slabs on metal decks
Both the FiberForce and DuraForce product lines can fast-track construction schedules and lower direct costs in slabs on composite metal decks. Fibers can be used as temperature shrinkage reinforcement, reducing the time needed to place continuous reinforcement. DuraForce(v-) assists with moisture vapor reduction, which allows for the floor covering to be installed sooner without a moisture test.
The ANSI/Steel Deck Institute (SDI) Standard for composite steel floor deck-slabs recommends a minimum dosage rate of 4lb/yd³ for synthetic macrofibers. The use of fibers in slabs on metal decks is limited to composite decks only. Care must be taken when selecting which steel can be replaced. For recommendations specific to a given application, please contact a FullForce representative.
