State Correctional Institute – Marienville, PA

Marienville, PA - September 2019

Project Description

The Forest State Correctional Institute in Marienville, PA specified fiber to reinforce the new garage floor slab for their maintenance vehicles. FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers were chosen for this 310 yd project and used in a fiber dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd. Using FORTA-FERRO fibers in the concrete will reduce cracking in the floor slab despite the high-volume weight of the trucks the garage houses. Owners also wanted to reduce the permeability of the concrete and achieved this by adding FORTA-FERRO fibers.
