Dramix® steel fiber concrete reinforcement for residential applications

Dramix® steel fiber concrete reinforcement for residential applications
Flooring, foundations, foundation slabs or cellar walls and basements, residential houses and lightly loaded industrial buildings contain various concrete structural elements, each of which are subjected to very specific loads. Dramix® concrete reinforcement is the reference in steel fiber solutions, and a more versatile alternative to traditional reinforcement methods.

Flexible and efficient reinforcement

Steel fiber reinforcement is much more flexible to work with than traditional mesh or rebar, allowing complex shapes and use in narrow, hard to reach spaces. The fibers assure uniform reinforcement of your concrete structures by creating a multidimensional steel web that ensures an efficient redistribution of tensions for optimal crack control. Fiber reinforcement is easy to dose, mix, pump and finish, making it the ideal reinforcement solution for various residential buildings such as family houses, apartment blocks, public and utility buildings.

Concrete reinforcement for any shape or dimension

Adding Dramix® steel fiber reinforcement to concrete improves many of the mechanical properties of the basic material, such as toughness, impact resistance, shear strength, flexural strength and ductility. Dramix® steel fibers are CE certified and suitable for any concrete design, unlimited by shape, dimensions or complexity.

Cut your costs with the best in class fibers

Dramix® steel fibers offer an easy and cost-effective way to reduce crack formation. The innovative design of the fibers enables you to save time and money by eliminating mesh and reduce your construction time. Depending the application or concrete thickness, you can save up to 35% on placement and material costs.
