The recent growth of the logistics, retail and industrial sector compelled a change to the way facilities need to be constructed and specially floors.

The recent growth of the logistics, retail and industrial sector compelled a change to the way facilities need to be constructed and specially floors. After receiving many inquiries from our clients asking for solutions for industrial floors problems, CCL engineers have explored the new needs of the logistics, retail and industrial sectors and the problems faced by the facility owners to come up with a specialised solution for industrial flooring construction branded as “SURFACE”. SURFACE is a complete flooring solution tailored to meet the clients’ exact needs with the target to optimise the productivity of the facility with a cost-effective flooring solution. With CCL SURFACE it is possible to extend the joint spacing, eliminate cracks, deliver a super flat surface, enhance the floor aesthetic, and reduce the maintenance cost of the floor. Moreover, CCL SURFACE solution reduces the carbon footprint of the facility.

What are the problems with current concrete paving techniques?

The current concrete paving techniques are causing many problems: concrete cracking, joint failure, levelness and flatness, low abrasion resistance, higher levels of dust, hygiene and aesthetics. All of these problems affect the productivity and performance of the industrial facilities and warehouses causing big profit losses in the long term. Those problems can be caused by an unappropriated design, bad execution and finishing of the concrete or an unsuitable surface protection.

Introducing SigmaSlab®

What is SigmaSlab®and how does it differ from the traditional system?

An innovative new concrete slab technology developed by CCL and Bekaert combining all the benefits of CCL post-tensioning with the advantages of Dramix® steel fiber concrete reinforcement.

This new technology removes the need for traditional reinforcement which in turn speeds up construction and significantly reduces installation costs as fewer site operatives are required. SigmaSlab® optimises post-tensioning and Dramix® steel fibers to deliver an optimal cost-effective solution while providing better resistance to cracking and deflection, and a more durable and low-maintenance finish.
