Millcreek Manor Skilled Nursing Facility

Erie, PA - September 2013

Project Description

FORTA-FERRO® at 4.0 lbs. / cu. yd. was specified as an alternative to the traditional wire mesh in this 4-level skilled nursing facility. The FORTA-FERRO® presented no issues regarding pumping and provided the finishers with an excellently finished slab. The use of FORTA-FERRO® as a substitution for wire mesh in composite metal desk applications has become a much more common practice due to the ease of use, cost savings and safety benefits over wire mesh. FORTA-FERRO® also offers three-dimensional reinforcement which wire mesh cannot offer. This results in a better reinforced concrete slab that will last well into the future.

Key Points:
