System VB

Timber-concrete composite fasteners in renovation and new-build timber floors

Timber-concrete composite is a field-proven construction system in which a thin concrete slab is rigidly attached to a timber purlin. The VB system avoids the need to tear down existing timber ceilings or construct new concrete structures. As well, the VB system can be used in new-builds. The aesthetic appeal of a timber ceiling is married to the structural physical advantage of concrete.
