A waffle slab is thicker than a flat slab because it includes a series of voids or “cells” that add reinforcement and stiffness to the slab. The cells are reinforced with steel rods, which provide additional support and help spread the load across a larger area. This extra reinforcement results in improved structural integrity and stability, making the waffle slab stronger and more resilient than a flat slab.
