Danley’s Strategic Reinforcement™ Design Meets Flagship Standard

The Challenge

When one of the world’s largest discount wholesale brands began constructing its new 14,000m2 flagship store, it needed a concrete floor capable of withstanding the highest levels of traffic, including the sustained use of warehouse vehicles with small plastic wheels.


Built for longevity, this flagship location needed a floor which could guarantee minimal maintenance and downtime throughout its lifespan, which meant selecting a construction method which addressed the common issues of concrete stressing, cracking and joint spalling. 


After exploring a number of floor construction options, they chose Danley’s Strategic Reinforcement Design.

The Solution

Danley’s Strategic Reinforcement™ method mitigates internal and external induced restraint and stress to optimise the load carrying capacity of the concrete. At the same time, it delivers the joint stability required for technologically advanced material handling equipment and all types of vehicular traffic. 

 

Strategically reinforced floor slabs do not require the use of central reinforcing mesh or plastic chairs and supports. Instead, joint spalling and random cracking is minimised with saw-cut joints strategically placed to mitigate cracks and limit differential deflection of the slab sections. 

 

The Danley team suggested the use of their ACI-complaint, PD3 Tapered Plate Dowel Cradles, which delivered less than 0.25mm deflection under load.

The Result

The use of Danley’s Strategic Reinforcement™ Design coupled with the performance benefits of the PD3 Tapered Plate Dowel Cradles not only reduced the setup and installation time of the entire floor laying process, but also extended the life-cycle of this flagship facility floor.

Next PLC

When retail giant Next PLC needed to extend the warehousing facility at its distribution centre in South Elmsall, West Yorkshire, it appointed Adept Consulting Engineers to design and install the pavement for the new external service yard.
Despite knowing that mesh reinforcement is common practice for service yard slabs, Adept wanted to push the boundaries of performance and design, and for that, they consulted Danley.
The new external service yard would need to withstand high-traffic heavy goods vehicles, and guarantee minimal maintenance and downtime over the lifecycle

Avery Weigh-Tronix

An iconic location for manufacturing, the Avery Weigh-Tronix site in Smethwick is home to the Soho Foundry and holds the title for the longest fully operational manufacturing site in the UK.
When it came to refurbishing their truckyard, they needed a paving solution that would withstand 47 tonne lorries on a daily basis, and require little maintenance or downtime throughout its lifespan. Not a company to shy away from innovation, Avery Weigh-Tronix were keen to use the Danley Strategic Reinforcement Design - a pavement installation system that would require
