Situation

In Suhr, Migros operates its largest distribution centre in the country. To optimize their operation processes, the imposed loads in the main building were increased.

Solution

With one or several layers of S&P C-Sheet 640 (E-Modul 640 kN/mm2), the lacking reinforcement is applied onto the prepared substrate's surface. This carbon fibre mesh absorbs the shear forces as required, at a defleciton of max. 2 per mille. The gradation of the sheets is carried out according to the framework model. The shear forces in the compression zone are anchored using steel L-brackets.

Material

approx.1'200 m2 S&P C-Sheet 640
