Better Baked Foods – Erie, PA

Erie, PA - February 2019

Project Description

The pavement in the truck parking area for Better Baked Foods in Erie, PA was reinforced with FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers. Originally steel wire mesh was specified, but the contractor opted for fibers instead. A fiber dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd was used in this 700 sq yd job. Using FORTA-FERRO gave the pavement a better wearing surface on top of the concrete. Owners also wanted a parking area that could withstand the weight of the high truck volume. FORTA-FERRO met that request by increasing durability and reducing cracking – demonstrating how well fiber works in pavement.
