Post Tension: Slab on Grade since 1995 Fully Functional
16 000m2 of slab on grade (ground surface slab) with Post tension solutions, was constructed in the 1990's.
Completion of Construction: 1995
Scope of the project involved post tension design, provision of material and installation of the solutions for 16 000 square meters of industrial post tension cable without expansion joints. Today we find it alive and well, functioning to its original requirements set out over 20 years ago. Daily point loads of over 5KN traversing the complete site without experiencing any restrictions, repairs or concerns.
Over 4 500 Tons of cable was installed.
Interesting fact: Adjacent conventional slab needs replacement after 12 years of being exposed to the same high axle and static loading.
