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.

The Secret Below-Slab Ingredient for Building an Energy-Efficient Home
ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) E1745 is the Standard Specification for Plastic Water Vapor Retarders Used in Contact with Soil or Granular Fill under Concrete Slabs. This standard requires products undergo conditioning testing designed to simulate in-service (under-slab and installation) conditions, and it classifies vapor retarders based on their tensile strength, puncture resistance, and water vapor permeance ratings.
