DURUS® EasyFinish fibers can completely or partially eliminate the costly and cumbersome bar reinforcement in strip foundations, ensuring proper placement, thereby eliminating the heavy and tedious lifting.

Strip foundations

For in-situ cast-in-place strip foundations, concrete reinforced with DURUS® EasyFinish will fully or partially replace the reinforcing bars in foundations and significantly ease the work process.

The concrete is reinforced when it arrives on site. The concrete structure achieves a 3-dimensional matrix of fibers, which gives the foundation the same strength as traditional steel-reinforced concrete.

DURUS® EasyFinish can be used in all types of construction where strip foundations are used, such as residential and multi-storey buildings, agricultural buildings, industrial buildings, retail stores and others.

Time saving - Better economy

When strip foundations are reinforced with DURUS® EasyFinish, time is saved on processing, forming and placing bar steel. The concrete gun only has to be unloaded once in the strip footings, as the reinforcement is mixed into the concrete. All of this contributes to an economic benefit to the overall construction budget.

Better working environment

Pre-reinforced concrete with DURUS® EasyFinish eliminates the laborious work processes involved in handling and installing steel reinforcement. Employees are no longer exposed to heavy lifting, awkward postures, dangerous lifting, lifting gear and the physically demanding work processes. Time spent cutting, bending, bending and installing steel reinforcement is saved.

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.

Easier handling

DURUS® EasyFinish does not have to be delivered, stored, secured or coordinated by the construction management. It arrives mixed into the concrete with no special treatment required.

No equipotential bonding

By reinforcing the entire building with DURUS® EasyFinish, without any reinforcing steel, potential equalization can be avoided.
