Case Studies

3D Slab/s on Grade / Flooring

ALDI Facility QLD utilise Dramix

Aldi Distribution Facility at Brendale in Brisbane 2014 - 2015

54,000m2 of Jointless Internal Warehouse slabs, and 45,000m2 of External Pavement, all reinforced with Dramix steel fibre. The Internal slabs were designed to have no saw-cuts to minimise maintenance under hard wheeled forklifts, and to accommodate up to 12.7 Tonne post loads from the installed racking. The External pavements  loads of B-Double semi-trailers and associated handling equipment.

Technical solution:

  • Dramix 3D fibres were used in both applications to replace all of the conventional steel.
  • Internal and External Slabs

Benefits

The Dramix steel fibre only designs allowed for much faster construction of the slabs with no need for the placement of conventional steel, as well as providing a better solution to resist the heavy loads being applied.
