Slab in a Box

Slab in a Box contains everything you need to quickly and easily create a concrete slab in your own backyard. It can be used for everything from BBQ pads to footpaths and park benches for a versatile solution. Contents of the kit include plastic side forms, corner pieces, plastic clips, reinforcing mesh and a sheet of builder’s film.  Once constructed, all that’s needed is to pour concrete into the panel (18 bags of concrete mix required). Slab in a Box has been designed to be as simple as possible to assemble, with no need for skilled labourers.

It can be used for everything from BBQ pads to footpaths and park benches for a versatile solution. The slab in a box is ideal for

  • Wheelie Bin Pad
  • Garden Shed
  • Basketball Pad
  • External Water heater/ Heating Appliance Pad

 

ASSEMBLY

The ‘Slab-in-a-Box®’ general purpose panel makes a slab that is 1700×900 mm, and contains five different components:

• 4 x lengths of plastic side forms

• 4 x plastic corner pieces

• 24 x plastic clips which interlock the side form and reinforcement bar

• 1 x piece of reinforcing mesh

• 1 x sheet of builder’s film

The clips are slipped onto the end of every exposed reinforcing bar. Line up the clips on a slight angle to the side form, and simply twist to lock the clips onto the side form and mesh simultaneously, around the panel perimeter.

 

INSTALLATION

Once the Slab-in-a-Box assembly is finished, just place the panel into the prepared hole where desired. Concrete is then poured into the panel and screeded off, creating a level concrete slab. After the concrete has sufficiently set, brush with a stiff broom for a textured finish.


This panel needs ~18 bags of concrete mix.

 

ADVANTAGES

• VERSATILE DESIGN

used for multiple applications including BBQ pads, footpaths, park benches, air conditioning units, etc.

• SIMPLE ASSEMBLY

no need for skilled labourers, all parts are included (except concrete), less project complexity, reduced install time.

• CONSISTENT RESULTS

the mesh is held at a constant height and distance from the edge, making the slab more reliable, and less susceptible to long-term degradation.

  • NO PEGGING REQUIRED

The Slab-in-a-Box can be used to form up slabs on the hardest of surfaces. Multiple panels can be connected with dowels to form larger slabs, and anchor points can be inserted to hold down sheds or pumps. The formwork can also be painted to match the surrounding colour scheme.
