WWWHP (World Wide Warehouse Hai Phong) continued building the next phrase of their renting warehouse. The project is a suspended slab with 5400m2 floor area. The client wanted to have a flat floor according to Fm2 – TR34, the floor has been cast using a strip method, utilising a Dramix®  4D Combi slab solution enabling tight crack control and removing expansion joints.

This project is for the external pavement for the new Dinding facility in Lumut. The pavement is reinforced with Dramix®  3D fibre for heavy traffic load. The slab has a broomed finish to add friction on the road for traffic. This project is still ongoing, Main contractor by ETEC (Korea) consultant by Royal Haskoning and external slab executed by Sathia Construction.

A 17.000m2 warehouse owned by LBL Prime Properties Inc in Manila. This project is awarded to our accredited flooring contractor, Nippontech, who did a good job in casting the slab on grade solution for the owner. Dramix 3D 80/60BG was used in this project with guidance from Nippontech to ensure that the subbase and the gravel bed was prepared well before the execution of the floor. Subbase preparation is key to the success of any slab on grade project and ensure longevity and performance from the product. Well done to Nippontech.

Sentul City, one of the largest residential developer in Indonesia starts to use Dramix® steel fibre to reinforce their road pavement. The job was done by contractor PT Infratek, an infrastructure specialist with Dramix® experience having completed, Griya Idola Industrial Park project previously. This project adds to the growing list of Dramix® projects in Indonesia.

The project was designed under ‘crack width’ consideration. With benefit of steel fibre, we could utilize the performance of steel fibre together with conventional reinforcement to act as moment resistance and crack control at the same time. The design provided a cost effective solution which met both ultimate and serviceability requirements.

High performance steel fibre Dramix®  4D plus mesh was used to carry 140kN post load. The Combi Slab solution makes it possible to design a monolithic slab, without joints, to meet tight rotation requirements from ASRS supplier. Providing an exceptional finished product.

Coca Cola Amatil new Distribution Facility in Queensland Australia, a 30,000m2 warehouse. This warehouse includes 9,000m2 of High-Bay Racking with an automated storage handling system. At 35 metres high, and with post loads of 27 Tonnes, the most suitable solution was a Seamless Combi Slab.   The remaining 21,000m2 uses our more typical Jointless slabs with Dramix 3D 65/60BG at 30kg/m3. With Dramix 4D initialised in the many foundations on the project as well.   McVeigh consulting engineers worked very closely with BOSFA and Bekaert® in determining the right solution for the Combi Slab to accommodate the different sorts of loading that will be applied to the slab. And they were able to utilise our Bekaert® Software to confirm the designs themselves for the fibre only slabs and the foundations.  A great example of everyone working together, with the tools available, to achieve the best possible solution in multiple applications on the one high profile project.

11,000m2 External Container Pavement (Independent Real Estate Consortium)

Dramix 4D Combi Slab allowed for significant reduction in slab thickness from Conventional Design, including Client requirement for fully-loaded Container Pavement (no BPA reduction factor applied), the removal of Saw Cuts also attractive for long-term maintenance savings.

As any owner of a commercial facility knows the concrete slab is the life line of the operation, if it fails its very difficult to operate and keep up the demands of the day to day efficiencies required of any commercial operation. This is why the Dramix Combi Slab option offers such a perfect solution. With the removal of not only saw cuts but also dowelled joints, the risk of the slab not being operational from a damaged joint is completely eliminated.
With the removal of joints the overall slab can also be designed thinner and more robust and this is why container yards are now opting for this solution, the benefits far out way the risk of a failed slab.
Well done to Kerman’s, Perth Concrete Services and Holcim for an excellent job.

Dramix 5D65/60BG was used to replace all the conventional structural reinforcing in over 3km of foundations required to support the concrete sound barriers along State Highway 1 in Ellerslie.

Dramix warehouse slab designs offer greater design efficiencies. The Stihl warehouse has now been in operation for around 4years now and is performing very well. Yet another example of how well a Dramix steel fibre reinforced slab does perform.

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.

This is the first Dramix slab on pile project in Malaysia. Pile spacing is 3.2m x 3.2m grid, the slab is resting on 200mm x 200mm square pile. No pile caps are required for the construction of the slab. The floor is constructed by Asia Powermix with TK Flat Floor Malaysia.
