Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete Flooring for New Decathlon Sports Store, Warrington

Nationwide Concrete Flooring, the innovative concrete flooring contractors has recently designed and installed a fully suspended steel fibre reinforced concrete flooring floor slab on behalf of a major logistics operator in Warrington, Cheshire. The client, a major independently owned haulage and storage provider, required a concrete floor slab capable of withstanding the specific loading criteria along with an attractive aesthetic surface finish. Nationwide Concrete Flooring contractors entered into early discussions with the client and main contractor in order to agree the best long term concrete flooring solution. It was decided on a “jointless” steel fibre reinforced concrete floor, with a light grey coloured dry shake surface hardener to reflect light naturally and improve the abrasion resistance of the floor.

Using their own “in house” concrete flooring design team, Nationwide Concrete Flooring, the industrial concrete flooring contractors assigned and constructed the following concrete floor slab solution  itemised below:

  • Area 25,000 square feet
  • Concrete Volume 490m3
  • Reinforcement – Bekaert 40kg/m3 RC 65-60-BN Steel Fibres, with mesh squares over the piles only
  • 2 days Sub Base preparation
  • 1 day preparation in advance of pour
  • 2 days casting with Laser Screed
  • FM2 Flatness Tolerance as per the Concrete Societies TR34
  • Piles 250mm diameter on a 4.0m x 4.0m grid with 600mm diameter pile heads
  • Coloured dry-shake surface hardener – Permaban
  • Steel profile armoured joint – Permaban Alpha
