CombiSlab / Flooring

Bulk storage facility

Bulk storage facilities typically require heavy foundations to support the cantilevered walls, these are tied into?the floor slab. The restraint that this induces in the floor requires appropriate detailing of joints.

Using a Dramix® CombiSlab solution meant this restraint could be taken into account in the design of the floor and enabled the construction of a joint free slab.

This was beneficial to the building owner because it eliminated the ongoing maintenance costs and disruption associated with joints.

  • C40/50 concrete
  • Engineer: MSC Consultants
  • Contractor: Conslab
