Buildings

Are you a building owner, engineer or contractor looking to update your structure for new tenants? Ductal® offers a simple, safe and efficient solution for your floor reinforcement. Our thin overlays are ideal for easy, safe application, without the need for specific skills or lengthy preparation.

 

Floor Reinforcement

When a building’s purpose changes its structure must change with it. From transforming offices into a commercial center or from housing into shops, these changes normally require significant floor reinforcement to increase the bearing capacity of existing slabs.

Conventional methods based on implementing a composite carbon reinforcement on the underside of a floor requires detailed technical know-how and can also entail complex preparation and safety procedures. Ductal®’s floor reinforcement solution is not only simpler to apply than composite methods, but also adds UHPC properties to your structure, including impressive strength, durability and superior fire resistant properties at a minimal weight addition. Ductal® also has the ability to bond to existing concrete surfaces to generate structural composite action.

How can Ductal® help?

  • Minimal surface preparation
  • Easy casting
  • Material thickness in the range of 3 to 6 cm (1 to 2.4 in)

A thin UHPC overlay is cast on the existing floors, lending the structure Ductal®’s high compressive strength and durability with a low dead weight addition. This layer is quick and easy to apply, and requires no specific know-how, limiting your risk of error or delay in meeting completion targets. And this all with the additional benefits of efficiency and value for money, perfect for all building owners or contractors.
