Used extensively in industrial applications, CCL’s post-tensioned slab on grade can reduce the number of joints in a slab or eliminate them entirely to cut the costs of construction and ongoing maintenance. Fewer joints improve operator comfort for drivers of forklifts and other forms of traffic, and can reduce repair and maintenance expenditure.
The tensile and flexural capacities of CCL slab on grade make it effective when dealing with difficult soils which can cause foundation movement as they expand and contract. The resulting thinner slab also provides a degree of flexibility which is able to cope effectively with excessive loading, allowing the slab to revert back once the load is removed.
Greater crack resistance is achieved because of the compressive forces applied to the post-tensioned slab, further reducing the need for costly repairs.
