Twintec’s 'jointless' floor slabs offer exceptional durability and performance. Floors are cast in large panels using steel fiber reinforced concrete. They do not require traditional sawn-induced contraction joints, which are a major cause of floor problems.
Due to practical limitations on the area that can be constructed at any one time, Twintec uses steel armoured construction joints at the edges of each panel.
With proven expertise in design, concrete behaviour and SFRC technology, as well as strict monitoring and control over production, Twintec can construct panel sizes of up to 2500m2, depending on concrete quality and availability.
Uniformly mixed steel fibers eliminate the need for sawn-induced contraction joints, which are a leading cause of floor problems and the biggest cost for ongoing maintenance on both floor and equipment.
With no sawn-induced contraction joints, and steel armoured construction joints at the edges of each panel only, MHE equipment can operate at optimum efficiency.
With reinforcement from steel fibers incorporated into the concrete, there’s no need for steel reinforcement to be placed prior to concrete works and continuous large panel pouring is achieved, providing a safer working environment.
SFRC reduces plastic settlement, leading to greater achievable flatness tolerances and no remedial grinding.
Reduced slab thickness, cement replacement and the option to use re-valued fibers. Steel fibers uniformly throughout concrete provide increased impact resistance.
A number of cost benefits through value engineered solutions, including increased productivity, thinner floor slabs which require less concrete and optimised pile spacing and sizing.
From the earliest concept planning stage of your project, Twintec can provide consultative information to assist with preliminary design and budget planning.
