The Challenge

Dramix Customer success challenge- Amazon fulfilment center, CN

A tight deadline, plus concerns over the size of the labor force required for traditional rebar installation, led to investigations of faster and more economical alternative solutions.

A tight deadline, plus concerns over the size of the labor force required for traditional rebar installation, led to investigations of faster and more economical alternative solutions.

The Solution

Instead of using rebar, Dramix® 3D steel fibers were chosen to reinforce one million square feet of this warehouse/distribution center. This not only reduced the size of labor force needed – and thus also the cost – but enabled accelerated construction, which resulted in project completion in just three months.
