External SFRC Hardstands

Published on 27 July 2020


External concrete hardstands are still widely designed using a conventional reinforcement method in mind. Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) should not be overlooked as an alternative. The Twintec Freeplan XT brings clear benefits to the builder, developer and end user.

Freeplan XT  is your external SFRC solution from Twintec... so what are the key benefits?

  • Faster construction times: Output for production can be up to 2,000m2 per day, 6 days a week, dependent on site conditions, concrete supply and weather. Additional time for steel mesh placement is eliminated, along with concrete pumping in most cases.
  • Low life cost: With the amount of joints significantly reduced, arris repairs and joint sealant maintenance costs are also reduced. This also translates to a lower maintenance cost for MHE wheel repairs.

Taking into account vehicle types, axle movements, vehicle weights and loading/offloading procedures, stock storage, the Twintec in-house design team will recommend the best design for your Freeplan XT external slab. This is then combined with skilled, experienced workers and the latest in concrete placing and finishing equipment, under the supervision of a dedicated Operations Manager to ensure the finished product meets the operational requirements.  Hempel Paints, Jeddah, KSA
