For in-situ cast-in-situ point foundations, concrete reinforced with DURUS® EasyFinish will fully or partially replace the reinforcement curves in point foundations and significantly ease the work process, as the concrete is reinforced when it arrives at the construction site. This gives the concrete a 3-dimensional matrix of fibers, which gives the foundation the same strength as traditional steel-reinforced concrete.
Point foundations can be reinforced with DURUS® EasyFinish and can be used in a wide variety of construction applications, such as residential and multi-storey buildings, agricultural construction, industrial construction, retail stores and more.
Better working environment
Precast concrete with DURUS® EasyFinish eliminates the laborious work processes involved in handling and installing the steel reinforcement baskets. Employees are no longer exposed to heavy lifting, awkward postures, dangerous lifting and lifting gear and all the physically demanding work processes and risks associated with steel reinforcement work.
Guaranteed correct positioning
When using traditional steel reinforcement, there is a risk of misplacement. This can have a disastrous effect on the quality of the precast structure. DURUS® EasyFinish is distributed throughout the concrete matrix according to DS/EN 206. DS/EN 206 and thus constitutes a three-dimensional reinforcement solution. This ensures a reinforcement effect throughout the entire cross-section of the structure.
DURUS® EasyFinish does not need to be delivered, stockpiled, secured, or coordinated by construction management. It arrives in mixed concrete with no special handling requirements, while reducing material waste such as steel clippings.
Time saving - Better economy
When foundations are reinforced with DURUS® EasyFinish, costs are saved on expensive unmanageable reinforcement baskets, which are also moreCO2 heavy than DURUS® EasyFinish, and at the same time time time is saved on the installation of the baskets. All this adds up to a financial gain for the overall construction budget.
No equipotential bonding
By reinforcing the entire building with DURUS® EasyFinish, without any reinforcing steel, potential equalization can usually be avoided altogether.
