Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete is easy to place, faster to build, and proven to work!
Steel fibre reinforced concrete provides significant savings over traditional flooring systems or complicated designs.
READY Floor concrete arrives on site pre-reinforced with no additional mesh required as fibres are added to the mix during batching at the plant. This saves significant time and disruption on site for contractors and by eliminating traditional steel mesh reinforcing, costs associated with the foundation and slab are often 20% lower than a traditional system.
Steel fibres in READY Floor are evenly distributed throughout the concrete, resulting in every part of your floor and foundation being actively reinforced; at the top layer, in the core, at the sides, at the bottom. No matter what forces are working on your floor, no matter how strong they are, the fibres are always in exactly the right place to do their job.
READY Floor has many benefits which all contribute to considerable savings, including:
- Faster build time
- Fewer bookings - fewer interruptions
- BRANZ appraised and Codemarked - no consent hold up
- No need for traditional mesh
- Green product - recycled product, reduced carbon footprint
READY Floor can be used on any lightly loaded ground slabs when building on ‘good ground’, including:
- Residential floor slabs
- Shed floors
- Small commercial buildings
- Car parks
Easily save 20% or more when compared to traditional 3604 floor and foundation - that’s thousands!! Savings include:
- Less time spent on ordering, uploading, cutting, tying steel, mesh and chairs.
