The Industrial Concrete Flooring Contractors based in Yorkshire, Nationwide Concrete Flooring has recently carried out the design and construction a new steel fibre reinforced jointless concrete floor slab for a new waste transfer station in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
The steel fibres supplied by Bekaert where integrated into the concrete at a dosage ate of 35kg/m3. This provide enough steel and shrinkage control to allow the reinforced ground
bearing floor slab to be jointless. The term jointless in a concrete floor slab means that there is no need for any induced contraction joints. This is ideal for any waste transfer station as there are less joints to damage from the front buckets of the large loading shovels.The jointless steel fibre reinforced concrete floor slab also receives a dry shake topping surface finish, which is power floated into the surface of the concrete floor slab.The dry shake concrete hardener not only surpresses the steel fibres at the surface of the concrete, but also enhances the abrasion resistance of the concrete surface and improves the longevity of the steel fibre reinforced concrete floor floor surface. The floor is still laid and power floated to the flatness tolerance of FM3 as per TR34
