Ports & Docks
Adfil Macro & Micro Synthetic Fibre Reinforced Concrete provide significant benefits in the construction and repair of Port and Docks Facilities.
Ports and Docks are key Logistical Hubs supporting the distribution of Cargo Worldwide. The Cargo is stored in large Steel Containers which are loaded & unloaded via Crane, Reach Stackers and specialist Handling Equipment from the docked Cargo Ships. With some containers weighing in excess of 20T and being stacked in multiple layers, it is critical that the Concrete Slab contains appropriate reinforcement to accommodate such loads otherwise this could lead to serviceability problems and temporary closure of the affected area.

The replacement of conventional steel mesh with DURUS Synthetic Fibre will eliminate the risk of corrosion and any associated problems. Macro fibre reinforcement will allow more efficient installation as there is no requirement for handling, placement and fixing of steel mesh. This will significantly reduce construction time. The risk of steel being placed incorrectly, with inadequate cover, will not be a factor if it is replaced with DURUS Macro Fibres, which will be dispersed consistently throughout 100% of the volume of the concrete on delivery to the site. This will also eliminate significant Health & Safety hazards associated with steel fixing.
