Food Warehouse

Ghent, Belgium - 2012

Project Description

A food warehouse in Belgium was in need of a reinforcement method for their floors. Originally, steel fiber was specified as the reinforcement method but was ultimately abandoned due to the temperature changes that the food storage environment requires on a daily basis. Specifiers chose FORTA-FERRO® as a viable solution to the temperature issue while also being easier to mix, place and finish than the costly steel fiber method. In total, FORTA-FERRO® was used in 20,000 square meters of concrete at a thickness of 15 cm requiring over 12,113 kilograms of fiber.

Key Points:
