Constructed back in 2012, there are 4 major intersections between Karratha and Dampier. Each intersection constructed using a concrete slab reinforced with Dramix 3D fibres. These intersections are noted to have between 14,000 – 20,000 vehicle movements per day ranging from standard vehicle loads to major road train loadings. So if you’ve ever wondered if those little fibres can handle the load, here’s a great example of yes they can.

Built in 2016 this truck stop is located in Karratha, North West Western Australia. The facility is located on the North West Coastal Hwy, servicing many travellers and heavy haulage vehicles in the area.

Cockburn Shopping centre upgrade was a top down construction method, fairly new to Perth back in 2013 / 2014 and designed via Airey Taylor Construction. So, it was very pleasing that ATC adopted a fibre solution for the carpark basement slab on this project. It’s a great example of SFRC and is easy to access should you like to see how well a Dramix SFRC slab performs.

Elizabeth Quay is a mixed-use development project in the Perth central business district. Located on the north shore of Perth Water and centred on the landmark Swan Bells, it was named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II during her Diamond Jubilee.
BOSFA and Dramix are very proud to have been involved in this iconic project, construction of the SFRC slabs started in 2012 and completed some 12 months later. As you meander around this fantastic precinct, be rest assured you are walking on Dramix SFRC concrete pavements, clad with magnificent locally sourced granite paving. Even the curved steps and seats are all resting on Dramix SFRC.

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.

Griya Idola Industrial Park just launched a new industrial area in Tangerang, west of Jakarta. The pavement is prepared for heavy truck loads and long term usage. Original design is 300mm thick slab with K400 concrete reinforced by 2 layer of wiremesh M8. This was completely replaced with Dramix 3D fibres, first slab was cast in 2014 and still continue until today.

The new factory of TAL (Hong Kong) Garment factory in Ba Thien, Vinh Phuc Vietnam was designed with precast hollow core panels for the upper decks. To ensure a flat surface a reinforced topping layer is placed over the precast decks. The most efficient and easiest way to place this topping layer is to utilise a Dramix Steel fibre reinforced concrete layer.
Completed in December 2015 – A total of 75,000m2 at 30mm thick was bonded to the precast panels allowing for larger distances between saw cuts upt o 10m.

 

 

One of the major benefits when using Dramix steel fibre reinforced concrete (DSFRC) is the efficiency in design, efficiency in construction and the cost effective solutions that can be achieved.
The below images are a small sample from various project sin the North West that have utilised Dramix in the concrete.

After many Truck Stop pavements throughout Australia being constructed with Dramix steel fibres, which handle the heavy loads and significant number of truck and car movements, Hutchinson Builders knew it was the right option for the new Caltex Truck Stop at Chinderah in Northern NSW. This solution allowed them to remove all traditional reinforcing mesh, reduce the pavement thickness, no requirement for a pump, saving them time and money.
