SFRC structural foundations
Twintec STRUCTURAL® combines quality concrete with high performance fibres at high dosages to produce slabs that can support high structural loads and ensure foundation stability for a wide number of applications.
Steel fibres combined with local reinforcement for the peaks of stresses ties the slab to the rest of the structure. This, together with the concrete and the latest concrete admixtures, ensures an important gain in material properties such as flexural and shear capacity, resistance to impact and fatigue as well as the control of shrinkage and thermal internal stresses. It is ideally suited to large structures where elements are spanning in both directions due to the multi-directional dispersion of the fibre reinforcement.
Multi-storey building foundations – residential, malls, car parks, hotels, etc
Ground foundations – silos, tanks, wind turbines, water treatment plants
Container storage foundations
Objective design for each individual case based on detailed engineering and subsoil test results, resulting in reduced slab depth.
80% reduction in programme time compared to traditional steel re-bar design solutions.
Significant reduction in use of steel by the use of steel fibres instead of heavy rebar. Reduced slab depth equates to substantial reduction in volume of concrete required.
