The Solution

The use of Dramix® 3D steel fibers to reinforce the warehouse floor meant that the thickness could be reduced by 3 cm. The project took only four months, which was six weeks less than anticipated. This represented a substantial saving in terms of materials and construction time, while maintaining high performance and durability.
