Marietta, GA - February 2011

Project Description

The light-to-medium duty parking space areas were reinforced with 1.5 lbs. / cu. yd. of 1.5″ long FORTA® GREEN-NET®, a net-shaped fiber made from 100% recycled polypropylene materials. For the medium-to-heavy duty parking and driving areas, 7.5 lbs. /cu. yd. of 1.5″ long FORTA-FERRO® was added to the pervious concrete for additional toughness. In both cases, the fibers mixed and distributed well, and offered minimal visible evidence on the pavement surface. Previous laboratory work-ups of the project mix using 7.5 lbs. / cu. yd. of the FORTA-FERRO® had revealed an increase in concrete yield of approximately 7% , allowing for significant material savings in cement and aggregate. This successful demonstration project has led to additional project applications, and was one of many afforded by FORTA®‘s participation as a founding corporate sponsor of the National Pervious Concrete Pavement Association.
