Fibre reinforced concrete floor for high-bay warehouse 2020 - Belgrade, Serbia (RS)

Project name

Fibre reinforced concrete floor for high-bay warehouse

Year

2020

Location

Belgrade, Serbia

Application

Fibre reinforced concrete floor

Advantages and Benefits

  • In this high-bay warehouse, self-propelled forklifts are used, which required a high flatness of the floor and can only be realized by subsequent grinding of the concrete floor. Due to the use of macro PP fibres, the grinding could be executed with comparably little wear and carried out efficiently.
  • With the classic reinforcement design, steel rebars would have been installed in two layers. Hence, drillings for the assembly of the racks would have to be done according to a detailed plan to avoid hitting the reinforcement. On the other hand, when using macro PP-fibres, the positioning of the shelves is completely flexible allowing any configuration required even in future.
  • Finally, it is important to notice, that the use of macro PP-fibres is advantageous for the operation of self-propelled forklifts, since the function of the control-relevant induction loops is not disturbed by voltage or magnetic effects.

Masterfiber

A new approach was deliberately taken in this project. By using a hybrid reinforcement consisting of macro PP-fibres and conventional steel rebar reinforcement it was possible to eliminate the upper steel reinforcement layer, which led to several advantages.

All in all, the solution with underlying steel bar reinforcement and 3.5 kg/m³ of macro PP-fibres offered many advantages compared to the original conventional rebar reinforcement and was successfully implemented.
