Lewis Construction Chooses Stego® Wrap as Critical Component in Hi-Tech Fulfillment Center Project
After 35 years in the concrete construction industry, Steve Lewis has seen dramatic changes in best practices and even bigger leaps in technology.
But nothing may compare to the recent changes the industry has seen to meet the high demands of 21st Century warehouse design: flatter floors, extended joints – anything to make fulfillment, logistics and robotics move more smoothly.
Avoid Costly Pitfalls in Concrete Slab Design
It's just a concrete floor.
Historically designers, builders and occupants of industrial buildings may have whistled past their concrete slabs without considering the lack of under-slab water vapor protection they put into their slab design. That is, until they were confronted by one of a fearsome trio of very costly disasters.
7 Factors to Consider When it Comes to Under-Slab Vapor Barrier Placement
Baker Concrete Solves a Complex Problem with a Simple Solution: Beast® Form Stake and Beast® Concrete Accessories
Spencer Wood had a problem without a solution. The project engineer for Baker Concrete had a massive data center project in New Mexico that came with a critical demand from waterproofing consultants and the building’s owners: absolutely no punctures
in the below-slab vapor barrier.
Vapor barrier thickness is a key attribute of a below-slab vapor barrier but it does not tell the whole story. Tune into this Stego IQ episode where Stego Technical Director Dan Marks provides some insight on all the key attributes that make up a high-performing under-slab vapor barrier which is puncture resistance, tensile strength, and most importantly permeance and longevity.
Stego IQ returns with the latest episode dispelling the myth about vapor barriers and slab curl. Dan Marks, Stego's Technical Director, returns to the screen to explain the short term slab curl effects with a vapor barrier as well as the long term effects of slab curl if you do not install a below slab vapor barrier.
