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.
