This talk introduces topics of best practices to build superflat concrete floors with recommended specifications to meet floor tolerance to facilitate smooth and efficient performance of lift-trucks/forklift. Discussion on how to comply with the varies international standards (ASTM, BS, DIN) available when constructing whether a moderate floor, flat floor or a superflat floor.
Learn how not to under-specify or over-specify concrete floors. Case studies and what are the floor measuring instruments available, e.g. Dipstick and F-metertalk is focused on current industry best practice and actual projects.
