Floor sockets in a concrete floor

Recommended Posts

We're planning a power floated concrete floor as the finished surface, and would like floor sockets. Has anyone used these in a concrete floor? Our architect is worried about cracking around the socket, but I'm sure this must be possible to do without. Any hints/tips?

Thanks all

I'd ask the companies that do the polishing if they've seen problems. I'm sure its the sort of things they do for hotels and conference centres.  Perhaps they recommend round holes rather than square ones (as per the Comet)?

 

Beware at doorways. Our screed cracked where the screed in two rooms met at a doorway. We should have put in an expansion gap to form a straight "crack".

Seems like the best option, cheers Temp.

Anyone out there used floor sockets in their own build and wants to share some pics?
