# Concrete Slabs - Load Capacities

Load capacities of simply supported concrete slabs:

Thickness
(mm)
Self Weight
(kg/m2)
(kg/m2)
(m)
kg/m2kN/m2
100 240 500 740 7.26 2.4
125 300 500 800 7.85 3.0
150 360 500 860 8.44 3.6

Imposed loads varies from approximately 1.5 kN/m2 (153 kg/m2) in domestic buildings to approximately 10 kN/m2 (1053 kg/m2) in heavy industrial areas. 500 kg/m2 is typical for office, storage space and similar.
