Case Studies

3D Slab/s on Grade / Flooring

Tobacco Facility-Batangas, Philippines, for Japan Tobacco International (JTI)

Slab on Grade Floor by Sta Clara International

This 48,000m2 floor area facility will be used to store tobacco leafs, process and final packaging.

Initial design was using 40kg/m3 loose low performing type fibre. With the combined effort with our partner Infratex Environmental Services Philippines Inc – Bekaert®’s proposal was to use a high performance fibre floor solution at a lower dose rate. By using Dramix 3D 80/60BG, the dose rate can be reduced offering significant saving to the main contractor.

Technical solution:

  • Dramix Fiber Only Jointless slab - 18m x18m Slab Panels
  • Slab 250mm thick
  • Dramix 3D Fibres
  • 30Mpa Concrete
  • Eliminates Saw Cut

Benefits

  • Jointless floor – removing the saw cut joints from the slab significantly reduces the risk of bug infestation into the stored tobacco leaves.
  • Reduced long term maintenance / Faster construction
  • Bekaert cost saving solution with high performance Dramix 3D fibre
