Four reasons why Strategic Reinforcement is a more sustainable choice for concrete hardstandings
Back to basics: What is strategic reinforcement?
By leveraging the high load transfer capacity of the PD3® tapered plate dowels at the sawn joints, and combining them with Danley® Dowels at the construction joints, Danley’s Strategic Reinforcement™ Design provides the highest deflection control tolerance in line with ACI 360R-10 standards, as well as complying with Concrete Society TR66 Rev. 1: External in-situ Concrete Paving and ACI 330.2R-17: Guide for the Design and Construction of Concrete Site Paving for Industrial and Trucking Facilities. Crucially, for those looking to improve the sustainability credentials of a project, the design optimises material usage and labour costs by removing all mesh reinforcement and placing steel at the joints, where it provides the most benefit.
