Case Studies

CombiSlab / Flooring

Processing plant slab

Detailing this slab to avoid cracking under service stress would have been impossible. The conventionally reinforced option would have required heavy top and bottom steel to control cracks to an acceptable level. The Dramix® CombiSlab solution enabled construction using one layer of mesh plus Dramix®. A cost effective solution that was easy and quick to build.

Technical solution:

  • Fibre Type - DRAMIX®
  • Additional Reinforcement - top layer of mesh
  • Constructed completely joint free
  • C30/37 concrete
  • Engineer: Stiles and Hooker
  • Contractor: Eberts

Benefits

  • Restrained slab constructed joint free
  • Reduced long term maintenance
  • Improved durability and elimination of joint damage
