Roles that canzac played in this project
Product Recommendation and Supply

Project Challenge

Concrete compressive strength should not be over specified, as not only does higher strength concrete cost more, it also has a higher drying shrinkage and this will increase the general crack width.

The Canzac Solution

Joint Free Slab

The principal objective with joint free slabs is to dissipate the effects of drying shrinkage as uniformly as possible in the form of fine cracks throughout the entire area of the slab, and to produce only fine cracks that do not adversely affect applied finishes.

The Benefits & Results

  • Thinner Slabs through simplified detailing
  • Full engineering design and support provided
  • Substantial savings in construction for all slabs
  • No sawn control joints means no filling of joints used to cast tilt panels
  • Lighter reinforcement due to nature of Joint Free Slab crack inducer grid
