A large portion of the summer 2012 expansion project for Clow Stamping Company included over 52,000 square feet of concrete slab on ground. Partnering with the FORTA Corporation design assistance team, design/builder Nor-Son Inc. and contractor Kasella Concrete were able to take advantage of the material and labor cost savings by using FORTA-FERRO® compared to conventional steel. Engineer calculations provided ample evidence that a dosage of 7.5 lbs. / cu. yd. of the FORTA-FERRO® would offer sufficient loading capacity and improved crack control for the 12 ft x 12 ft jointed panels at a design slab thickness of 6 in. Even at the relatively high fiber dosage, FORTA-FERRO® offered no issues in the mixing, buggy delivery, placement, laser-guided screeding, or finishing processes.
