Orange County Northern Campus Detention Center
For the Orange County Northern Campus Detention Center in Hillsborough, NC, FiberForce 750 was used to replace 6×6-
W2.9 x W2.9 in Slab on Grade and the WWF in composite metal decks. The primary motivation for using fiber was for cost savings as well as time-management benefits.
Additional benefits of using FiberForce 750 to replace traditional steel reinforcement include:
- Crack-width control for concrete due to shrinkage and temperature restraint
- Redistribution of shrinkage-stresses in concrete
- Increases in concrete durability – including impact and abrasion resistance, fatigue strength, and ductility
