The new 27,000sqm Northline facility in Regency Park, South Australia utilised the tried and tested Dramix fibre only jointless solution for the internal slabs. With the external slabs adopting a Dramix Combi Slab, enabling the removal of all saw cuts and all dowelled joints from the pavement. Having no joints makes for the most efficient design with the additional benefit of long term reduced maintenance cost with the removal of costly jointing systems.

The new Distribution Facility for Schweppes Asahi in Brisbane includes a fully automated racking system 32 metres high, with post loads of 23 Tonnes each.
The Only suitable solution was to remove all joints and saw-cuts and design it as a fully restrained completely seamless Dramix Combi Slab

On the back of a number of successful external container pavements and due to the busy nature of the facility and the fact that joints require maintenance. The Combi Slab solution was chosen because it removed all joints including saw cuts and dowelled joints, leaving a surface that requires little or no maintenance at all.
