Concrete road plates are designed for use in the construction of temporary road surfaces, such as assembly roads on construction sites, access to any buildings and journeys available for all types of vehicles with cargo. So what kind of concrete are they made of?
Road concrete slabs
Road plates in a constantly growing industry are an increasingly popular alternative to asphalt roads. Not only that concrete road plates are much cheaper than the standard road, they are also quick to assemble and very resistant to all kinds of damage. It is not surprising, therefore, why entrepreneurs decide so often on such an alternative. Boards can withstand the heavy flow of heavy vehicles, hence the great interest in them on construction sites. A big advantage is also the possibility of multiple use, after the construction of the board can be re-sold or transported to the next construction. The cost of building an asphalt road is many times higher than the construction of a road from road panels. In the case of damage to the pavement, the repair of the asphalt road is expensive, and in the case of road plates, it is enough to replace one damaged plate.
Why is GRC cladding such a willingly used element?
Concrete reinforced with steel fiber is used to strengthen industrial floors as well as communication pavements, as well as to perform non-structural prefabricated elements. The use of thick synthetic and polymeric fibers has a similar meaning to the reinforcement of steel fibers, with the addition of anti-corrosive agents to the concrete. Adding smaller diameter fibers to the concrete reduces the occurrence of stresses and cracks. It is more resistant to weather conditions. It facilitates crushing and stretching resistance. Polypropylene fibers are widely used in road, hydrotechnical, industrial and prefabrication construction, for example in the production of paving stones, thin-walled coils, paving slabs, and cement tiles. In particular glass fibers give the concrete new properties, defined by architectural and decorative concrete.
