable to normalweight concrete, but it is typically 25% to 35% lighter. Lightweight concrete floors offer
design flexibility and substantial cost savings by providing less dead load, improved seismic structural response, longer spans, better fire ratings, thinner sections, smaller size structural members, less reinforcing steel, and lower foundation costs.
