Adfil Macro & Micro Synthetic Fibres can be used in precast steps to replace conventional steel mesh.
Precast Steps, Fibres were used because the previous step's steel reinforcement had corroded due to them being positioned near a saltwater river. The corrosion caused the concrete to crack and spall. Leaving them dangerous to walk and sit on as well as aesthetically displeasing. The addition of Macro fibres ensured a none corrosive reinforcement that also gives the required structural element and gives the concrete an extended service life over the original design. Parts of this project also have acid-etched elements.
- Reduced manufacture costs
- Reduced Transport costs
- Reduced reinforcement storage requirement
- Reduced Co2 emissions
- Better design scope
