DUCON-concrete as a safety net
Large rooms and halls with cantilevered ceiling areas such as gymnasiums, public buildings, production facilities or buildings with high security requirements such as data centers make high demands on the structural safety.
Ceiling structures of conventional reinforced concrete exhibit in the case of component failure (e.g. through explosions) a for humans and the establishment dangerous debris throw.
The strengthening of reinforced concrete ceilings with a layer of debris protecting DUCON-concrete can here lead to a significant improvement in safety. Experiments have shown that debris protective layers of DUCON-concrete can absorb the local failure of reinforced concrete components from a component thickness of 1.5 cm. The debris protective layer of DUCON-concrete acts as a safety net, which prevents the precipitation of debris. Persons or highly sensitive facilities can be successfully protected.
