World Leader in Concrete Reinforcement Technology!

Warner Robins, GA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

H igh-fiber column-line floor applications have over 13 years of U.S. project experience, the first of which was placed in the spring of 2000. Though the concept is quite new to many in the flooring market, many specifiers, contractors, and owners have now embraced the technique for a growing number of new applications and projects. While the column-line format is generally now considered as ‘conservative’, some projects have dramatically expanded the envelope.

Such is the case in this month’s featured project – the Rigby’s Family Entertainment Complex – where premier concrete contractor, Bryan Birdwell, placed almost 22,000 square feet of joint-free skating rink floor reinforced with FORTA-FERRO® Macro Fibers, and won a world-record Golden Trowel award in the process. Bryan Birdwell’s passion for improving the art of sustainable floors and the confidence he has for FORTA products is a great example to anyone in the construction industry.
