Viskaalin – Muhos, Finland

Muhos, Finland - September 2019

Project Description

Viskaalin is one of the largest cattle breeders in Finland with two barns, a manure hall, and spaces for 1,200 cows. Owners replaced wire mesh with FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers at a dosage of 4.5 kg/m3. By using FORTA-FERRO at this dosage, engineers were able to extend joint spacing in this project totaling 12,000 m2. Forgoing wire mesh and using fibers instead, allowed for speed of construction and cost savings as well.
