Ajax Building Corporation specified FORTA-FERRO® to replace wire mesh reinforcement for the 2” topping slab on a precast hollowcore plank. The decision came because of the benefits of using macro synthetic fibers over traditional steel reinforcement. The lightweight nature of the fibers, when compared to steel reinforcement, allowed for an ease of installation. There was no need to crane or forklift heavy, dangerous steel reinforcement up to the second floor. By using FORTA-FERRO®, the contractor developed a safer working environment. FORTA-FERRO®’s non-corrosive properties allows for the May Howard Elementary Replacement School to be a durable project for many years.
