Precast reinforced with Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete.

Precast concrete offers a versatile and efficient construction method for a wide range of applications. However, traditional precast elements often require conventional mesh or bar reinforcement to achieve adequate strength and crack resistance. This can be time-consuming and complex, especially in intricate 3D structures. Improved crack control, durability, and impact resistance is achieved with Precast reinforced with Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC).

Steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) revolutionizes precast concrete by providing an alternative reinforcement solution. Steel fibres, dispersed throughout the concrete matrix, offer several advantages over conventional reinforcement:

  • Enhanced crack control: Steel fibres effectively bridge hairline cracks, preventing them from propagating and compromising the structural integrity of precast elements.
  • Improved durability: Steel fibres enhance the durability of precast elements by resisting impact, abrasion, and freeze-thaw cycles, extending their lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.
  • Simplified production: Steel fibres can eliminate the need for conventional mesh or bar reinforcement, simplifying the production process, especially in complex 3D elements.
  • Faster construction: Steel fibres eliminating the need for mesh or bar reinforcement expedites the production of precast elements, leading to faster overall construction.

SFRC’s versatility extends to a wide range of precast applications, including:

  • Rainwater tanks
  • Septic tanks
  • Housing walls
  • Segmental tunnel linings
  • Retaining wall elements
  • Self-supporting non-load bearing walls or facade panels
  • Pipes
  • Burial vaults
  • Transportable buildings
  • Manholes
  • Inspection chambers

The potential applications of SFRC in precast construction are virtually limitless, only constrained by the imagination of the precaster.

Embrace the transformative power of SFRC and elevate your precast concrete solutions to new heights of performance and efficiency.
