CONCRETE SLAB PERTH
Concrete is the most widely used man-made material in existence. It is second only to water as the most-consumed resource on the planet. Cement is the key ingredient in concrete and has a massive carbon footprint.
Cement is the source of about 8% of the world's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, according to think tank Chatham House. If the cement industry were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter in the world - behind China and the US. It contributes more CO2 than aviation fuel (2.5%) and is not far behind the global agriculture business (12%).
WHAT MAKES ROMBUS
A VIABLE SOLUTION
Reduce carbon emissions by an average of 60%, generating carbon credits for businesses
Combat our planets greatest recycling challenges – plastic and rubber.
Rombus mesh grids have a compressive strength greater than 10,000 Tonnes per square meter when filled with concrete, saving up to 50% on a traditional concrete slab, and a compressive strength greater than 4,000 Tonnes per square meter when filled with granular materials such as road base, limestone, aggregate etc.
At a mere 40mm thick the Rombus grid mesh solution is ideal for concrete slabs and has an impressive 107 Mpa compressive strength.
Rombus grid can be installed fast reducing construction schedules, improving deadlines, and increasing productivity. Recycled plastic in excess throughout the world, with savings, effectively passed on to our customers.
Rombus Grid can be removed easily in the event that underground services need to be accessed or installed. Similarly it can be reused in rapid deploy temporary applications such as temporary access roads/paths or in emergency situations.
Rombus can be used as a drainage solution and pavement all in one by simply filling nominated areas of the pavement with permeable materials such as aggregates. Whilst our Rombus Grid is 100% designed as a pavement, it absolutely can be used as soil and turf stabilisation. Rombus Grid is a cross between a rigid and flexible pavement when filled with concrete and is ideal for concrete slabs.
