Case Studies

3D Slab/s on Grade / Flooring / Saw Cut Floors

Another Highway Truck Stop built with Dramix steel fibres

Caltex Truck Stop – Northbound on the Pacific Motorway at Chinderah in Northern NSW.

After many Truck Stop pavements throughout Australia being constructed with Dramix steel fibres, which handle the heavy loads and significant number of truck and car movements, Hutchinson Builders knew it was the right option for the new Caltex Truck Stop at Chinderah in Northern NSW. This solution allowed them to remove all traditional reinforcing mesh, reduce the pavement thickness, no requirement for a pump, saving them time and money.

Technical solution:

  • Dramix 3D only slab no mesh
  • Reduced slab thickness for same capacity
  • Speed of placement - no pump

Benefits

Dramix fibre only slabs meant that adjacent pours could be completed on consecutive days with no need for placing of any conventional steel mesh. The design allowed for a reduced slab thickness, which reduced labour and provided significant time and cost savings.
