Save Time & Money - Improve Safety

Steel fibers typically require special conveyors or extra man-hours to add them due to the high dosage per cubic yard. Steel mats or rebar are very labor intensive to place on chairs and supports and to tie properly. The 3-dimensional FORTA-FERRO® fibers can be placed with a laser guided screed and can eliminate the need for a concrete pump in these situations. FORTA-FERRO® benefits by reducing labor hours and placement time, providing significant job savings.

In most situations, FORTA-FERRO® can safely and reliably replace all non-structural steel in slab-on-grade concrete. The use of traditional wire mesh or steel rebar in slab-on-ground applications can come with a list of safety issues. Wire mesh can be difficult to lay down and raise a tripping hazard among concrete workers on job sites. Without using these traditional methods, FORTA-FERRO® allows for significant safety improvements while also a decreasing labor and total project costs.
