The first fulfillment center in Michigan for a large international electronic commerce company, specified FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers to aid in the reinforcement of their warehouse
floors. The total project is 23,040 cu yd and a dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd of fibers were used in all the slab-on-metal-deck applications. FORTA-FERRO fibers were used to hold cracking to a minimum and reduce curling over the long run. In addition, fibers provided an additional flatness and smoothness to the floor. This is a major advantage because the robots used for filling and packaging use sensor technology, making them susceptible to imperfections.
