'Jointless’ sfrc ground floor slab suspended on piles
A high performance ‘jointless’ concrete ground floor slab suspended on piles.
Twintec is renowned for developing processes and materials technology for ground bearing floor slabs suspended on piles. In-house engineers work closely with the project team in the early design stage to design the best solution for each customer’s project, with the appropriate pile types, pile spacing and interfaces such as edge beams.
Freeplan S® floors use structural steel fibres that have been developed and tested for structural applications.
Twintec can provide design optimised piling solutions, offering a complete solution.
Uniformly mixed steel fibres 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 fibres 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 fibres. Steel fibres uniformly throughout concrete provides 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.
