Highly durable and resilience
Our experience in the agricultural sector is based on hundreds of thousands of square metres of floors in cattle sheds, machine sheds, driving silos, slurry pits, cesspools, grain stores, etc. which have already been reinforced with our fibres.
Depending on what is required, the ideal type of fibre is used. For low to medium loads, we recommend using Fibrofor High Grade, a specially developed splice fibre. For high loads, on the other hand, Fibrofor Diamond, a high-performance monofibre, or Concrix ES, a high-performance macrofibre, comes into play. All types of fibres spread quickly and without clumping in the concrete and are easy to work into the surface. In addition to functioning as steel substitutes, both fibres have been shown to optimise the shrinkage behaviour of concrete.
Synthetic fibres are especially ideal for the agricultural sector, as they are resistant to aggressive liquids (faeces) and also eliminate the risk of injury to animals.
If necessary, our engineers prepare a free, static calculation based on the latest standards.

Durable concrete surfaces for intensive use.
Improves the resistance of the concrete to aggressive liquids
Millions of square metres of floors have been reinforced with high-performance synthetic fibres for more than 30 years. Typical areas of application are floors in agricultural buildings (storage rooms), greenhouses and animal stables.
Lower reinforcement costs
The total or partial elimination of conventional steel reinforcement drastically reduces reinforcement costs. The labour-intensive and thus cost-intensive installation of steel is no longer necessary. If necessary, it is also possible to combine steel with synthetic fibres.
Easy to use
The fibres are easy to mix in and distribute evenly in the concrete. All types of surface processing are possible, as the fibres can be worked into the surface very easily.
Durable and maintenance-free
Polyolefin fibres are resistant to salt water (exterior surfaces, roads, etc.) and aggressive liquids (e.g. faeces in agricultural buildings).
